My son goes to Lincoln Hancock and based on my experience this is a very nice school. Teachers are great. They are experienced, considerate, competent and above everything else willing to do their best for the kids. My son's kindergarten teacher (last year) paid specific attention to all kids and she helped them individually with all their challenges...she'd give personal feedback to parents almost everyday to help parents in helping their kids...My son would talk about his teacher all the time and he keeps requesting us to send his little sister to same class/same school when she starts school...

LH teachers/staffs seem very nice and experience, and they are very hopefull. However, somehow the students don't seem to do well. We can look at the last year MCAS result, it was very low. Maybe something wrong with the teaching materials or the way the school setup. For example, there is no walls, no doors and BIG open windows, these would disturb the students while they're in classes. It is a hard learning environment. I hope that they can improve the environment.

Ive only been here a year and understand fully why this school is rated Like it is. This school has horrible teaching staff that don't display any type Of intelligence. They lack in challenging the students in work appropriate Material they request tons of money in which they need to use to To hire well trained, children friendly teachers who COMMUNICATE with the parents for the prosperity of these children.. From the teachers to The admin team this school i recommend for no child and needs to be Shut down and reconstructed. Aside from things mentioned this school Resembles a high school not a childlike look or setting, the hallways are freezing the secretaries are RUDE ... Overall the worst elemantary school for various resonings. If u want a future for your child DONT send them here.. IM MOVING ASAP !!!! This site is basically making me give stars I would give negative 5 stars... Sorry but it's the truth

I moved from a town that had really great school rateings and was a little nervous about my child starting Lincold Hancock. It is a big school compared to where my child was going and in a bigger city. I must say I am very happy with this school. The principle is awesome and very involved. my childs teacher is super and keeps parents very involved in the childrens work, behavior etc. They are always doing different fun projects, plays, rallys etc, GREAT SCHOOL. A+++++++

This school has gone to the dogs. My son did great at a private school for pre-school, and since transferring schools its been all down hill. He hates going there. Today at school one of his fellow class mates sucker punched him. I am trying everything to get him into a different school. The bus basically picks him up right out front but I would rather walk him 2 miles then send him back there. Avoid this school at ALL COSTS.

Great school. They treat the children as if they are their own. Their love and patience shows how much they enjoy being there. Teaching for them is not only their job, but it's their passion.

It is the second home to my second grader Luis. I feel safe and secure sending him there everyday. The teachers and staff are reat at doing what they are doing. With lots of patience, dedication and passion towards their students eduction, it is no wonder that year after year, my son always says his teachers are his second mom and shows great enthusiasm in learning.

I love Lincoln Hancock School because they offer so much to my children. If they are falling behind they offer programs to help them catch up and if they are ahead they make sure they always have a challenge. They care about the whole child, family and all.

I have had a great experience at LH. While it's not in an affluent area, it's not the worst part of quincy either. I have found the students to be great, but most of the of the parents leave much to be desired. I continue to be surprised by the lack of participation from the parents. However, the staff is fantastic!! My daughter went from not being able to read at the beginning of the year (we had moved from another town and a learning disability went un-noticed), to reading almost completely independantly by Christmas-I consider that a huge acheivment. All of the teachers care a lot ablut the students, even the ones not in thier classroom, and it is a true learning envirorment.

I attended Lincoln Hancock for 4 years. I thought that it had a GREAT staff, but it's leadership lacking. Most of the parents don't care, but the ones that do, do everything. Over all I had a wonderful tine. Lincoln Hancock Pride!

i love this school I think it's an awsome school. They have dedicated teachers! I was impressed with their citizens of the month program. What a huge incentive for the kids. The unbelievable respect for eachother and teachers due to this goal they reach every month. They get to play bingo and games at lunch. I would definately recommend this school! Who cares about the area it's the teachers not the area! Don't jusdge a book by it's cover! It's they same cirriculum in Quincy!

this is a great school, for education purposes, but the neighborhood is not very good. a lot of the kids are not behaved. your child will get a fine education here, though.

Lincoln Hancock School is a weird setup of a school with no walls. It is a hard learning environment. I don't reccomend this school but I had fun learning and learned alot about myself from this school.
