This is a horrible school. I had my daughter in kindergarden there with one teacher and had to switch her to another class because all they did was watch movies all day. Then her new teacher didn't like me and kept harrasing me by calling CPS all the time with no valid reasons. Even CPS told me that they didn't believe the story that she said really happened but that still goes on my record that a case was opened. She has called twice in a month and a half. My daughter deserves better than a teacher who wants to destroy our lives just because of her personal feelings about me. She even told CPS that I am addicted to perscription medication I only met her once....what would even give her that idea? Its all just personal feelings and she doesn't realize the danger she is putting my child in by making these false acusations. Or maybe she does realize and just doesn't care. If she spent half that energy on teaching my daughter things would be good. The staff in the office are nice and when I first met them I thought I would like the school but this experience has made me hate the school so much that I am moving just to get a new home school! Ugh! Don't send your child to lincoln!

I actually switched from Carter- to Lincoln and was SOOOOOO happy I did-- I could careless about the API scores -- take the time and meet the Teachers and the Staff and you will understand every single one cares about YOUR kid. My kids scores went up after coming here and Teachers that understood she was just Bored at Carter and needed a more challenging environment. So happy I wish more Schools cared as much as this one does. Thank you Lincoln School Staff.
The teachers really care and go the distance to make sure every child in their class gets as much personal attention as needed.
This school has come a long way... when my son entered kindergarten in 2002 the reputation was pretty low and this was not considered a good school. Since then with the help of the then new principal Ms Esmeralda it has become one of the best of the area it is now a distinguished school since 2006 and has received other awards as well such as the 'green school environmental award' and my son was part in 2006 of a class of 3rd graders who traveled to the White House to receive form the President of the United States the EPA award the youngest kids ever since its creation. The teachers are dedicated and knowledgeable which is not everywhere since California ranks number 47 out of 50 states for most educated states. The new principal Mrs Gardner is continuing the tradition.Excellent !
Lincoln is a great school. Thanks to that school my daughter met the president
Hello!!! I thought this was about Lincoln ele. Someone metioned Carter please get the schools straight. Washington Carter are the best ele. schools in the desert except private ex.(Marywood) Lincoln does not measure up for the APIs. If you are moving here get on the wating list for Washington Charter or plan to go to Palm Desert Middle or Palm Desert High. Although Desert Sands Unified Schools are all pretty good. Good Luck!
This is my daughter 3th year attending the school I have no complaints its a great school for any child to attend. I am for wearing uniforms make it easy and save me money.
At first this school is simply standard but if you take the time meet the principal and staff you find much more. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of teachers and the sincere interest Mrs. Esmeralda (principal) showed for the school. They have a great competetive math and science teams. The only drawback is the mandatory school uniform and current construction.
Good dedicated teachers. School requires uniforms--good discipline. Active Parent group. Extra curricular programs offered after school.
Carter has consistently scored over 800 on the state test for the last four years. Great staff and administration excellent librarian!
