My children had a great experience at the middle school! We moved into the district and considered sending our kids to one of the charter schools but we are so glad that we decided on LMS. The education is excellent, the teachers are outstanding, and the district as a whole has a great sense of community. We are huge fans of Lincoln!!

we started 6th grade at a charter school because we'd heard negative things about the middle school. however, we've moved our daughter to 7th at lms and are finding it to be a great experience for her. the teachers are involved, the curriculum is challenging and the building is organized. there's typical middle school behaviors, some swearing, minimal fights etc. as a social worker, I'm realistic. my daughter indicates she is happy here. I love that the teachers send weekly updates and are very, very good at communicating with us. no teaching to the test either. parental involvement is also key to keeping the school from becoming a rowdy and frightening place for middle schoolers.

My son's experience grades 6-8 have been wonderful. The teachers are wonderful and the student body is well maintained. My son has advanced in many areas. He has not missed one day of school since starting in the 6th grade. He loves it. I feel safe sending him there and the staff have always been willing to address any concerns I may have regarding my sons progress. The school is very good about sending out emails weekly letting you know about upcoming events and well as calling with the same info. I always feel up to date. PowerSchool is a great tool and I am always able to keep up on my sons progress.We love it at Lincoln Middle school.

this school is not good. no sense of community between teachers and parents. their IEP process sucks. I have never had a teacher grade papers during an IEP but at Lincoln you will. not a good school for special needs the teachers are not willing to help at all. would not recommend

My son is a 6th grader at LMS and loves it! I was worried about sending him there because I had heard negative things about the school. None of it was true. The teachers have been top notch and my son is thriving there. Don't listen to all of the negativity!

I think the school is fine it is the leadership here the vice princical targets children that she doe's not want there. She documents false paperwork to get rid of the child and threathens staff members to keep their jobs safe

I am so glad to have my daughter in this school, the teachers are second to none. I have even had phone calls from a teacher trying to find out some of my daughters interest to help make learning more interesting for her. When we first moved here, my wife didn't know how to get to the school, the guidance counsler offered to drive to our house and let her follow her back to the school. I never imagined that teachers and counslers could care so much & take such interest, I am glad to be shown they can. From my experiences so far, this school is second to none.

I rate this school because I hate the kids and teachers there. Too much homework! Don't waste your time here.

My son just started the Middle school and I already love it. He is involved in clubs and activities already. His teachers are very nice. His homeroom teacher even called my home to give me a good update without my having asked her. We loved Brick and So far it holds true in Lincoln Middle School as well. They have new white touch boards in the class rooms giving a technical boost to learning, in addiction to the computer labs and library. The school itself is very clean and well organized. It is reminiscent of what you expect in a high school I am very pleased.

We have two kids at Lincoln Middle School. It is not a friendly building for parents and there is not much of a sense of community. The building itself is very clean and nice. The library is very nice. We need a lot more after school clubs for the kids. Too many of them are gertting into trouble. The teachers are pretty good but they don't seem willing to do much after school. No complaints about bus or lunch.

LMS has many good things going for them. If your child is a good student they should do well. If your child has behavior problems they are given to many chances in my opinion. Discipline is not consistent. The bus service is not bad but in need of better administration.

My son is only half way through his first year at LMS but we are very satisifed so far. He is in honor classes and maintaining an A grade point. The teachers seem to be very involved with the students education. My son's core team has set up a great web page to help parents keep up with school assignments and communicate with the teachers. If he ever stays home sick he emails them and they email right back all missed assignments that day. My only complaint is not a lot of communication about after school/ sport actvities. The principal seems very hands on and tough! The bus system is the worst and the biggest draw back for any Lincoln School.

I am a parent of 2 Lincoln Middle School children. There are some wonderful educators at Lincoln who seem to do a super job with the kids. The principle is very safety oriented, involved, and by far one of the best I have ever met. The building itself is by far the cleanest and nicest in the area. The only real fallbacks for Lincoln is the over crowded classrooms. (the teachers seem to deal with it pretty well though) Avg. size seems to be mid 20s plus. The other fallback is the limited number of advanced classes available to students requiring them. One other area of concern are the crowded buses and the level of acting up the kids to get away with - I don't think the drivers can much deal with the issues if they can't pinpoint who is causing the problems. Overall a super school, and awsome staff.

As a parent I have been very pleased with the education my son has received at Lincoln Middle School. We also had our daughter graduate from Lincoln Consolidated and have been very happy with the dedication seen by the teachers who are very active in our childrens education.
