    We recently moved to El Paso and both my children attend Lincoln Middle School. At first impressions the staff were very open and interested in getting to know my children. They have been very accommodating and supportive throughout our transition. Their special education has been great and I dont feel that we are targeting against one another. Their "team" approach is felt throughout the meetings and day-to-day interactions. I believe this is because of their terrific principal. Her guidance standards and no non-sense approach is a breath of fresh air as a parent. The children have developed great relationships with their teachers who are not just teaching to achieve high standardize test scores but rather having heartfelt conversations and teaching with sincerity. Art music PE and sports....a great well rounded education that any parent should feel proud about.

    Lincoln Middle school is not a good school. We removed our child after 6 months. The teachers our child had didn't seem to be very well educated. There is not enough supervision on campus kids run wild. We were extremely disappointed with this school. Our family does not recommend this school.

    I think Lincoln needs to make the enviorment more friendly. They need to lighten up on school dress code and let us wear acessories. Also let us have school dances for Halloween Christmas and Valentin's Day. Other than that LMS is pretty good.

    Teacher parent communication failure. Immethodical disciplinary matrix. Hope to change. My son request changing the school to Brown.

    My son has attended Lincoln for three years and has had a great experience. He is in the Humanities program and has had excellent teachers. The band program is excellent and the school offers many other great extracurricular activities.

    The experience that I have had at Lincoln has been wonderful. My teachers are great they care and are understanding. Mr. Knox is the best teacher I have ever had. Plus I have all my friends. Go Warriors!!!

    this school is a joke. It is embarrasing. Their discipline is not consistent and its just basically a very unsatisfactory school in my opinion and i went there.

    I think Lincoln's humanities courses are great to be in and it depends on what classes and teachers you chose that lead you to your personal opinion on your experiences at Lincoln Middle School.

    This is the worst school school our family has ever attended. (We have attended 6 schools.) Administrations is poorly managed without any ethics. I found only one good teacher Mrs. Lawson. A very lazy school.
