The bullying at this school is horrendous. Teachers did nothing to help my daughter, who was a new student. She got harrassed constantly at school, and nothing was done nomatter how many times I contacted the teacher. The staff is incredibly rude at the office, and the teachers don't teach well. My daughter now has no interest in school, and her grades dramatically dropped. We took her out of this school, and now she goes online schooling.Parent's beware! The school curriculum here is sub-par at best. It is best to send your student to a private school, charter school, or an online school.

Due to moving into a new house my kids were sent to this school for the 07-08 school year. My experiance with this school has not been great. My son now has no interest in school, I have offered at least 3 times to help out in his classroom for class parties field trips and always told 'we don't need help' office staff are rude, I have gone in to visit my kids and feel like I am a bother. Going to have lunch with them was awful, not enough room if I go to sit another kid loses his/her seat, and the lunch ladies act like its a huge bother to have to ring up a parent. Another thing is having to check my kids for head lice cause of the school!!! Looking into private school or something better!!!

I think Lincoln School is an excellent school because the people at the school know how to handle the kids and that is just so impressive.
