Teachers are great, principal is clueless. There are a lot of typcial and common school-age issues among the kids in my child's grade (bullying, lying, hitting, even racism, etc) but it doesn't get handled properly. There doesn't seem to be any consequences or even a general feel from the school that they truly care about your child's well being. At this point I don't feel like my child is listened to much less safe anymore.

My daughter is entering her secons year at Lincoln, she is, racially, mostly African American. Amongst her peers, she has encountered bullying, and exclusion due to heavy racism. (Ignorance) this is primarily amongst students, and parents of such. Proceed with caution!!!

Enthusiastic teachers, array of support services, and involved parents.

I have two girls at lincoln and i will tell you that the teachers are second to none as is the administration. My children previously attended a catholic school and although the environment was fine it was not worth the cost of tuition. Lincoln is the place to be!

In the seven years my daughter has been a student at Lincoln (K-4 -- 5th Grade), I have never been less than pleased. The staff of Lincoln structures the learning in such a way that it is fast-paced, yet comprehensible to provide our children with the most valuable learning tools. In times of changing the teaching methods to newly adapted ideas, we parents were even invited to attend 'classes' to learn the way our children are learning in the classroom in order to better assist them at home. I have been extremely pleased with my choice of sending my daughter to Lincoln Elementary.

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.
