    Lincoln school is great great teachers and other people who works there. My daughter learned English language within 6 months . I give A++ for this school.

    I had two daughters attend Lincoln one from grades 1-6 and the other K-6. From all aspects of caring for a student and their academic and social interaction Lincoln is outstanding. The staff is excellent and they reach out to the community. PTA is VERY active just get plugged in somewhere and you will have a wonderful experience. Our oldest daughter did not attend Lincoln (she went to antoher CCSD 15 school) and while she got excellent academics the fealing of community was not even close to Lincoln.

    Both of children became 99th percentile scoring in the US children while attending Lincoln. It is a very nice school great neighborhood and great administrators and teachers.

    I have 2 children that attend Lincoln. It is a smaller school with a personal touch. They work hard with all levels of learning. My 2nd grade daughter was doing well above average as well as some other children. In order to keep them 'interested' and also give a high level of teaching to the average or bi-lingual pupils they created an advanced program. My son adapted well into the kindergarten class. He is an average student and they work give him an extra push when he needs it. I've been very happy with this school programs and the staff. My daughter is diabetic and the nurse has taken great care of her.
