the school is cheap. it needs more money improvement plus the parents dont get as involved with the school its like a daycare. the lunches have milks that are exspired. my child comes from school saying that she didnt eat lunch because its nasty . i even went to the school and they dont have substitute lunch not even a salad. im starting to think that lincoln will be my kids new school this year. plus the racism in the school the white kids barely interact with the black kids. i would not agree with your child going to this school.

My children go this to school. I found that the teachers are very uninterested in the welfare of the children. The school is full of fighting child and I have looked into home school. The staff was also a great disappointment. The other local school charge a few for transfer.. This is a nightmare

This was my 10 year old daughter's first year at this school and she did an excellent job, thanks to the assistance of her teacher Jane Librizzi. My daughter came from a private school in Chicago and made a good transistion and even was recommended by her teacher for The Center for the Gifted Summer Program. This school rocks and I love the 0 tolerance on behavior. Keep up the good work. P.S. I was very leary about pulling my kid out of Private School, but boy am a happy I did and my daughter begged me to never take her out of this school.

I was very pleased so far with this school. After coming from the Junior High, it was a delight not hearing students yelling and running through the hallways.

The school is very good when it comes to student behavior. I am a substitute teacher and when I come in I am always giving a lesson plan and I am teaching and not baby sitting the classes. I amazes me how well the students behave when substitutes come. The halls are very quiet and overall the school is extremely clean.

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.
