I am a 2010 graduate from Lincoln high and i attended there for two years. to be honest this school has so much potential, the teachers are passionate in teaching and they know their material. the only thing that contradicts that is the students who lack the enthusiasm of learning and of course not all of the students. There are bright and talented students here. just because there is 'violence, and bad kids" in the does not meant that the entire school is. Another thing if the TAKS test was gone i believe this school would have higher ratings, future students would love to attend the school for the fist time. THE PARENTS WOULD BE MORE INVOLVED. the stats of test scores will be higher and every student should have an opportunity to enroll into the the humanities and communications magnet (which is an excellent program for the ones interested in journalism)t. bottom line i am proud to graduate from this historical magnet high school. GO TIGERS!!
im a former student. and i know that lincoln is a great school. it may not look like it in your eyes but you have to be there to see and hear what really goes on with school and the district behind closed doors. the reason why most of the student are not attending school is because of the TAKS test. this test does not help anybody neither get the student prepared for the real world. taks is always taught during class every single day. not only the students hate it but the teachers hate it too. because they know that it will not help the students when they graduate from school. i took that test 3 times and i finally passed it 1 mth before my graduation. it was hard and very stressful. students dont time to prepare for their SAT OR ACT because of the TAKS test!
no homework, not enough help for the sudent and care... no parent relations.... no syudent focus... but taks focus... bottom line line , just a job for these teachers, not real teachers for students... kids needs real help and is not getting it
I went to this school a couple of years ago. It is nowhere near good. The teachers are practically useless. The dropout rate is too high and there is a drug front right in front of the school. The TAKS test requires sixty percent of the overall test to pass; the school is unable to even get sixty out of one hundred percent right, children fail constantly and there is too much violence. I would not send my children to this school.
This school only has a handful of good teachers, I think if there was an overall of teachers and especially the principal the school would improve. And yes some parents are involved but clearly not enough. There needs to be a change from the Schoolboard down.
I found that this school along with its teachers are much higher rated than it deserved. There was not enough responsibility for accountability of students actual presence in class and too much unreported truancy. There was not a great presence for higher learning environment. Finally, the SAT scores and ACT scores for college for these students do not show adequate academic preparation.
