My stepson attends Lincoln and it is one of the worst in the city. Some kids (such as my stepson) cut classes on a regular basis skip entire days act up in class don't do their assignments and the school does NOTHING unless the parent raises h$&* up there and THEN they may actually dole out a mediocre consequence. Their main excuse is that the school is "just too big." It's more like the people in charge simply do not care. It's a shame because it was remodeled and looks nice but the "powers that be" should be replaced with people who truly care and have excellent organizational skills. Kids love it though b/c they can do whatever they want and not get penalized for their actions. Parents (the ones who care anyway) do not love it so much. DO NOT send your child here if you can help it.
