I also attended this school about 15 years ago. As a child, I was bussed in 45 minutes from the outskirts of town. I moved a lot as a kid, and actually attended a total of 12 schools K-12. Lincoln Elementary was hands down one of the best schools I every went to. Don't let the score fool you. I had incredibly talented teachers and the programs were unmatched with any other until I attended a state math and science school in High School. It was a seriously high quality school.

I went to this school when i was younger and it was the best experience I have had in a school. I am a Sophomore in college.
