I have two children currently at Lincoln I am extremely happy with the school, teachers and administration. I also have a child in middle school that was well prepared for the expectations of middle school both academically and socially.

Happy with the teachers & curriculum. Although I wish there was ability grouping. We have a neighbor that is a teacher at a local private school that her children attend (my children are in the same grade) they are learning the same stuff. I just substitute my daughter's religion outside of school. Also my nephew goes to another private school in the area, again the same things are being taught. The only thing I wish this school would teach are values - proper greetings when they meet people, respect for others. Kids are missing out on simple things that make them noticed, they need guidance in the area of social structure & collective behavior. I would also love for the school to wear uniforms, so that parents don't have to compete with the trends - not to mention cheaper in the longrun.

part #2..sorry, ran out of room...... I also was talking to other parents from three different districts and was asking about the sight word list. Come to find out that Lincoln K kids are only learns 10 words per grading period (40 words per year) and all other surrounding school kindergarten students are learning over 160 sight words per year. No wonder why the test scores are high, the tests must be lower standards or something. I truly feel bad for these teachers. Every teacher that I have met at Lincoln is wonderful. They are there for the best interest for the kids but they need to have a supportive team behind them to make this school great. I just don't see it and with the way the school board is running things, the teachers will not have it any time soon:( The teachers hands are tied behind their back.!

I absolutely love the school. I moved to the Hanover School District just so my daughter could go to Lincoln. I had always heard positive remarks from other parents. My daughter is doing great and loves her teacher and school. We need to keep the class sizes small. Keep up the good work!!

I can tell you I REALLY loved this school district, within the past 4 years it has went downhill. The 4 stars have nothing to do with the leadership and everything to do with the staff. You may or may not get a phone call back if you have a problem, the classroom sizes are beyond the capacity. My child focus due to the amount of students. I am greatly let down by this corporation. Parents need to speak up! I really hope the new Superintendent can get this in order, not sure.

Lincoln is a superior school and the teachers are excellent. My two children currently attend and both are excelling. I had my choice between Lincoln and private education, and my husband and I definetely made the right choice. It's 'Four Star' school rating does not do it justice! The next school year curriculum is proposed to add add foreign language K-5, a certified art teacher, and the PTO is very involved.

Wonderful curriculum and engaged & caring teachers. Smaller class size means lots of one-on-one available. Lots of activites both in and after school for children to participate. Great ISTEP scores. Parents involved in a positive way.

I would like to say that my son's experience here from K-2 has been impossible to beat. The teachers try to keep all the kids challenged; and though the principals have changed frequently, the leadership has been great. Because it is a smaller school, the staff is freindly and knows just about every parent by name and child. All of the staff is truly concerned with the childrens well-being, both mentally and physically. I would recommend this school to any parent!!
