My child started in district 81 in 4th grade after attending Chicago public schools. In Chicago she was labeled special ed, put into an all inclusive Special Ed class. When she started at Washington, she was at a first grade level in reading and math. The schools both Washington and Lincoln mainstreamed her into regular classrooms. By the time she was graduating 8th grade, she had been removed from special education, was invited into the IMSA Fusion program for Math and Science, had been on the honor roll for 4 years straight, received an Educational Academic Achievement award from the White House and tested and was placed into all AP and Honors classes in high school. Schools don't get any better then that, except when you add on all the arts and music programs and after school activities, they do!
i like this school. i just think the teachers should pay more attention to the smarter kids, challenging them to do more difficult things. this school is very easy for me, the teachers are okay, but i would definateley like a more challenging curriculum
My daughter with learning disability gets the help she needs for proper developement -attends chorus (high quality) -teachers are concerned about proper student's behavior and happiness. -my daughter gets great help from well-qualified teachers
Don't judge our school based on one unhappy parent who left a very slanderous comment. This school has made great strides to correct the errors of the past. We have improved our test scores and now rank 2nd among the public schools that feed into our high school district. There is a negative image of Lincoln that no longer reflects the truth.
