    this school teaches my children what proper English they should use and why. they have learned so much from here.

  • (1 year ago)

    I have two children attending this school and I am very pleased with it. They have plenty of programs for the children. The faculty so far has been excellent has had no issues so far.

    This school is mediocre if you live in the district I guess you have no choice but to have your child/ren attend. the administration doesn't have a clue and if your child happens to be one that gets bullied good luck! They have no support for your child at all.

    I am surprised to read all these reviews that are so low. I have two children that attend Lincoln and I believe there are plenty of activities. The special ed department is better than you realize and the teachers actually CARE about these kids. No not a a lot of money but the neighborhood doesn't have much either. Sounds like there is not pleasing some people.

    I had three children to attend Lincoln from 04-06 I was not satisfied with the testing procedures or the Special Needs programs they offered they need to step it up academically and get some staff that is ready and willling to deal with new and different generations. I am going to send 2 of my children back because the school is in the district. They need to offer more after school act. & transportation. they just need a more patient staff who really wants to deal with children & parents.

    I have two children that are attending Lincoln Elementary. I believe that there needs to be more afterschool activities for children in all grades not just a selection. The Special Ed Speech program failed to accomodate my son this school year (2006-2007) and I am awaiting the new year to see how they asssist my child. Overall the school is exceptional but has plenty of room for improvements.

    I agree that the whole district needs to step up it's academic performance. I admit that they have improved slightly but they still need a lot of work. Also they should provide more resources for parents with children who have academic performance disabilities such as ADHD. There are really no guidelines in place that can help parents cope with and resolve this issue.

    The school needs to work on the academics more. On a scale of 1- 10 we are a 2 .This school is on academic probation because of the test scores need to come up more .

  • (9 years ago)

    I believe this could be a great school if the communication is better between the faculty and the parents. It doesn't provide any activities for the children. Now they want to discontinue bus service for small children!
