I've been a parent at this school since 2000. Lincoln is one of the strongest public high schools in the region. The school ranked tops on state assessments and in national rankings, the school surpassed the Johnson County, Kansas, and suburban KCMO high schools. It's wonderfully diverse, has a lot to offer families and gives students an introduction to living in a multicultural society. It's a winner!

The teachers seem to not care about the students. I had a meeting with the Vice Principal about academic probation and he said the teachers would keep in touch if my sons grades started to slip. I only recieved 2 calls during the entire school year about my son's progress and the second one was just to suggest I transfer him to a different school in the middle of the semester.

This is a wonderful school in my opinion. I am a 9th grader at LCPA and have been going to Lincoln since 6th grade and i am proud to say that i go to Lincoln College Prep Academy. The one down fall to Lincoln is its very uneventful, you basically are going through the motions until you graduate. I do wish there were more fun ways to learn but that's with all schools. One plus is it is very diverse many different races and people go to this school, yet its not segregated in any way. Like every school there are cliques and the "mean girls" but bullying is disciplined very well (even though it seems every year we get a new administration due to KCMSD). If your in the KCMSD Lincoln is a great choice for your child.

Good to see the "old castle on the hill", is rated so highly. A 9 out of 10 speaks for itself. This school is the beacon light for the district. As an graduate of the school back in the mid 90's, I am proud. I now, am seeking similar results for elementary schools for my children.

I have a child who graduated in '07 and a child who is now a sophomore at the school. While not pefect, this school does prepare children for college and life. The diversity, the strong performance on MO MAP test, the stellar band, Robotics, Latin and Debate make this a school worth checking out.

My son is a junior this year. I also so have a son who graduated in 06 from here. This school is definetly not the school it used to be. Principals changed too many times and the teachers too, No college prep certified teachers in the class room. Counselors are not as good as they used to be either. TheY don't seem to care.

This school is alright. It's not perfect, but it's not terrible. It's better than most schools in the KCMSD (Kansas City Missouri School District) because of its history, extracurriculars, and higher requirements for graduation. It offers a nice IB and AP dual credit program for those who want to try and enter college as a sophomore, because I know many of the school in the district don't really have anything like that. But, some troublemakers tend to slip in through the cracks a little too often and teachers and security aren't really doing anything about it. Our principals have changed every year I've been here (4 years- I'm a senior), and the rules have changed too often to have definite structure. Such is an inner city high school.
