I am a mom who visits Lincoln elementary school during lunch time, the first grade kids have less than ten minutes to have their lunch after getting the tray with the food, the first grade kids are not allowed to drink water in the classroom eccept for 10 sips of water once a day, they are not allowed to drink water after physical education class and they have to wait after music class to get their 10 sips, if we take in account a child spends between 6 and 7 hours in school means children spend a fair ammount of time without water during the day, my girl gets her lips chapped easily and is no secret is a sign of dehidration and poor nutrition I decided to bring hot lunch for her from home. The principal has embarrassed my girl infront of other children for two times, I don't think this principal has any kind of empathy for children at all after me and my husband analizing her for two years. We have decided to remove her from this school which is a shame with good teachers in the school, but again teachers follow rules there they are hand tied, in the other hand my daughter is totally scared of the principal, we don't put fear in our girl at home why Tammy Dewolfe has to do it!!!!!

My grandson attended kindergarten here. I would rate the staff as excellent and friendly.

It is the coolest school yet, my grandkids just love going here!!!! This was the first year at Lincoln for my grandkids as they had moved over the summer. The Principle set up a time to meet just them as brand new students, show them around the school and meet their teachers which helped tremendously. Before the meeting they were not really wanting to go back to school, but after the meeting they were all pumped up and could not wait. After the first day of school all three called me and said 'GRANDMA, school was AWESOME today!.

Moving from Minnesota where the schools are top notch I was worried about Canon City schools. Lincoln is awesome! I am so impressed with the teachers and the staff. Infact, we are considering a move within the town and one of our criterias is staying within the Lincoln school area.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
