Lincoln Elementary is a wonderful school. Their teachers are well trained and attend regular meetings and workshops to improve their skills. They are very in touch with the childrens needs in the community. They have many programs to offer help and support for students and their families. However I feel there are some areas that need improving. Parent/ Teacher involvement is one area. Teachers at Lincoln need for parents to be actively involved in their childs education. Lincolns staff is very friendly and supportive to it's students as well as thier families. They offer family events every year in which parents can participate in activities with their children. They take their role as educators very seriously. However I feel they spend a little too much time in meetings. Lincoln offers afterschool care as well as remediational tutoring to it's students if needed. Linda Bass is a wonderful principal who takes her role to a new level. She reaches out to students and families to let them know they are not alone. I currently have 2 children enrolled at this school and look forward to each new year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
