This is an amazing school! Being a gradyate of Lincoln Middle, I believe they have amply prepared me for high school and for life outside of school. The teachers are very caring and push the students to do their best. In the 2012-2014 school years, Lincoln had a student elected Jr. Beta Club president for Tennessee. Overall, Lincoln is a superb place for your children to attend school. I LOVE LHMS!!! GO PATRIOTS!!!!

This is the worst school I've ever been to the teachers are very hateful and stuck up I wouldn't recommend sending your child there


Posted July 17, 2013

i go to this school and I must say it is the worst school I have ever been to!! The lunch is unbearable, there are no doors to the class rooms, students are a bad influence on any child! I would not recommend anyone going to this school!

I think this web page needs a calender for events, deadlines,school outings and such.It would be very handy for parents to keep up with school events.

I don't agree with my piers (as in other students) it's a fair school. The discipline is fair if you are a troublemaker not as fair

I think that Lincoln Middle is a very good school.My son loved that school, anytime I had a concern about grades the teachers were always willing to help with what ever they could.

My daughter before she went to this school was making d's and f's on her report card. Now my daughter is on the straight A honor roll. My daughter loves this school I don't know about the other parent but the teachers do work with the children. They have always been willing to go out of there way to help my daughter. They are willing to meet with the parents and communicate with you at any time.

i think they should lighten up anf focus more on education than on discipline.
