I am a proud parent of a 05 graduate from Lincoln Elemenary School. What I find amazing is that her fifth grade teacher asks me about her grades in college. Once a Viking, always a Viking

What a phenomenal school! I've never seen teacher's work so well with each other. Mrs. Shelton is always visible and available if you need to ask questions. By far, the best school in the district.

I am proud to say my son goes to Lincoln. The teachers and parents are very involved. They have a music program, which I sure hope they don't loose! Mrs. Shelton is a very hands-on principle. She really knows her kids.

I think Lisa Shelton is the principal that Lincoln school has needed for a very long time. She is an excellent administrator. We also heave teachers that are top-notch.I am very proud to say that my child attends Lincoln School. If anyone has a chance, check out the comparisons between the schools in this area. We are at the top of the charts. Way to go Lincoln School

I really like the pricipal at this school. She's got great energy. I don't think they focus enough on extracurricular programs. ESL seems to be a priority due to the large number of non-english speakers. I wish they adapted better to my child's learning disability.

I have 2 daughters that attended Lincoln Elm in 04-05. We all loved the school. The teachers were wonderful and very involved in the students. It was very personal. It was my youngests first year in Kindergarten. She did great and I give alot of credit to her teacher for that. He knew how to get every kid in his class involved and throughout the year learned each students strong points to help them feel successful.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
