We love Lincoln Park!!! I am overwhelmed by the level of engagement, energy and excitement for learning that the teaching staff provides to students and the positive atmosphere. The academic pace is fast and creative. Best of all, it is a place that allows children to be themselves, to celebrate their gifts, and to mix their love of the arts with a first-class educational experience. As a parent, I could not be happier!

I attend this school and it is amazing! Every day is fun, the teachers make our classes interesting, the academics are challenging, the arts curriculum is phenomenal. . . AND the other students are so nice and always support each other. I love my school!!!

This school spends an enormous amount of taxpayer money on a few students and is allowed to pick and choose who they want at the school using completely subjective criteria with no accountability and no published criteria.

My daughter is graduating this Saturday from Lincoln Park and we are both very sad over this. She has attended Lincoln Park for the past three years and it has been a life changing and rewarding experience for her. She would put in another three years if she could and the friendships she has made there, with both teachers and students, are priceless. She went from a student who was depressed, not interested in school anymore, grades were failing, and feeling like she wasn't part of anything - to a student who couldn't wait to go to school each day, was excited and happy, made wonderful friends, became an honor student, learned acting, piano and singing, and participated in many school activities. Thank you to all the teachers and staff for their support and special care of their students. We will never forget all of you!

I an a student at lincoln park and I major in percussion. At first the school has it's ups and downs. But after a month I loved it. I am a freshmen here and it reply isn't much different then a fifth or sixth grader going into jr.high. People treat you nicely because they rare all here cause they love one common thing..there love the arts. I would gretly recomend this school to anyone who loves dance, music, literature, theater, or drawing/painting.

We are two students from Lincoln Park. We adore this school and the opportunities it gives us, from acting classes to media classes. If you are interested in the ARTS then this is the perfect school for you... students and faculty are supporting and original. Facility is great... imagine being excited for monday morning, just to go back to school. That is LPPACS.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
