The teachers at Lincoln are wonderful. They provide many resources to students and are on top of assessing needs. As a parent who keeps in regular contact with the teachers we have established the areas my children need improvement and outlined a plan to help achieve those goals.

Lincoln Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers are second to none and really take time to engage students and find out more about them as individuals. Being new to the district this year I had some trepidation, but this school has come through with flying colors!

I agree with many of the negative reviews of the support and education they provide children with special needs. Their program and the support they provide the children is minimal at best. I feel as if my child has been passed off year after year and is trying to function with minimal skills and tools. The special needs program needs a complete overhaul. You would be better off enrolling your child in neighboring slinger schools or even home schooling. Special needs education is an absolute joke at Lincoln, don't be fooled like I was. My child has suffered because of it.

This school has great teachers and caring staff. They do a good job assessing individuals and diagnosing children in need. They have done a good job with our daughter who has had challenges unlike most children in the district. There has been some needs but they have alwasy been open to suggestions or requests and sought out more info from professionals in our daughters life. They have always been supportive and seem to always have my daughter's best interest at heart.

Man-o-man. Just looking at a google map and all the sudden negative reviews are thrown at us. We've been more than happy with this school. Our three daughters remain intact and well-educated.

I agree with alot of other parents with children with disabilites, this district [seem] very poorly trained,[i feel] most of the teachers in the special ed program are not the best out there. I would not reccomend this school if you have a IEP

This school is fine if your child is of average or above average IQ. Parental Communication from teachers and administration is sorely lacking. Academic programs are average. No extra curricular activities. PTO is average, not really interested unless own children are affected.
—Submitted by a parent

Lacking in many areas. Academics are very poor for disabled children and gifted children as well as any councel given. You need to be your own advocate. There are no music programs or other extracurricular activites. The PTA is average.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
