Lincoln has a strong, dedicated staff who go above and beyond the call of duty to assure that every Lincoln child is successful. Students are generally very happy to be at Lincoln and prefer to stay at Lincoln when they move to new neighborhoods or towns. The current principal is fantastic with kids, parents, and teachers alike. If your emphasis is reading and math, it's a great place to send your child. Kids also have art, music, and p.e. for a minimum of one hour weekly. Lincoln is a safe, loving 'home away from home' for its students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. 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.
