    Lincoln is a wonderful school. We love how inviting and welcoming every staff member is. Our girls have had exceptional teachers at every grade level. The school is managed very well. Academic achievement is top priority as is school safety. There is a strong sense of "school family" here. The parent council is very active as well. There are frequent activities for students and families. Lincoln is great!

    Me my sister and brother went to this school. My Daughter decided that she wanted to go to this school on her own. i let her make alot of decisions like the extra caricular activities that she attends are all by her choice. she is doing wonderfuly in my old school better then i ever did there. and the other comment i saw back in 05 where they gave the school a 4 well i give the school a 10 star. they have alot of extra activities you just have to read the hand outs that come home. every school gets the same ones. i like this old school and my daughter loves it. my son will go here too.

    Great teachers principal and school. Both of my kids loved going to school there. It is a small town with people who care about each other and their kids.

    The staff at Lincoln Elementary is so friendly. I attended Lincoln for 5 years and I loved it. I loved the activities they provided the teachers were great and the playgrounds have improved. Lincoln is definitely comfortable to be in and has a great environment.
