This school is amazing! The students are so full of school spirit and civic pride. The staff here are so warm and welcoming and really care for their students the same way they would their own kids. The classrooms are very relaxing and the school menu is far superior to others I've seen. Seniors take care of Freshman here and they are such compassionate young adults.

I'm a student at Lincoln, and I can tell you - I love it here! When I first came to Lincoln, I was afraid I wasn't going to make new friends. Boy, was I wrong! The other posts say that you have to be 'goofy, funny, athletic, or super smart' to get along with others.. No, you actually have to learn how to be out there a bit more. I'm well-known around campus because I'm friendly, kind, and social ( I start conversing with people during my free time outside class or when the teachers allow us to). Back in middle school, I used to have this 'shell." I knew I had to break out of it, so I did this year (freshmen year). Once you break out of your shell, you'd be amazed on how quickly you can make friends! The teachers are so friendly and very willing to help if you're struggling on something. I can't really say the same about the offices. They're all almost dull and monotone.. Not all of them anyways. Classes are great. I wish Lincoln provided more AP/Honors classes for underclassmen. Just try to be in a healthy crowd of friends and study hard. Lincoln is an excellent school with lots of spirit. Come on down to Lincoln. You won't regret it! :)

I don't love it and I don't hate it here. It's a bit tough to get the classes you want as an underclassman, and I think we need more courses. The quality of the education varies by teacher--you may get a great one, or one that sucks at teaching. The social life here depends on the students you meet, it's a hit or miss situation if you're an introvert. You kinda need to be academically endowed, athletic, goofy, or ethnic fitting to have smooth ties. School fights are rare, but do occur maybe 10-20 times per year, they're not at all murder crazy, just drama filled. Most come from the ghetto kids and I'd say the rest from girls. And yes we have policy patrol at our school, it's perfectly normal to see them everyday here. There are a variety of sports and clubs, the clubs range from academics--mathletes, speech and debate, dance, cultural ethnics, innovative--robotics, humanitarian--GSA, environmental, community service, etc.

I have attended Lincoln High School for two years before leaving. At first, this was a wonderful place filled with teachers who cared about my learning needs and wanted to make sure that I succeeded in being the best person possible. However, when I went to new classes, the teachers were constantly condescending and lacking in their abilities to teach a lesson(they only sat without speaking). When I made a complaint that I felt targeted by my teachers remarks to my counselor, it was just swept under the rug like nothing happened. The same happened with people in the school who would bully me. My counselor swore that I had never even brought this up in our discussions. To top it off, when a drug dog search came into my classroom one day, I came back to all of the contents of my bag upon my desk/the floor. The school as well said everything went to "standard procedure" and my claims of misconduct were also discounted without any questioning of school officials. In this school, if you get lucky and have some of the few teachers who challenge you to be a better student or person you are in good hands. If not, the school officials will make life for you horrible, like they did for me.

I am a current student at Lincoln High, and I have attended schools in the district my whole life. I was very excited about Lincoln in the beginning, and sadly I'm a bit disappointed now. Lincoln does offer a wide variety of AP and Honors courses, but no AP for freshman (only honors math) and one AP for sophomores. I do understand LHS is an open choice AP school, but teachers have actually told me not to apply for AP due to the fact I am a freshman, and to instead take courses at the community college. Also, I'm more of an academic person, and there is almost no academic clubs, aside from Science Olympiad and AcaDec. Lincoln's social atmosphere is also very hard to adapt to, due to the fact there is kind of a need-to-be popular vibe around. The english classes, in my opinion are lacking, and I really wish that an eng 9/eng10 honors course was available. Overall, the teachers are okay; but there are a select few that are VERY outstanding. The science department and its teachers, for the most part is great, if you are a "science nerd" like myself. Also, being on the speech and debate team is a blast! Lincoln is a decent school, but really needs to offer more AP for the lower grades.

as a current student i have mixed feelings toward lincoln. . the English courses {besides AP] are so basic that almost all work is just to keep us busy. the same can be said- no shouted- for the history classes. math and science are the only mandatory classes where the teachers really perform, especially chemistry. the drama and art departments are great programs that are, sadly, suffering from buget cuts. what i have especially noticed is that the teachers and administration never seem to agree on policy&procedure. many times, after a new rule has been created [which is often] one can overhear teachers complaining to eachother, and in some cases, subtly to students. another major concern is the admin.'s lack of interest in anything other than sports. the school's prioities are so skewed. however, if you are a hard worker, or completely selfsfficient- you'll do fine.

