Excellent School. I go here and couldn't be happier. Everything has flaws but the staff and students all truly care about eachother and can have fun while learning. Administrators and staff are also making great improvements.
I think as far changes and strong leadership, might work, but it the students like me that need to help put the changes in together, i mean the school and teachers, great but some student don't seem to put the time and effort for work, nor any student wont mature up and do what they are told. I'm a 10'th grader that has 3.0 trying to put these changes in good use, also part- special ed, because of my hard-hearing.
Used to be a good school. Far overcrowded with too many different subcultures that cause a lot of problems. It always seems to be white vs black, mexican vs black, white vs mexican.. Also a lot of the students are on hard drugs. Teachers dont care.
I am so impressed with the changes that are happening at Lincoln Park High School. The new principal, Mr. Dangerfield, has started weekly telephone addresses. The communication and customer service is excellent. I used to be unhappy and fearful that my children were not getting the best education but I no longer believe that. My children's teachers communicate with me frequently. The children seem better behaved as well. Great job! Highly Recommend!
When I first got to the school, on the first day I almost got suspended for their over-strict dress code. All I was wearing was a shirt with the american flag on it.In this school you cannot have any individuality. Because any clothing with any writing or pictures on it will get you suspended. All this school ever does over the PA system is complain about the dresscode and tell people to put their IDs on. As a special ed student here I hear the students constantly make fun of us. I strongly suggest not going here.
I was a former student at lphs. Good school, great teachers and staff, most inportantly great extra ciriculum activites. School was a great turn out for the downriver area.
LPHS is not a bad school at all.Yea theres alot of drama n sumtimes fights but its a highschool people what school isnt like that.We may lack books but we dnt lack the education needed n sum of the kids there dnt care bout there education n doesnt even try so theres no need to blame the school.The teachers are awesome and they do push us to suceed there have been times when i didnt care about school either n i wld start to fail but my teachers all pushed me to do better.. Its not the school thats messed up its some of the ungreatful kids that go there so plz stop bad talkin the school and pay attention to your kids n other students.. The teachers n principals n hall moniters and everyone else who work there are doin their best.Cut them slack n give them a chance!!!
The school has gone down the drain, it used to be free. Now, all the concern is about the IDs, Dress Code, Attendance. More like a prison than a school.
I am a student at LPHS, and I love it here. Everybody's really into the extra activitys and we have alot of school spirit! But, it is true- we spend to much money on the football equipment even though what we really need is new lockers! But overall, I love it here, and all the teachers rock!
i think that lphs has a lot of potential, but i see too much violence, and lack of what we need, stop wasting our money on things we dont need, get us new supplies, books, lockers, desks, etc. get a security system, things we could put to use, not usless things.
This is a great school. I love it here. To all the parents reading this: Maybe you just have one of the bad kids, it's not the teachers fault.
Lincoln Park high School wasn't that bad when I graduated in 2006. People talk about how bad the drug and violence problems are there, i think it's just been blown out of proportion. We did have a few lockdowns, and senior year I hardly remember any fights breaking out. Most of the teachers there are decent teachers and need the respect they deserve. I do think more programs should be geared toward the students who actually care about learning. For example, when I graduated there was one AP class. I know they have added a few more AP classes, but hello? What took so long?! I mean they started Hamilton before they implented the advanced classes! I did get into college but I don't think LPHS fully prepared me for it. I wouldn't blame the teachers but I would blame the lack of funding and the mediocre classes offered.
Lincoln Park is not a bad school. Of course, it has its good kids and its bad kids. Yes some of the classrooms are short on books. But, if you're a good student and willing to learn most teachers there are not just teachers but, actually are friends. I know because I'm a student there. We also produce many great athletes and academics. There will be problems. But, it's high school. What do you expect people?
It is not only the teachers job to teach..it is also up to parents. Both my kids graduated with higher aver to high grades and went on to college & deans list. The oldest was so inspired that she became a teacher. The youngest is in 1st year college for CJ. When there was a problem teachers and administration were always helpful and resolutions were made respectfully from all sides.
Test scores are low and after two years of failing, we just passed AYP in 2006. The school does not have enough books for every class. Also, if there are books, the kids have to share them with other classes and if they want one for homework, they have to borrow it after school or go to the library. LP High School needs to completely revamp the way they are doing things or our kids will continue to fail.
This school is a great disappointment. I enrolled my child thinking that from the outside appearance, and a great welcome from the faculty, that it would be a great school. Not true. My child has went from being an all a student to a D average. Most teachers are too old an not up to date on how school should be taught now. If a kid gets sick an asked for make-up work, it is usually not given and therefore the student fails. I'd think twice about this school.
There are some excellent academic programs, and the band instructor is excellent, running a first-rate program. Music, art, and sports are all available, as well as NHS, Student Council, and several other special program. They also seem do a very good job with V.I. students. Organization is a little lacking, and class offerings are slimmer this year than in the past. Many seniors have holes in their schedule because there simply wasn't a class to give them that wasn't full.
Lincoln Park High Shcool, may not be the very best that public education has to offer, but if you're a good student and work had it can be everything you need. So all these people complain about the drug and violnece problem we supposedly have. Maybe if parents took a more positive role in their kids lives we wouldnt have this problem. No the teachers dont care about the kids who goof off. Why should they? They're there to teach not to baby sit. LPHS is a wonderful school, minus the few kids who should be locked up.
Lincoln Park High School has been doing very poor academicly with it's students, and teachers often don't help nor do students help themselves. Most are busy talking to friends, disrupting classes, ect. ect. and make it difficult for the few there to actually concentrate on the work being handed to them. Both the students and the teachers need to work to make this school better, and until that happens, it will continue to become a poor environment for anyone.
Lincoln Park has gone down in the past years. There is more fighting and drug usage there at the school. Some of the teachers dont care at all and just brush it off. This school is totally getting worse by the day. Now there just letting kids come in so its getting filthy and the kids are now arrogant. The only way to fit in it seems to be bad or to do drugs and drink. If you are thinking about sending your kid there then think twice.
