I graduated in 1994. This school is a joke. Lucky me I escaped that town and state. I feel sorry for students who attend any public or private school in that town. Kids google is your friend. You will need to teach yourself how to properly speak and write. It took me years to undo what that town and school system did to me.

this school is horrible I wouldnt advise anyone to attend this school I went here the year 2010 worst experience ever I was told by a teacher/coach that it would be best for me to basically fail and get into the so called early graduation and that happened to me and the teacher/coach left for a head coach job and I found myself with no diploma but hey GED as they say good enough diploma is better than nothing..

I feel that LCHS has some serious work to do. Academics are in serious disrepair. Though there are some great teachers, they just aren't supported by administration of ex-football coaches. It's a running joke among students that it really doesn't matter what you put on your class selection sheet. It WILL be wrong. and you will NOT be able to take the elective classes you want if you are in any honors classes at all. They brag about all the STEM classes they have; this is a complete joke. They have a drafting class that they call CAD and while they do offer calculus, it is not AP. The only AP class they offer is English 12. They brag about their STEM oriented robotics team. Well, even though it requires thousands of dollars to run effectively, they get $0 from the school and must operate with sub-par equipment bought from harbor freight 10 years ago. The same is true for all the less revered sports teams. The band also receives $0 from the school. However, LCHS does have a shop! Too bad there's no jobs in hand machining! They teach no industrial automation or computer skills at all. This school does not prepare students for college and it definitely doesn't prepare them for life.

I prevously transferred from LCHS to WCHS and by doing this, my academic record dropped a few points. While i was attending LCHS as a sophomore, I learned many things and was welcomed by the teachers, it has a wonderful environment, that I miss dearly. Yes, everyone occasionaly had their little arguements or fights but they did their time out of school for a couple of days. I really miss LCHS because it is the best school that i have EVER attended! -Martika Santiago, WCHS class of '10.

LCHS is one of the best schools their is. I am graduating this year (2009) and I can truthfully say that I have enjoyed my time at LCHS. I am really grateful for all the help that I recieved. I believe LCHS has a good educational atmosphere. I really do like LCHS' Special Education Program. Samantha Fanning Mulberry, TN

A terrific place to work! LCHS is a family of teachers and staff working together to better our community.

I am a 2004 graduate from Lincoln County High. I can honestly say I have never had such a great time in my life. I loved all of my teachers and the whole staff is amazing. Lincoln County High offers many extra curicular courses and they also offer fun clubs and groups, such as Pumpkinheads: which was my favorite. I rank you a 10 out of 10!

LCHS has many caring teachers, good students, and staff, but I feel that LCHS could be better. LCHS is run on a popularity contest, is too soft on unruly students, and needs to work more on it's academics rather than 'Falcon Football'. LCHS is, like I said, a good school, but could use quite a bit of help. LCHS stresses too much on who you are and who you know. Half of the time, unruly students just make promises and they are given chance after chance. The administration needs to crack down on these students and give them something more harsh than two days of suspension. That is exactly what these students want. Last, LCHS is weak in it's academics. I feel so unprepared for the world. I go into these classes, but I come out learning nothing b/c some teachers get caught up in something else besides school.

In response to the other 2 reviews. These students were obviously good students not the at risk ones who really need it. I went to LCHS also and got a well-rounded education,but that was the tachers NOT the principal or the great leadership of the system .Special ed. students don't get the correct testing and names are forged on documents.

I use to be a student at LCHS and the knowledge I recieved has prepared me to go out in the world and make a career for myself. I am now attending phcc in florida and I graduated from LCHS in 2000. The one person I must thank for his great leadership is Principal stewart. In Life you dont meet alot of positive rolemodels that will make sure that your getting the best knowlege out of life and the lessons life teaches. Mr. Stewart is just the best role model I have ever had as well as his devotion to making LCHS a 'I CAN & I WILL' school. The teaching staff was very well prepared. I see regular high schools here in florida and I am thankful for the abundance of teachers, staff, and the space needed for learning. Thank you so much for your life altering experience.

I attended Lincoln County High School from 1999-2001 and enjoyed it thoroughly. I thought the teaching staff was well prepared and deeply concerned for the well being of the students. I am currently attending college, with the goal of teaching myself. Needless to say I think that, in part, should be credited to the teachers at LCHS who had a major influence on my life. I believe that it would be challenging to find a school which not only prepares a student for the next educational level, but does so while truly operating like a big family. Many of the teachers as well as upper administration really get to know the students and treat them as having value, not just a means to an end.
