i was a student at this school and I thought it was amazing! I love all the teachers. The only thing I think could this school could improve on is how the staff teaches.


Posted June 15, 2012

If every one is so wonderful in the school, then why the test scores are so low compared to other elementry students. Lincoln test scores are going down every year. Since most experienced teachers retired the test scores are not there any more. We have to do something to change this.
