Abraham Lincoln High School4

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.!!!!!!!
