    Lincoln Elementary is one of the best staffed schools in Fargo. The teachers are dedicated friendly and professional. We moved to have our children attend this school. The diversity in the school is a positive influence on our children. Manix Zepeda is an outstanding administrator who is caring friendly and professional. He puts the needs and welfare of all students first.

    A good school with a new principal who is very focused on educating kids and not outside activities that add no value to the classroom or academic outcomes. Smaller class sizes and a very active PTA provide the needed enrichment activitiess for kids and families. The school has a large staff of special needs ESL and other special teachers to help the many kids who need extra assistance to learn and achieve. Good art and music program too.

    The teachers and staff at Lincoln are wonderful. There is a variety of students and so the school faces challenges however the school is staffed with award winning support staff that are able to give attention to those in need so the classroom teachers can concentrate on the classroom. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the community of teachers they are connected and organized they support one another from grade to grade. I love the 4/5 grade looping classrooms. My children have thrived at Lincoln. The principal Mr. K is friendly and involved. Don't be swayed by the low score.Lincoln is a great school.

    Great School Great Teachers Wonderful Office Staff. Leadership of the prinicipal isn't very good but she is visible and known to the students. It's a wonderful neighborhood school! The teachers are progressive in their approach to education and really emphasis each individual students strengths. The School offers wonderful extra-curricular activities. Class size could be better with an average of approximately 21-22 students per class. Overall both of my children have loved there years at Lincoln School.
