Lincoln High School has seen some amazing growth and changes. The principal is incredibly dedicated to the student's growth, learning and promotion of a safe atmosphere. I highly reccomend this school
The School District and community has been going through a great amount of change and it has been hard for the community to adjust to the change. Their priority has always been on activities, clubs and vocational classes. It really is not the school they remember - but it is far better because it is preparing our kids for the future that they really face! The district is doing anything they can to include parents and community is it's goal to make their district a place where EVERY student learns. My son has been helped more than any other school he has ever attended and went from being a possible drop-out to being in all college bound classes. The teachers and the administrators work very hard for every student to be successful and they are always looking for parents to help out wherever they can.
None of the information indicated under the extracurricular classes, languages, or other information is correct. My oldest daughter graduated in 2010, and I have a step-son in 9th grade special ed., and my middle daughter was supposed to go in as a freshman next year, but we are moving away from here. I refuse to let my kids go to these schools anymore. No kid left behind means no kid gets a good education either. These kids do not know spelling and/or punctuation, math, or essentially anything else necessary to function in society. Most parents don't care about their kids education or anything else about their kids here. They treat the school as if it was a babysitting service so they don't have to take care of their kids or teach them anything.
Lincoln High School has some of the greatest, underfunded staff, that you could hope to find in the increasingly impoverishing neighborhood of south Warren. However, the majority of the students at LHS lack discipline and motivation, which needs to be corrected not only where they attend school, but by the parents themselves. Therefore, the real importance lies with the parents motivating their children to succeed and not to rely on sending them to a better school system to correct it. (i.e making sure your children are reinforced with the knowledge of the importance of getting an education, and staying away from any detours, such as drugs)
lincoln has such supporting teachers. they really make you feel welcomed and they make sure you understand everything. if all the students work as hard as the teachers Lincoln would be the first if rated out of ten.
i think that Lincolns rate should be a 10 because all the teachers are great and all of the students there are really nice and they are one big family. everyone gets along with everyone from the goths to the jocks.
I graduated from Lincoln in 2006. Because of this school and most of the teachers, I have become who I am today. The attendance policy was great. It was strict, but there are far worse policies and schools. Lincoln's downfall is that the students just dont care. I went back to visit the school, in the spring of 08, and I will say that Lincoln has stepped up the security since I graduated. They now have cameras and things like that. Yeah we had the occasional fight or things like that, but there was never any carving of anything like nazi symbols and such. When a child acts out in school, they are just looking for attention because they do not get it at home. So parents before you criticize the school, look at how much attention you show them and try to help them like most of the teachers do.
Lincoln is a good school it just need some finishing touches and need more teachers and more parents attending conferences and supporting the school's choices...
This school really needs help as far as teacher and student relationship. Drugs, skipping and numerous problems with the office staff that have poor people skills. I could write alot more but ? I belive in praying in stead of saying. But one thing is for sure my child will not attend next year or anyone that I come in contact with that ask me, my opinion about Lincoln High School. They are creating a mess for Warren M.I.
This school is awful. At Lincolh HS and middle school, you're going to school with the children of unstable, poor adults. Many of the students are unmotivated. The culture of apathy destroys the ambitions of most students. Not only that, but Lincoln HS and middle school are dangerous. There's a general climate of hostility at this school. Bullying is epidemic. When I was at this school, the faculty and administration weren't stopping it. With the culture of apathy and hostility, most serious, bright students don't stand a chance here. The school unfortunately doesn't know how to deal with the often neglected, and sometimes abused children of unstable, poor adults. I encourage you to stay out of this district at all costs.
I gratuated in 2004. Vandyke publice schools are and have been for quite some time, in a bad condition. No educational value to students. No concern for the welfare students. Much racial tension as well. Big drug and violence problem. Not enough books for students, but plenty of athletic funding.
LHS attendance policy that is way to strict on the child . Teachers who quality of teaching and attitudes towards children is under rated.
I graduated from Lincoln in 06. It wasn't the best school, but It was most definitely not as bad as most of you are making it out to be. I loved most of my teachers. My only problem was the art program. There isn't nearly enough variety. All of the classes were the same. The attendance polocy is good. It teaches kids how it's going to be in the real world. I almost always felt safe, too.
Overall I think Lincoln is an ok school. Yeah Lincoln has its ups and downs but I think its the students who give it all the downs. The teachers try but they can only take so much, they cant force a child to learn if their not willing in any way. The teachers cant be punished for the students ignorance or even the ignorance of their parents. I myself was fed up with a lot of the students and I happen to notice a lot of those students parents didn't care much either. I think that if some students would show a little bit of respect and weren't so immature Lincoln would be a better school!
I graduated from LHS in the early 90's. My step-children go there now. The attendance policy is terrible as described by other parents, it doesn't matter if you have a doctors note or not you get a form letter stating your child has unexcused absences. Some of the classes are out of control the teachers even agree. My step-daughter ask's to go to the library so she can concentrate and work.
People have no idea what they are talking about. Lincoln High School is a great school. The teachers here are the most caring and helping teachers you could ever think of. Not every high school is perfect. -Stephanie
This school district is the worst. It's not only lack of parent involvement it's lack of teacher involvement. If your child is not honor roll or athletic they don't have a chance. No one here will go out on a limb for a child who has problems, or just needs a little encouragement.They would rather expel a child than help one!
Lincoln High School is what it is. My sister and I graduated the same year. She finished in the top 5% of our class I finished in the bottom 5%. She took school seriously I did not. We have the same parents so my point is 'If the kid doesnt want an education nobody can force him to get one. I would like to thank Mr. Yanolaki a math teacher who taught basic math classes to the 'non honor roll' students. His classes were taught in away that was funny and he managed to keep most of our attention. Because of him and a little disciple I picked up in the USMC, I have not earned less than 100k in the last six years. Thanks again Mr. Yanolaki.
I love my old school. I love my city. If it wasn't for the experiences I had, rather it be involving cops, drugs, or social independence, I must say that my old school made me who I am today. A hard-working and very motivated person. My name is Jacob Lay, and I have great city and school pride! GO LHS!!
LHS has not impressed in any way. It has been the biggest dissappointment. Attendance policy that ruins a child . Teachers who quality of teaching and attitudes towards children is under rated by 1 question in a 5 question survey.I believe this forum should be opened to a wider range ,where parent can give their expreinces with the school. Something that teachers could look at and see their mistakes through the eyes of a child...
