kid went here then was pulled after 4 month from the vpk program. This was about 3 years ago so things could have changed.. hahahah,, no no they haven't.. The school is threaten to be closed for the past 10 years now. bad area, unsavory children and ignorant from staff. really big on that " does the teacher know you were coming" but states that there is a open door policy.. so what is really going on in the classrooms??

Students are out of control and teachers are uneducated and complacent. Moreover, there is very little or no intervention to stem bullying practices at the lowest level, which leaves the children's offenses to become more brazen. Rather than enact preventative measures, they blame the victim.

I am a worker at Lincoln Park Elementary and this is one of the best staffs I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We strive really hard to make sure that the children have a good quality education with the resources that we are given. Rest in Peace Ms. Ford

I did my student teaching at Lincoln Park and I also did some substituting throughout Escambia County; I thought that Lincoln Park was one of the worst schools Ive been in. The academics were weak and the children were unruly.

My child has been attending Lincoln Park since she started Pre-K. They do have a Pre-K program for 4 year olds. The Pre-K students attend school the entire day like all other students. You will have to call the school to see if they will accept 3 year olds in their Pre-K Program. They have in the past. They do not have many extracurricular activities. Only PE as far as sports is concerned. They do however, have a music teacher and art teacher with their own rooms to be able to provide more resources for the children. The level of parent involvement is very high. The school encourages parents as well as other members of the family, to take part in their kid's academic career by have reading sessions for parents to attend for all grades. They also invites parents on field trips, to help with the school carnival, eat lunch with kids.

After having four children attend Lincoln Park, I can say that parents have always been encouraged by the staff to be involved in the education of their children. Lincoln Park has undergone renovation that has enhanced the school tremendously. There were never any problems with race relations and all the chldren seemed to treat each other fairly and were treated by the staff equally, as well. A great start for our children came from here and we now have 2 college graduates and the other two are still working on their college educations. Four out of four success stories in this family started at Lincoln Park.

About the tests

In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
