    this city school is one of the better elementary schools in the district. very nice understanding teaching staff. great support. they really care and it shows. the building is always clean and very tidy. the playground is litter free and graffitti free and the neighborhood watch is very closely involved. an all around community effort keeps this school running on all cylinders.

    I was very nervous about sending my children to a City school when we first started in K at Lincoln. I have been completely satisfied with the school; teachers other students parents principal you name it! We have been there for 3 years and I really have no complaints. I feel like my children are getting a quality education I am very impressed!

    This year we have enjoyed a very active music teacher who has formed a chorus. The PTA has sponsored read across america day book fairs & book swaps and incentives for character building as well as hosted monthly family fun nights! Due to the hard work of teachers this year we will also sponsor the school's first ever Spring Carnival!

I fill like alot of the other parernts that they involve children services to much.In that school they call too offten. the teachers some are great and some shouldnt be teacher. their is no good fillings about this school.
