I am a student at Lincoln School. I came here in 4th grade. 4th grade was OK. Middle School isn't organized at all. I don't think a teacher would notice if a student walked off campus. After School is terrible. After about 4:30 all/most the teachers have left so it isn't safe. You can pick sports after school. On the bus to soccer kids were flicking my head and the teachers didn't do anything about it. They thought everthing in soccer had to be fair, but they ended up making up a team of just the 8th and 7th graders. The camping trip at the begining of the year was unorganized and I'd got accused of things I didn'y do.

I am a current student at Lincoln School and i love it! While the academics are very challenging the teachers are always availabe if you need them. Furthermore, all the girls are really supportive of eachother, and the sports are excellent. While it is a single sex school, this prevents destractions in the classroom and on the sports a result all the girls are really confident in everything they do, no matter who is around.

I am a current student and find that Lincoln has a wonderful way of promoting academic excellence as well as extracurricular activities. Lincoln'c close attention to the individual student by the teacher is very helpful and reassuring. At Lincoln 100% of graduates go on to college. There are currently 158 students in the entire High School making the student-teacher ratio 7:1 with an average class siz of 10-16 students.

Our daughter attends Lincoln where she has learned to love learning and participating in her own education, while receiving excellent academics and an integrated emphasis upon character development.

School promotes academic excellence while encouraging independent thinking and self discipline. Administrators and staff provide guidance and discipline while promoting respect and self esteem. Excellent education with qualified educators and staff who are very dedicated to the students and families. My daughters have benefited from single sex school and Lincoln has proved itself through its history.

Teachers at Lincoln are approachable & emphasis is placed on the individual student. The curriculum is challenging but there is lots of support for students with various learning styles. It's a caring place where girls grow and become independent thinkers and life long learners.

I went to the high school, and it was the best. They teach far more and in depth than other schools and let the students have the freedom to grow.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
