I heard many negative things about this school. Despite what i heard, I did my own reaearch and later decided to do the lottery for this school. This is my children's first year at Imagine Lincoln. My children have enjoyed the school year. They offer field trips, several different clubs ( band, cheer leading, game club, etc. ) The PTO is very active with the school and together they facilitate many extracurricular activities For the students and families. The staff is friendly and motivated to help each child reach there full potential. There are some children with behavior problems that may cause others to assume negative things about the school. The staff tries really hard to work with and correct the negative behaviors. I feel that those children are a reflection of their parents and the staff should not be held accountable for that.
This school is horrible! Teachers and administration are very unprofessional. They are very unorganized. Not one teacher had a syllabus and could barely advise the students' agenda. They direct traffic in head scarves. The teachers yell down hallways at each other. They take much longer than normal to find your child for pick up. I've was even told that I could go find him myself. I sat in class and the students did 1 math problem in an hour. The kids are out of control. This school is a joke and a waste of money.
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.
