Abraham Lincoln High School is a traditional high school in Southwest Denver with over 50 years of positive history. Lincoln is one of the safest schools in all of DPS, and all faculty and staff members are held to high standards. The Lincoln Family Community is not perfect, but anyone who has ever stepped foot into the school, knows that the students work hard, are kind, and have pride in their school, families, and community. ALHS currently offers over 17 Advanced Placement courses, and any student that wants to be challenged, can be challenged at ALHS!!!!!

Lincoln High School is a mess. The building is dated and dirty. The quality of the instruction is mediocre at best. Expectations are low, and despite all the encouragement to go to college, most students will not be prepared for college. There is a lot of gang activity in and around this school, and safety is ALWAYS an issue. There are also other distractions/diversions which take away from Lincoln's educational purpose. I have met with a few teachers that were really excellent and actually challenged students to new heights. However, I have also encountered other teachers who could care less. If, as a parent, you want to prepare your child for college, I would encourage you to look elsewhere for a high school.

I was a former student at Lincoln and i think the school could be better mainly because the teachers and staff only care about the good straight a students and they just kick out the students with problems instead of consulting with them and find out why they are doing bad so instead of helping students they just make them go to another school

This school is very bad. Mostly none of the teachers know the studentss and none of te students know what is going on. i think that the students at that school only go to that school to mess around and make problems.!!!!!!!

I very much dislike the school, they have gangs and i don't think the students there are too friendly. Not only is it bad on influences but there tests scores are not so good. I think it maybe a one of the top 3 worst schools ever! If you want your child to be safe and well eduacated then i do not recommend Lincoln High School.

Lincoln is a pretty terrible school. There are lots of gangs in the school and most of the kids don't even care about their grades. This school has very low test scores and is probably one of the worst high schools in DPS. I went out of my way to get out, i wouldn't really recommend it if your searching for a good education.

Like most Denver Public Schools, ALHS has its fair share of teachers who just get through the day. The administration can get wrapped up in competing for the district's funds and attention and forget that the students are individuals, not stereotypes or numbers. That being said, there are some fabulous teachers who will go the extra mile to challenge students who truly seek knowledge. A good education can be had here, but it must be student-driven.
