Lincoln Park Elementary School5

My son went here for pre-k and we absolutely loved his teacher Mrs. Franklin! I was so scared when he first started because I had heard terrible things over the years. I'm so happy I gave it a chance. The school is a lot different than previous years. Before my son started they were restaffed and now only teach pre-k through third grade. His teacher was caring and always kept me up to date on his progress. She went above and beyond and my son bonded with her well. Even now that he is no longer in her class she still contacts me to see how he is doing. Awesome experience for our family for sure!
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.
