We are very unsatified with the principal at this school; he has been very disrespectful to us and our child.On two occasions calling us 3 days later to handle a disciplanary issue that should have been dealt with the same day.And when asked why he did not deal with them right away he had excuses.We asked the principal questions about what had happened (my child pushed another,which I agree was not acceptable,the principal asked us if we were trying to justify our childs behavior,almost sticking up for the other child(ren).My childs grades exceed in every subject except spelling which the school enrolled my child in a special spelling course which they never notified us about, and then when my child ripped up his spelling test because he was dissatisfied about the grade that he had recieved the principal removed him from the class because he was being disrespectful to the teacher and would not aplogize to her, which is not in the best interest of the child what so ever.My child started saying statements like"i don't wanna go to school"or"i don't like school anymore".He has only been at this school for one year and it will be his last.However the teacher was very helpful.

We have loved Lincoln! The teachers have been amazing. The principal is amazing. And the communication with the parents has been wonderful. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to be part of their child's learning process. In addition, the PTO is incredible!

From my experiences with this school, I would never recommend it. Most of the home room teachers were great! However other staff members at the school, and the principal himself, were disrespectful towards my child and me on numerous occasions. Instead of the principal "guiding students to become the best they can be", I found him discouraging my child & lowering my child's self esteem frequently. During my chlid's time there, grades were poor, participation in class was poor, attitude towards school, friends and life was poor. I have since placed my child in a new school, and am more than pleased to see my child excited about school, having spectacular grades, and being an overall happier child in life! Bittersweet.

This school is lucky to have a principal who cares about guiding all students to become the best they can be no matter what their personal challenges might be.

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.
