    I went to this school in the Lyceum (advanced magnet) program during years 2011-2014 and I found it very disappointing. Most of the teachers were good (like the math teachers) but especially for science some of them were terrible. My parents were not connected with what was going on in the program at all. Because of the degree of separation between the magnet program and the mainstream program I found that some of the students were very mean. In total if you want to go to a good program but also undergo some seriously high stress and upset from all different factors then this is the program for you.

    My son likes going to school he likes his teacher and his classmates and believe me this is a great way to start the day! I would like to see the teachers get more money for what they do and see the schools get more money for the children after all they can go to school for 18 hours a day but it's what they learn and who teaches them that counts.

    Have had multiple bad experiences that have not been handled appropriately by administration thus we are changing schools.

    We had out child at Lincoln Middle School for only 1 semester. After 2 weeks of being there he was begging us to attend another middle school. He would tell us about the endless number of fights each day during lunch. He is a middle of the road kid and because of that he was around all of this behavior. I believe if your child is in the gifted programs they might be segregated from a lot of the 'bad' behavior. I do have to say hats off to the teachers there. They were amazing and we contacted them a number of times about our son. It is not the teachers or the administration... It is the kids which is a reflection of the parents.

    My son is in Lincoln Middle School and I hjave been happy with him there. They seem to run a tight ship which is important for a Middle School! The Administrator for each grade moves up each year the students move up so the administrator knows the children very well. I think this is a plus. My son is in gifted and he gets a great higher level of academics.

    The magnet system is very good. The separation of students allows for less disruption between grades. The 'majors' offered allow students to pick a choice of their interests.

    Through our experience at Lincoln all of the emphasis and help seems to be only on the 6th grade and sadly wanes as the child progresses into 7th and 8th where the team leaders and some teachers in the medical program particularly are more inclined to shuffle parent inquiries around and redirect them to a website that is rarely updated with any current information regarding upcoming events. Children are inadequately prepared for FCAT as indicated by the recent crises affecting Manatee County and alarmingly low FCAT scores www.bradenton.com further the recent implementation and elimination of a choir program leaving children with only a choice of band or orchestra without so much as any explanation to parents and student affected. HOSA/FFA are only available if your child elects to participate in the Enviormental program and are fee-based. Palmetto police are always present to break up fights and drugs seized

    Lincoln Middle School is a great school. My children are getting a quality education by caring teachers learning to use top of the line technology exposure to diverstiy and are participating in various extra curricular activities like Student Council FFA HOSA and more. I am very pleased with our experience at Lincoln.

    We found the entire staff helpful and available to ease our fears of moving from Elementary to Middle School. 6th Grade Medical teachers were an inspiration and kept our daughter challenged providing an enjoyable learning experience. Staff members I had the pleasure to interact with handled issues efficiently courteously and satisfactorily. We are looking forward to 7th grade with gusto!
