There is great communication between the school and parents. This school offers a lot of opportunities for students and families to get involved outside of the classroom. My child is a minority in the school, but has been welcomed and has made a lot of new friends. We are very pleased with Lincoln!

My daughter went to this school K-3 and I have to say it was an overall great school. The teachers seemed to be envolved and my daughter always enjoyed going. She did have an incident with being bullied in 1st grade but it was quickly resolved and taken care of by the principle.

We moved to the area recently and could not be more impressed with the school. Our child has some special needs and we felt the teachers, principals and social workers were very responsive. They immediately implemented some accomodations set up by our previous school, and then took the time to do a full evaluation, and recommend other ways they could help our child be successful. There was a wide spectrum of ways they can support without stigmatizing - they also adjusted that help regularly as our child's needs changed slightly with new material being presented in class. They also initiated a meeting in the spring with the middle school special ed teachers and social workers, to plan how best to transition. We would highly recommend Lincoln!

My daughter has been attending this school for 3 years now. Her teachers are very dedicated. My daughter had been on the advance programs for 2 years but was saddened when it wasn't available for her and the rest of the kids who are advancing on math and reading last year. But, this year Lincoln will have it in place again and my daughter is so excited to know about this. The staff are wonderful and very friendly. I salute to this school on how they handle racial diversity.

My 2 sons attended Lincoln for 4 years before moving out of state this year. There are some truly dedicated and passionate staff members at this school; some are not as experienced as in other districts, but this is a plus as they are fresh and friendlier and more receptive to providing extra challenges or help when needed (not burned out). The differentiation within the classrooms is amazing, as the teachers nurture those who need extra help (& provide additional outside help when needed), yet provide challenging enrichment opportunities for those who are ahead. My 3rd grader is missing this aspect as he attends an extremely highly rated school now (10 of 10), yet he feels bored in class. Excellent music & art programs. The racial diversity is an excellent aspect as well- this provides unique opportunities for real life lessons of acceptance & respect. Excellent school.

This school use to be a great elementary school, however with the new principal it is now an unfriendly place. My kids have felt the change as well. We are planning to change schools. Very sad because we use to love Lincoln!

My children have been attending Lincoln for the past 3 years. This last year has been such a disappointment with the new principal in place. The atmosphere at the school has become quite unfriendly. My children are getting frustrated with the lack of enthusiasm from the administration and teaching staff. It appears that the staff are lazy when it comes to providing discipline to those children who are not following the rules.

We love Lincoln Elementary! I have 3 children in this school and the education they are receiving is stellar. We have had 5 different teachers over the years and all of them were wonderful. My children enjoy going to school every day and love their teachers.

I really like this school. My son attended 1st and 2nd grade here. The teachers are very involved in their learning but the class sizes are around 30 kids per class right now. Both teachers have given us weekly newsletters to keep parents involved. My son enjoys going to school here. They still have art, music, and gym. I believe there are extracurricular activities, like a science club and reading program but we haven't participated in them. There is also before and after school child care provided by the YMCA. I highly recommend this school!