Courses are more rigorous.. really LHS is worth your while. You learn A LOT in your AP class. You could jump aboard the 'IB phony baloney' band wagon... but if you really want to get a honest good education... go to Lincoln High. -former IB student- turned AP LHS kid :]

I had both my children at Lincoln High. They were not prepared for the school size and just barely existed there. If your student is not a gifted, over acheiver or an athlete they don't exist there. Counselors do not encourage the student, instead they hold them back. If I had to do it all over again, my kids would have either been home schooled or gone to St. Mary's. Sorry to see the public schools going down hill fast.

If you care about the standardized test score, don't send your children here. The school's test score is declining. There are excellent teachers and teachers who don t perform. It all depends on your child s luck. School policies focus more on how to make things easier for the school, not the student s benefit. Fighting during lunch time?! Let s shorten the lunch time.

My children felt better prepared for their college course than many of their peers. From our perspective, Lincoln High School provided both of our children with the finest math and science preparation possible. They were able to take challenging and diverse courses which helped them understand their strengths, talents, and interests. Further, Lincoln's music program provided them both with many opportunities to grow as musicians and find a sense of community on campus.

I'm very disappointed with the science teachers. My daughter has been on Honor Roll for many years, and this year she barely learned anything. They expect the students to do everything on their own. Most of the students didn't learn most of the material on the Star test this year.

Although pride itself as the best high school in Stockton, Lincoln High's academic performance is no comparison to high schools in the other areas of California. Sometimes it seems like that the school cares more about its football team and the other sports related programs than its academic programs. Although Lincoln is one of the most affluent schools in the county, it still needs to do a better job to reach out to parents of these students.

It seems that the school cares more about its athletic events than academic related activities. I have rarely heard or seen the school participated in any kind of academic competitions. All I have heard are news about football games and the other sports competitions. The majority of teachers at Lincoln are excellent, but some teachers are just not into teaching at all.

As a former student, I have mixed feelings regarding the school. While they do have great academic programs, brilliant students, and a lot of counselors available for assistance, I feel that the school administration tends to coddle us where we are self-sufficient and let us free where we most need their help, though this may not be their original intentions. I felt like I only received minimal attention with regards to choosing my class schedule over the years; with a little trial and a lot of error, I managed to find the right track. Moreover, the school tends to focus on bringing the stragglers up-to-date, leaving the rest to wander for themselves until everyone is at the same level. While it is a sound plan to raise school averages, it hurts those at the top, who are condemned for challenging themselves because they're 'getting too far ahead.'

As a former student I believe Lincon offers a great opportunity to the enthusiastic or motivated student. Those who are willing to put in the extra work necessary to be prepared for university life, will find willing and more than able instructors and faculty that will assist the young student's rapid development.

Lincoln High School is a great school for a college prep child. The classes are challenging and appropriate for higher end students and do not 'baby' those who choose not to work. Also, discipline problems are taken care of quickly as to not disrupt everyone else' learning. There are many sports and theatre/band related extracurriclar activities, but less available in other areas. I have noticed that parent involvement tends to go down at the high school level in general. But there is an active PTSA. Honestly, at this age teens tend to want parents to be less visible. An all-round good school for a college bound student.

Great school, but I think the staff could do a better job of getting back to parents about concerns with their kids, but I am very glad that my kids are able to attend LHS, instead of a SUSD.

