Great school. Have attended band concerts, Grandparents breakfast last year, attend cross country and track meets. My grandaughter is a 7th grade student at Lincoln and is doing very well.
Great school. Both of our children have grown and thrived in the environment at Lincoln. From the quality of teaching to the amount of extra curricular activities available, this school is a great place to learn and grow.
I personally go to school there. Overall it is a good school. Also, why should you give such bad reviews about this school parents? Like the person below me said, teenagers don't like getting much help from their parents, and the teachers really do help you prepare for the real world. Like the person below me said, 'They aren't there to baby you, they are there to help kids become self reliant, hard working individuals.' I totally agree with this. This school IS tough, but it's only helping you prepare for the real world.
i've been attending the school for 3 years and i love it. three of the best years of my life. very few parents get involved, news flash here, most kids don't WANT their parents to be involved. thats something that everyone has to go through, breaking away from their parents. i have only had maybe 2 unsatisfactory teachers and that's only because they used different teaching styles than i was used to. they aren't there to baby you, they are there to help kids become self relient, hard working induviduals. i feel prepared for high school, but i will miss lincoln.
I agree, most of the teachers at this school are more concerned with getting to the end of their day rather than how they can help your child learn. My son has ADHD and a CAPS disorder. No one knew what a CAPS disorder is or how to help him. I was told time and again by teachers that they had 100+ other students and could not spend the time with him that he needed. We are still in the Edwardsville school district and he is doing much better at the High School where they have been more understanding and have spent the time with him that he needs.
Edwardsville School District 7 is more concerned with constructing expensive school buildings than it is with providing a good education and nurturing environment for the students it serves. School administrators don't seem to care how many children are 'left behind'. Administrators are more concerned with property tax increases, pay raises and their false perception of being an exemplery school.
My son's EMS teachers wouldn't give him any help. He needed just a little, maybe 3 minutes each day for individual help. He did not get it. I went to the principal on numerous occasions and the superintendant of schools. They say each child will be a part of a team, but they excluded him from everything. Kids began treating him as an outsider, and he started feeling like one. I almost had a nervous breakdown while he was at this uncaring school. They failed him at the end of the year. I home schooled him for a year. Now he is in a new school. The new teachers don't understand the transcript from the middle school. At the school before EMS he was an A and B student, and he is once again. EMS did not care about my son. Sad thing is,I couldn't even force them to. EMS=Disappointment.
