    I personally go to North Lincoln Middle School and I'll be graduating this June after three years at NLMS. Quite honestly after all the time spent here I can say I absolutely hate this school. The teachers are decent and the curriculum is taught in an understandable way but the students and things like buses lunch and how problems are handled... Well it's awful. Buses are WAY overcrowded (which results in lots of issues) lunches are terrible (we have had green hamburgers/hotdogs and it all tastes like cardboard) and the principles/administrators resort to sending students to ALC(basically In School Suspension) or just out of the room which takes away learning time. To anyone who is looking at going to this school don't believe the hype. The cons definitely out way the pros. This school is not anywhere near as good as it's made out to be.

    My son goes to the 6th grade at NLMS. We are 6 months into the school year and so far so good! No complaints. Seems to be a great school!

    My son has just started at this school and I can say that it has been a wonderful experience. Ms. Hagar and all of the teachers he has really really care about the children.

    NLMS is a great school and my daughter loves it there she is a 6th grader and looking forward to the 7th grade wonderful school

    The teachers really care about the children and go out of their way to make sure they succeed. My son had a very successful 6th grade yr thanks impart to his wonderful teachers. I can not say enough about Mr Lowe the band instructor he has been wonderful with my son who has ADHD very patience but firm with a sincere concern for his succcess. His current 7th grade teachers have also been very involued want to see him do well and go out of their to make sure he is. The after-school program aka Action club is a great way to make sure they finish HW and get the extra help they may need.

    Lincoln County Schools in general is a breath of fresh air in the Charlotte Area. They plan for growth without taxing the citizens to death. PCMS has only about 5 mobile class rooms and a new Middle school is opening next year in the fall of 2007. The quality of education is on par with the best of the Southeast Charlotte Schools but they are much smaller and the children get the individual attention. The school is also able to offer advanced courses to get the students ready for AP and Honors courses in High School. PCMS offers Band art and all major sports. Parent involvement is very good for a middle school.

    I wouldn't change a thing with our school. It is a great place for children to get a great education and have a faculity that really cares.
