Wonderful school with great teachers! I am proud to have been part of a very active PTA that provides support and funding to our kids. Small class sizes, serving a diverse population. Can't say enough good things about Lincoln!

Lincoln school is filled with outstanding teachers and staff who provide a nurturing learning environment to all. The principal is easily approachable and works hard to improve the school. Staff have implemented create ways to reward and encourage positive behavior. Some teachers have little shops located within the classroom where children can earn/save fake money in order to purchase little trinkets or, if they choose, save for bigger items. This was especially motivating for my son! The PTA is very dedicated and many of the members put in a great deal of time to plan events and fundraise for the school. In terms of improvement, I think the district needs to work on raising the overall test scores.

Firstly, the school is beautiful. When you walk in you are immediately surrounded by children's artwork and projects. The cafeteria features quilts made by the children that are just awesome. Going deeper, the staff the of the school is wonderful. We have always had a positive experience with teachers and other staff. They all really care about the kids. I am always struck by all of the smiles the teachers have when they are walking throughout the buildings. We feel like we are part of a family. Whether a child is above average or not, they recognize the individual needs. The small class sizes of the lower grades cannot be beat.

Lincoln is by far the nicest school in the Cudahy district. They have the best teachers, 4k Ms. Snyder is awesome, she loves the kids and treats them wonderfully! The PTA is extremely involved, they arranged and organize many activities for the kids and families. The school has many programs to get the kids involved not only in school but in community as well. The 'safety cadets' make sure that children walking to and from school can do so safely. It's a really nice school. They've made many improvements over the years to help the kids have a better environment to learn in!

Lincoln school has always supported a very active PTA. Parents play a very important part in a child's success at school, teachers cannot do it alone. A school that recognizes that and supports the child AND the parents does the best job of educating our young people. My children got a great start at Lincoln.

Lincoln School is the best! Parents, teachers, and staff work together to provide a rich, nuturing learning environment. Parent involvement is important at Lincoln. Our PTA sponsors a Harvest Dinner Dance, Family Fun Night, Donuts with day, Muffins with Mom, and Lunch at Shool just to name a few. A Positive Behavior Program rewards students who display appropriate school behavior. Monthly rewards are shared by qualifing students. Spirit Days include: Pajama Day, Tropical Day, Patriotic Day, and Crazy Hat and Hair Day. There is something for everyone at Lincoln School!

My sons first and last year at Lincoln Elementary. The main office is very rude every time i needed a question. I am a single father who is very concerned with my child and his education. Both of my sons will not be going to this school.

Lincoln Elementary School in Cudahy, WI. is what every parent longs for in regards to student educational standards and personal achievements. They maintain an open and honest relationship with parents and guardians while encouraging young minds to excel in whatever direction the student choose. Bravo! Teachers and Staff of Lincoln Elementary School of Cudahy, WI.


Posted June 14, 2005

The teachers at Lincoln exceed any child or parent's expectations; they love to teach and they teach because they love our children. I couldn't be happier. My children will learn to love school because their teachers invest their absolute best effort into each and every day. Furthermore, my children will be well-educated and respectful citizens of our community, as a direct result of the examples set by their teachers. In addition, parental involvement at Lincoln surpasses anything I have ever witnessed before, and I, myself, have witnessed much as a long-term substitute teacher in a large, urban school district adjacent to Cudahy. I am both incredibly impressed and extremely pleased with the principal and teachers. Lincoln Elementary is a fine choice for my precious children.

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.
