There is not another school like Lincoln anywhere! I have been impressed from the moment we set foot inside the front door. Dan Schmidt takes his role as principal as a personal mission and his staff follows his lead. We truly feel like our children are important to each and every staff and faculty member they come in contact. This is truly a community school and we can't say enough great things about it. There is a very active PTA, the teachers are fantastic and our children LOVE it here! It is definitely worth looking at if your are in the WBL district.

Lincoln is a small community of friends. Teachers, Principle, administration and parent volunteers all work together to provide the best school/social setting for all of its students. My husband attended Lincoln as have our three children. I highly encourage everyone to come and see how great children excel at this school.

Very good school, we just moved here and I am very impressed by this school and the effort they make to make everyone feel important. They have done an excellent job teaching my children I say this school should be rated about 9. I say that because my children have attended a 9 rated school and It doesn't seem different except that this school is alot more fun.

Lincoln School in White Bear Lake has ALWAYS had a very high standard within their Teaching Staff, and Directors. All of our children, and many Grandchildren have or are attending Lincoln, and it is a wonderful little school! Thank you. Jan Wiberg, resident of White Bear Lake, Mn.
