We have had nothing but good experiences at this school. The teachers were exceptional and have high expectations of the students.

If your child is a good student, they will be placed in advanced classes and mostly with very good and saavy teachers.

My child never felt homework was too much, even with extracurricular activities and honors responsibilities.

Lincoln has activities and awards that set a higher standard for students to achieve. Not many schools offer many choices.

My child was taught about self care and health which should be done in middle school everywhere. I approve that parents have this option for their kids. Respect with each other needs to be taken more seriously by the administration. No bullying allowed!

Lincoln has a special ed dept and allows special ed students in some regular classes which was good for all students to develop empathy, caring, and compassion in the students.

Spoiled kids are the worst. Lincoln cannot control what some parents teach their children at home.

The school seems very average as nothing strikes me as outstanding. The best thing about the school is the new principal, Florence Culpepper - she truly cares about each and every student Her enthusiasm and professionalism is what good leaders are made of. My greatest disappointment is that there is no Science Magnet. The other local middle school, JAMS, has an outstanding Science Magnet and LMS has none. The kids at JAMS take a big field trip every year while attending the school 6th grade goes to Catalina Island for a week, 7th graders go to Yosemite for a week and 8th graders go to Astro Camp for a week in Idywild. They also have "family camp" twice a year where all families get to go to Morro Bay and Joshua Tree. This is all coordinated by extremely committed teachers. As part of the magnet program each student must attend a variety of seminars after school (free!) for even more hands on learning opportunities. LMS has nothing like this going on and I don't understand how two schools set up to be similar in its curriculum don't offer the same opportunities. It seems fundamentally wrong and unfair. Kids from JAMS enter high school with a better foundation and excitement for science. Please know the science teacher we have at LMS is really really good but there are better learning opportunities at JAMS. Very disappointed. I feel robbed. The kids in the same district should have the same opportunities.

There was eventually an appretiation breakfast ... but other than that, I never saw a particularly concern about others.
