Lincoln Jr High School1

The principal needs some xanax! He is so over the top! The 6th grade teachers need a break because they obviously can not handle more than a few students at a time. If your child just does not catch on quickly they will tell you your child is lazy.
My daughter flourished at this school. The teachers take the time to instruct to all levels of learning rather than pigeon hole kids into one way to learn. The PI teachers are amazing. The office staff is great.
I am a new parent of Lincoln Jr. High, I so far have found the ways of their academic programs seems to be working, but I do believe they are behind in the grade levels, I also think they should have more selection of classes to offer. It seems that the kids have no choice. They do have music and many extracurricular activities available before and after school, that it a big plus for kids that want to get involved in sports. I did go to a parent meeting, and only the board was there and myself. I don't know if there is much involvement, they seem to have fundraiser, but, there is also a lot of things you have to pay for up front. Being a public school, I thought that was all provided for, except the students school supplies and lunches. The communication is great.
The quality of students and parent involvement was very good. However, I felt that the teachers at Lincoln were uninspired. The healthy test scores do not reflect the quality of the teachers. The school is very institutional and therefore was not inclined to help my gifted but organizationally challenged child.
