My children attended this school several years ago. It was the time of change with a new building and a new principal. Unfortunately, the principal was a huge disappointment. He made several changes to the extra ciricular programs that had a drastric negitive effect on the higher acheiving students. The assistant principal was completely useless. Bullying was a huge problem. Note: both the pricipal and vice-principal have left the school for the 2012-2013 school year. When my children attended there was a moderately strong parent organization. It now only has a few parents, none are willing to take a leadership role and deal with the administration.

I was student at LMS. Lincoln is a really nice school but has a lot of bullying problems and the teachers and administration don't do anything about it. My three years at Lincoln were the worst years of my life because of the bullying. The school is very nice for the vocal and band students. The school has an award winning Show Choir.

My 3 children went to this school.The oldest went to the older school, which was HORRIBLE. The new school improved but I have to say that they STILL have issues and I am SO glad that my kids are done with them. Not all the teachers are responsive, although some were, even though I was very involved.The worst school years of my kids lives. The principal was very engaged but the assistant principal was useless.Very unresponsive and not helpful at all, and it didn't help that MOST of the kids totally hate her, which goes to show how much she connects with them.

Being a student at this school i can tell you from a good understanding about it. One main probelem is the disaplin. Its terrible. Other students run a muck and dont even get introuble. Most of the teachers here are not certified for two subjects. If i had the option to chang schools I would do it in an instant

I learn so much every day and am motivated to do more by my teachers. The teachers here are so great. They give their all and make you feel comftorble.There are so many things to do after school or in school. Like band, dinner theater, and countless sports teams to join. There is also a REACH program that we do here. You can do anything from learn how to be a babysitter to have hands on experiences with aquatic life to making costumes for a play in REACH. The possibilities here are endless.
