We love this school!!!!! We have two children in this school and the teachers and other staff are all so helpful. My husband and I became very frustrated with the problems our son is having with his studies. We were called in for a meeting at the school and we are assured that our son will get all the help he needs. Our children have made great progress. The principle and the teachers are really great and our children are so happy!!!

Small enough to focus on the children, but large enough to have plenty of activities. My social butterfly loves making new friends and enjoys going to school.

Small, quiet school with great teachers who are committed to the student's well being. They offer a range of extracirricular activities & their reading program is great! My daughter really enjoyed her 8th grade year here.

I feel that this year we finally had a principal who 'cleaned house' and is working to make this a better school. I also think that with the revision of the math program (getting rid of Trailblazers!)this is a positive direction!

I encountered many problems with Lincoln. Their math curriculum was so difficult that they had workshops to teach parents how to do it to help with homework. Also, they have no teachers who are educated in special reading courses such as Linda Mood Bell or Wilson. Many children have fallen through the cracks. Their discipline strategies are nothing more than a joke to many studets who are repeat offenders.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
