    This school has excellent teachers and challenging academic programs. If you have an exceptional child you want them to have an exceptional education and A.L. provided that for our son. We sent open enrolled him from a suburban district because their academic programs did not offer the challenge required for him.

    The opportunity for a great education is here for those that want it. I have 3 children that have graduated from AL one is in top management in hospitality industry one is senior in architectural engineering program in college and one is education major in college. All graduated with college credits earned at ALHS in the AP and HES programs. All you have to do is work for it.

    I am sad to say I am very disappointed with this school. My son has lagging in school work and we didn't find out until report cards came out. Many of the teachers and the administrative staff (excepting the principal) see to lack concern in their students. I do hope this improves.

    I am a student at Abraham Lincoln. I think that Abraham Lincoln has many opportunities that other schools don't have! It is my first year attending this school and I am definitely not displeased. I have awesome friends and my teachers push to keep me at the level they know I am capable of!It's Great.
