Very helpful when it comes to being able to talk to the counselors bout the things that are bothering you. It is very hard at times though for students to feel comfortable to ask the teachers for their work. Some kids really aren't ready for it.

We bought our home because it was in the Lincoln district and it has proven to be a great move.

This school has wonderful teachers that really stretch the students yet they still maintain a level of respectful friendship. Also, the extracurricular activities could not be better and the amazing school spirit that flows throughout the school cannot be avoided. Lincoln's strive for excellence is apparent through every department and aspect of the school. I could not have asked for a more diverse, academically challenging, and simply amazing high school experience.

I believe that this school is really great! I was a former student and I must say that the teachers and staff do a great job! The academic programs are designed around student abilities and those who need extra help have no problem getting it! Extracurricular activities are great for student and parent involvement. I recommend this school to all soon to be freshmen and more.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math. The Dakota STEP is standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
