Lincoln school has the best teachers in the district. They take the time needed to work with each student which fosters learning.

Lincoln school teachers, administrators and staff are fantastic. Before my two girls started at Lincoln, I was told it was the best school in the district and after 7yrs, I would have to agree. The classrooms are small, parents are always involved and let's not forget how clean Lincoln is; thanks to Mr. Jones our costodian and his staff.

A lot has changed with this school in the last two years, so it's unfortunate that the school is dinged for the "previous lame duck" administration. The teachers are amazing, and the new principal is energetic and in my opinion, making all the right moves. The class sizes are perfect, and I've been very impressed with the programs overall. Great work, all!

Lincoln is a very small family oriented school. Participation in school events is always high! The teachers and staff are caring, fun and truly know how to allow students to reach their full potential. Lincoln has an open door policy. We, as parents, are always invited to stop by and check on our children. Not many schools allow that. Lincoln Rules!

The education your child receives is acceptable and in some grades excellent, but there are many issues with the teachers and administration at this school. They don't want much parent involvement and the principal doesn't take action when he should. I'm not sure who runs this school him or the teachers

Excellent school with a very high standard of quality. Only negative is that the Talented and Gifted Program is much too exclusive, 5 out of 20-22 children are invited.

I find the class sizes to be small. 2nd grade has less than 20 students per class. The principal seems to like his job. The 1/2 day program is to develope social skills only. The children are hit hard in first grade, with a full day, homework and academic requirements. Thankfully the first grade teachers are responsive and encouraging. The resource room teachers are excellent.

I seriously believe the school system needs to look into the overall class size. There are too many students to a teacher. I don't feel the teachers are putting their all into the education of our children. I also never see any teachers giving after school help to the children. Where are your hearts? Are you there for our children or just for the paid benefits? I feel no one wants to put any effort into the children anymore. The Board of Ed is to blame. They need to find new offices so our kids can have Harrison School back.

warning to Parents of Caldwell if you plan on sending your kid to Lincoln school for your childs sake find another option. If you don't you will regret it.