I don't have children but I sub. in all of the districts. My experience at Lincoln High has been mixed. The AP classes are indepth and have dedicated teachers while the average learners may have less experienced teachers. Overall it has a small school atmosphere and there appears to be a great deal of unity and school pride.

This is a good high school that is on its way to excellence. Still has too much of the liberal fads, but is gradually aligning with state standards (whole math). Excellent community support.

I had two children graduate from Lincoln, several years apart. I give it fairly high marks in general. The AP classes (and IMP math teachers) stimulated my children and those teachers were generally impressive; I was not as impressed with the other teachers/classes. Out of the combined 8 years my children attended, I had occasion only twice to actually complain about teachers (for poor teaching) and each time the teachers were gone the next year; did not entirely resolve the immediate issue at the time but at least someone was listening. The current music director needs some people skills but the music program is outstanding. I feel that both my children got out of Lincoln HS what they put into it and both have gone on to success.

I have two children that have attended LHS. It is a good school considering our choices in Stockton. I think it would be most helpful if the counselors met with each child each year. I know they're busy but this should be a priority. This would help the child have focus for his/her future at LHS. Each student needs to know that someone is taking an interest in them.

I recently graduated from Lincoln. Those four years of my life were the greatest. Whether it was the football games, Spirit Week, a great teacher, or a fun class, Lincoln was amazing. I definitely miss it, as I know many of my former classmates do, many who could not wait to graduate at the time. With the new, more involved principal it seems to be only getting better.

When I think of Lincoln High I am disappointed. I wish that I was given more direction on how to meet my educational and life goals for after high school. The information was available but I didn't know how to get it. I also have a brother currently attending and he has been having difficulty with their resource dept.

In general I am pleased with Lincoln High. I think my son has blossomed here. The diversity of the school helps him a place for himself, unlike at Brookside School where he attended from 1st grade through 8th grade. He recognizes that Brookside world does not represent the real world in which people are diverse not only in race, economically, but in views. The majority of Lincoln teachers are caring and are willing to help students to succeed. Communication is somewhat hard because the e-mail system has many flaws, and it's hard to get a teacher by phone. The principal has done a good job fixing some of the social problems. Administrators are now more visible on campus which make the campus safer. No more loitering at the Swenson Park.

I know from experience that i went into Lincoln as a kid and through the experiences i came out a man. The experience at Lincoln was incredable and i wouldnt trade it in for the world. The principle is a very hard working caring person and the teachers care a lot about the students as well. It is a learning experience mentally as well as a spiritual one. My student is very please just like I was when I went there. It's good to know that good things never change, and the teachers are delightful.

I attended Lincoln High from 1989-1993. I learned a lot and had a good number of quality educational opportunities, but I did find a few areas lacking. The Math program offered many course options, but wanted focus. In the honors math program, teachers came and went quite a bit, often finding themselves assigned to a particular course at the last minute. Classes were sometimes rather big, as well, which made it difficult for the teachers to make sure they were getting through to everyone. English, art, science, social science, and foreign language programs were very strong and empowering. Extracurriculars were spotty. Some programs were strong, others were handled very strangely. The school newspaper lacked direction, and at least one leadership program for juniors openly indulged in hazing new applicants. Perhaps this was the usual high school cliquishness in action, but it did seem that despite the 'diversity' of the student body, those who thrived came from certain neighborhoods where money and connections were rampant. Handle Lincoln with care.

lincoln high was a decent school. with the honors' and ap classes, i found that the teachers were truly devoted to their purpose but whenever i took a course that was on the normal track this did not appear to be the case and i did not learn much from them.

Overall we are quite pleased with the quality of teachers especially in the English Dept. The school is large with a well-diversified student body; most of the students are motivated to learn and proud of their accomplishments and their school. Because Lincoln has more than 2000 students, a wide variety of courses and extracurricular activities are available. New constuction has resulted in a uptodate library/computer center, as well as new science labs and classrooms.
