This school is the best in my opinion because my sister would get bullied and they step in and help most school we have gone to never did anthing so I really like it and the teacher are amazing they care about students succses and they never want anybody to fell less


Posted June 19, 2014

Sadly, I had to move to a different state but my child attended this school grades K-5, and it was AMAZING. I am very unsatisfied with the new school we have ended up in and I am missing Lincoln Elementary. Every teacher my daughter has had always went out of their way to help her and every student, even in overcrowded classes. The kids here at this school are so down to earth and when they say bullying isn't tolerated at their school, they mean it. Do not let the 7/10 score fool you, because this school is definitely a 10/10 and always has been.

My daughter has special needs and has an IEP. The IEP team at the school is great, accommodating and it blows my mind how much time the teachers and staff takes to get to know my child. The school always has events scheduled for the family, and the students are polite and well behaved. I cannot see myself leaving this district. The staff is amazing!

I had two daughters attend Lincoln, one from grades 1-6 and the other K-6. From all aspects of caring for a student and their academic and social interaction, Lincoln is outstanding. The staff is excellent and they reach out to the community. PTA is VERY active, just get plugged in somewhere and you will have a wonderful experience. Our oldest daughter did not attend Lincoln (she went to antoher CCSD 15 school) and while she got excellent academics, the fealing of community was not even close to Lincoln.

Both of children became 99th percentile scoring in the US children while attending Lincoln. It is a very nice school, great neighborhood and great administrators and teachers.

I have 2 children that attend Lincoln. It is a smaller school with a personal touch. They work hard with all levels of learning. My 2nd grade daughter was doing well above average as well as some other children. In order to keep them 'interested' and also give a high level of teaching to the average or bi-lingual pupils, they created an advanced program. My son adapted well into the kindergarten class. He is an average student and they work give him an extra push when he needs it. I've been very happy with this school, programs and the staff. My daughter is diabetic and the nurse has taken great care of her.

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.

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.
