One of the reasons I moved to Ridgefield Park was because of the schools here. Both my children go to Lincoln and absolutely love it!! I love how family oriented, supportive, and caring the staff are. Like any school, there is not a PERFECT school out there, but I can say this is close to it! Music program is great, sports are great, teachers and parents really come together and do whatever it takes to make the school a great place experience for my children!

We live in a very small town, but I believe this is what keeps our school knitted so tightly together. We, as parents, want everything for 'OUR' CHILDREN especially in the early years of learning. We always go the EXTRA MILE to see that the children of Lincoln School are tops in no matter what they are involved in. Whether it be the daily school routine or an extra activity for the entire school, The Lincoln School Lions family is there for OUR CHILDREN!!!!!!!

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
