Lincoln offers the opportunity for an outstanding public school education, very much on par with what my (Ivy League) college peers got at expensive private schools. I had a few less-than-stellar teachers, but most were average to great. The administration is fantastic about letting students tailor a gifted/talented curriculum to their own needs as long as everything is planned well and properly defended ahead of time (which some students are capable of and some are not, so this can be a mixed blessing).
Being a student at Lincoln I would know what occurs in the school more than the average parent. I feel completely at home at Lincoln and although the students can be harsh towards each other, the teachers are great. Each person has their own individual teaching style. Lincoln is a very close knit school and everyone gets along to a certain extent. I would recommend when considering a school in Manitowoc that this be the High School to attend.
