I love this school. They have a wonderful iep program and my child is getting more regular class time then in the other school. she is now at level with the rest of her peers. Iam very happy with the outcome of her progress at lincoln. Its a family environment and i feel so welcome by staff when i go in with my child. the teachers make sure to have one on one time with the children and to have constant contact with parents about their children. This is my childs first year at lincoln and the staff already know my name and not because my child gets into trouble. they make sure to know each parent. wonderful school. they have a 90% graduation rate. That is about 50% more then the other public schools in mount vernon.

Every single grade in this school gives kids candy and sometimes soda WITH CAFFEINE for rewards. I have been fighting with the teachers and principal of this school for three, going on four years now about it and no one will listen or change. This year I will be making my kid's teachers sign a note that says they will not give my children any food of any kind. It's ridiculous!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
