Lincoln Middle School is average. They don't give enough homework and they need to really have more challenging programs for advanced learners. My child used to be very motivated to learn. My child was also challenged a lot by teachers to do more in the past but since coming to Lincoln that has died a bit. I hope they are giving more challenging tasks to those students who excel. I also believe they should give more homework. My child got all A's and B's and barely had any home work all year! I think they should challenge the students more to do more and not just the minimum to pass.

I love this school since Mr.Zarco took over. He keeps parents informed and i know that he loves the kids and would do anything for the. My daughter is ADD and has always struggled in school. Mr. Zarco talks to her not at her. So she really looks up to him and goes to him for anything. I think when teacher take time out to talk with the kids and push them to do their best. I feel a part of the school cause the principle cares enough to make changes that make u a part of the school....

My daughter was always a motivated learner she loved leraning, good student, good grades. Since she enter this school, her grades are not as good as they use too. She has become lazy at studying and in her 3 years that she has been in this schoo,l I have seen more reporcards than homework. I don't understand why the teachers are not giving out homework, why is my child not being motivated to learn? Why do they have such an irresponsible teacher (Goldman) who cares more about being popular with the kids than actually teaching.

I graduated class of '09, and I'll admit, I had my problems at Lincoln, be it grades or behavior, but all in all it was a beyond amazing school. I learned so much educationally and about myself. The teachers are great and so are the clubs. Class of '09 rules! Thank you, and goodbye.

The teachers in the school really care about the students. There are many barriers to communication and involving the community. The school does it's best and offers many opportunities for students both in and out of school.

Lincoln middle school is a great school they would say it is 1 of the best but they do need to work on the discipline and punishments for students and kick out all the gang members which are few.

I went to this school since 6th grade and to me it was an excellent school. Overall depending on the student's behavior the teacher's respect for students was well. This school is the best and I miss it...

Lincoln Middle is a great school for students to attend. The only problem is they need more staircases because when you're walking to class they can get pretty crowded but other than that i think its a great place to send ur children . The teachers are great including Mrs. Crook, Ms. Goldman, Mrs.Burton, Ms. Cline, and many others.

I sent my gold honor roll son to this school for the first time last year and was very dissapointed. They have a growing gang problem and continuing over crowding problem as well. The teachers have an overall very low regard for the students and treat many of them with little to no respect. The principle has many years of experience and is very professional. However, she seems to back the teachers. The teachers seem to have a very low morale, as do the students. This school needs a very serious overhaul.

I think that the school's academic programs are doing great. I also think that there should be more extracurricular activities involving music and art. They should have a club where students can learn a musical instrument, besides band. Sort of like a rock thing where they could learn the drums or guitar or something. I would love that. I think the sports teams are good enough. I dont think parents are invovled as much as they should be though. There needs to be MUCH more of that.

My daughter attended Linclon Middle School for 7th grade. I was very unhappy with the lack of Academic programs offered. Linclon also needs to work on the growing gang problem within their school. The staff is unwilling to cooperate with parents so there is very little parent involvement. Overall Lincoln needs changes - chages that will better its students and not its staff.

I just went back to Lincoln for the first time in 7 years. Graduated from Lincoln back in 1998. I must say that its still a great school. Very spacious and still has some great teachers there. Some teachers that were there when I was there are still there. Mr. Kwit is still there. He has been teaching for 25 years. Great teacher he is.

This school was a great community of children and teachers when I attended in 1998-2001. I felt safe, and I felt that the English dept. was the best out of all depts. I did have issues with the Math dept., however, though in particular Mrs. Crook and Miss Jacobsma were lovely. As with many schools, Lincoln is not perfect, but I thoughroughly enjoyed my years at this school and felt that it was stong in most areas, though some more funding would be nice.
