This is one of the best schools i've had a privilage of having my child attend. They have excellent teachers, a wonderful principal who care a great deal about all the students and employees. The academics are some of the best in the state of Oklahoma. It's truly sad my child will not be attending Lincoln this year. We are a military family and our time at Fort Sill has come to and end. My child attended pre-k and kindergarten at Lincoln. She really enjoyed every lesson and academic programs. However, if you any parent is here in Lawton, I highly recommend you try to get into this school district. They offer a great deal of parent envolvment, however, a lot of parents are unaware that they can participate in classroom activities, if cleared by the office.

This is the one of the best schools that I have been at. We are a military family and we have been to many schools. The staff has the highest expectations for the students and they hold each and every student accountable for their actions. Responsiblity is taught starting in Kindergarten. My only wish is that my older kids would have experienced Lincoln Elementary!!!

As an educator working in the Lawton Public School District, I am very proud to work under a Principal whose high expectations prove to be the foundation for our success. Every colleague is willing to go above and beyond to meet the educational needs of all students. As a team, we work to uphold the highest standards not only for our student's successes, but also for ourselves. I would encourage everyone to drop by for a visit to see first hand how our family is growing in both achievement and community.

This school's test scores are second in the entire district. The teachers are great! They believe in the basics of teaching reading and math. They have two computer labs. The principal believes in strong discipline and the school has a great 'community' feel.

Math is the best at this school. Reading is not this schools strong point. Sports at this school is better than others but it needs help too. There is about 15% parent involvement. Not too bad I have 3 kids at 2 diffrent schools and there is 0 parent involvement at the other school. This is one of the safest schools in Lawton you cant even see your kid without a office pass. First time picking up your kid before school is out. Please have your I.D.. All doors are locked after 9 am so you must go through the gym where there is always someone willing to help you find the office.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, grades 5 and 8 in science and writing, grade 5 in social studies, grade 7 in geography, and grade 8 in U.S. history and government. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
