Imagine Lincoln is a pillar for change. The new administration that has come to our school has created a culture and environment for success. They were given years of problems from teachers to students, and has risen to the challenge and succeeded in creating a positive environment for learning. I give Imagine Lincoln an above average rating because we've made great strides that can't be measured, but still have room for improvement.

One of the worse schools in the DC metro area Fights on you tube, over crowded class rooms. I will say some teachers are great but most don't care. I would not recommend that anyone sends there child to this school.

My child is in the seventh grade and I would not recommend sending a child to this school. They are not doing any work in some classes and teachers are absent alot. Alot of parents are not happy and they have long term subs as teachers.

I am very disappointed about Lincoln Public Charter School. Despite it moving into a new school facility, it is the same business. Despite the assistant principal doing her best to change the school, the principal fails to promote a solid, positive school environment. There are great teachers working hear but their voices are rarely heard. Despite the potential the school has it fails to remove certain students and people who hinder the academic progress. Thus, the school poor reputation overshadows the increase gains in math. This is why if I could I would rate this school with no stars.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
