Lincoln is not a place I wish I had ever sent my children. There is a new principal who is doing good things with the kids- but he needs to make the time for the parents- my husband and I can never talk without being interrupted. I really think and now realize he just blows us both off with alot of excuses and does not realize we are smart enough to figure it out- he really does not want to hear about any problems- and there are many at Lincoln- yes there are problems everywhere but it is bad here. My 1 child is done this year and thats it- many of the teachers are good but he is allowing bad things to go on and does not seem to care- We thought he was really different- don't let it fool you.

I feel that Lincoln is a good school in many ways- You love it and hate it- the teachers for the most part do care- I do feel more effort could be put into field trips- that is the staff. There is bullying , however that you will find everywhere- it what they do with it to help- you have to stay on top of it as the parent-it will happen anywhere. It is a very diverse school and I feel that is a benefit to all kids to learn and experience at a young age- to learn how to get along and understand all cultures.

Our child attends Kindergarten at Lincoln, and we have been pleasantly surprised. We love the small class sizes, the emphasis on literacy and math, and the wonderful staff. Our child has grown leaps and bounds with all the one-on-one attention he gets from his teacher and specialists in the building. The prinicpal and the teacher have been extremely supportive of our child and all the children at Lincoln. If you are considering Lincoln elementary, go and observe and you will be impressed!

Lincoln is one of the worst. i agree that there is a lot of bulling on the playground, and that can only be controled by a carring Staff!!

Lincoln Elementary school has been one of the worst schools my child has attended. My child had transferred from another school and has lost academic skills attending Lincoln rather than gaining. Also, as a concerned parent, I have seen bullying outside in the playground and no one seems to care. My child has also been bullied at school, to the point where he no longer wants to attend school. I can't blame the children but I believe the adults should have control of the situation. The teachers and the staff don't seem to really care. My child used to love school but has lost confidence. Next year my child well definitely attend a different school.

Lincoln is considered the best kept secret in Appleton and I believe it. As a parent and a student teacher at Lincoln Elementary, I have truly enjoyed the school atmosphere. Parents are helpful and encouraged to get involved. The principal genuinely cares about his students, their families, and his staff. Many of the staff go beyond the call of duty for their students. Lincoln has a reading first grant where reading and writing is emphasized in the school. Special concern is given to students at all levels to ensure that No Child gets left behind at Lincoln. There are many different volunteers and staff willing to help students in reading when needed. This truly is a great school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
