Lincoln K-8 Choice Elementary School1

If you have a child who is academically advanced and perfectly behaved, this school is great. They advertise this as a school that caters to multiple learning styles. In reality, they are a STEM school. Nothing wrong with that, but not what they make themselves out to be. If your child has special needs, I can not recommend this school. They are very inflexible.
I believe this school is educating children in a progressive way. The philosophy focuses on trying to meet individual needs while learning how to work as a community. The emphasis on building self-esteem and empowering them as learners through different experiences such as productions, technology, and fine arts has had a lasting impact on our children. I am so grateful that they have had the experiences that Lincoln's family: staff, students, and parents has had to offer.
We love Lincoln at Mann. Time and time again I am reminded that our kids matter. Principal Vollmuth has gone above and beyond to help my kids-from bus situations to broken glasses and playground situations. We love the yearly class productions, the individualized learning, the parent involvement, but most importantly the value placed on each child. Lincoln is a fabulous school!
Lincoln was our favorite school ever. We made a ton of friends and also learned so much during our time there. The teachers at Lincoln were the best and every day was great. We also loved recess time and the football games that we always played. Everybody was involved in the school including parents and all the kids. Overall, it was a great experience! -Maddy Snyder and Dan Gannon
We love Licoln K-8 Choice School. Small class room sizes with mixed age groups in most classrooms provide a very strong academic setting. Self esteem of the individual child as well as multiple intelligence strategies are used along with emphasis on technology, art, and music. It is a small school of 350 students, with exceptional parental involvement. Licoln is one of four elementary choice school options in the Rochester district. Families from all over rochester apply and are accepted into the school. There is a wide range of academic and sociaoeconomic levels within the school. It brings nice diversity to the school. The teachers and staff at Lincoln also choose to be there at this setting. They are not asigned to a school by the district.
