I have 3 girls that go to Linwood and would not want them to go to another school. The teachers are great and are awsome with the kids. They teach them to respect the teachers as well as each other. I moved into the district just so they could stay in the school.

I recently went to an IEP for my son. Everyone in the IEP had nothing but good words to say and there was not any talk of a behavior plan like in his previous school. I really like all the people involved with him, the counselor, his teacher his reading teacher and his speech therapist. The principle even said he could not believe this was the child that his previous school warned about. Not only is my child learning but he has a wonderful support team, that all seem to be on the same page instead of trying different things, they are consistent. My favorite is that his teacher sends home a packet of school work for him each Monday so he knows what he has to get done each week by Friday. Thanks to everyone at Lincoln. Belinda Kelley
