Lincoln Elementary became a 'School of Distinction' in October 2007. This means it is ranked in the top 5% of all schools in the state of Washington. The school climate is awsome. Staff at lincoln believes and expects each student to reach his/her full potential. The principal, Mr. DeCoteau truly cares for each and every child.

I believe that this school has a long ways to go to meet my satisfaction in all areas. The school has major issues because it focuses too much on what the WASL wants to see without incorporating social studies and/or geography. The science program is week as well. The reading, writing, and math programs are ill organized and executed. Their academic programs have made my children into ignorant under-achievers. There are no art or music program, and health and fitness classes are only held once a week. They have tried to incorporate activities before and after school somewhat. However, I feel that they do not reach out for parent involvement at all. I have my degree in elementary education and I now teach culinary arts for a non-profit organization. I have offered my services to teachers, and have never been called upon for help in two years!

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.
