    Lincoln Middle School is a terrible school. This is his first year at this school and I am VERY dissatisfied on the treatment towards the children who attend. I have never seen a school run like this. I am appalled that a child who is already struggling in his academics to be suspended from school for forgetting his ID. How is it possible that a child is prevented from learning by a school? In my opinion I do not feel Van Dyke Public schools care about a child's well being or grades. They are only concerned with how many children attend their school for funding. Suspending a child from school who is already struggling is ridiculous. They are setting my child up for failure and they are not concerned with this. He did not hurt anyone he was not violent in any way he didn't put anyone in harms way. He FORGOT his identification!! He is not a menace and he has never been in trouble before for any reason. In addition the bully factor at this school is high. The teachers do not step in to prevent children from being bullied. My daughter attends a high school out of district already due to Lincoln High Schools problems. I am disgusted with Van Dyke school district.

    I went to Lincoln from 2007-2009 for 6th and 7th grade and absolutely hated it there. Not only are there fights and constant bullying but the textbooks are outdated and the curriculum itself is lacking in many areas. Don't get me wrong I had good teachers and some friends but the disciplinary problems are just absolutely out of control and at times it seemed as if the students were running the school. There are teachers that care and try to make an honest attempt at helping the at-risk students while others just don't care at all about them. The principal does not take her job seriously and they should look into replacing her. I would not EVER recommend this school for anybody. Now I am a freshman in a much better school district that is more academically rigorous... which was what I wanted all along.

    August 20 2010 My son went to lincoln Middle School for the 2009/ 2010 school year. It was his first year in middle school. It was also his worst. My son had a rumor spread around about him on the first day he attended. Ever since then he was bullied harassed and threatened almost every single day that he was there. Even though i went to talk to both the assistant principal and principal on numerous occasions nothing much was done about it. My son went from an happy fun to be around student to someone who did not want to go to school at all. I did pull him out of this school and he will be attending in another district. I do not give lincoln middle school any stars. I also tell other parents to think twice before putting there son/ daughter in this school.

    My son began attending LMS 07/08 school year. He enjoyed his time there and is looking forward to 8th grade. They have excellent teachers after school activities sports and much more. Their athletic dept. offers all team sports football basketball track baseball cheer etc...There is an issue with wanna be gangs and fights. If they tighten up security it would be better not that my son feels unsafe there. All in all LMS is great!

    Well the school is not the best. The teachers seem to hold grudges against you. There not vere good at there job. The school is the worst I have ever been to. I'm sorry to say this about my own school but it is.

    I ve had three children attend this school and all of them excelled. I think the teachers there for the most part are trying to accommodate all of the children and meet their needs. I also think that it's high time that some of the parents that profess to be so worried about their child's education take an active role in it. You are your child's first resource when it comes to success.

    My daughter attended this school and the Teachers here are all about favortism. There not there to help the children excel. When you have a problem with anyone (counselers teachers etc.) It takes that many weeks to get an responce and by that time its to late. hopefully the new superintendent will make a diffrence for are childrens sake.

    I went to Lincoln Middle School too. I loved it. Unfortunately now is a different story. My son goes here now. I think that it is nonsense that the 8th graders have to pass the multiplication tables 3 times in 6 minutes in order to proceed to High School. Also if they fail one core class for one semester they fail the whole year. I don't remember school being that way when I went. And that is horrible.

    My daughter attended this school (fortunately only for a short time). She had no books had to share a locker teachers appeared to try to be cool rather than be a positive influence the doors are locked from the inside so you have to bang the heck out of the door in order to get anyones attention even when asked to pick up my sick daughter no one watched for me. I was also disappointed that the children spent more time in the gym than in class. Between class vs. class b-ball games weekly (during class time) and every Wed for an hour she would hang out in the gym and did nothing. It wasn't a PE class just 'hang out' time. No wonder the test scores are so poor. No books and no strict academic curriculum. My daughter can 'hang out' after school!

    I had one child attending this school and all it seemed that the teachers cared about was getting the kids in trouble over the silliest reasons. Grades were hardly recognized. Even though my child didn't get the best grades; nobody really helped him get encouraged to get better. The teachers aren't caring enough in my opinion.

    I had 2 children attending this school in the same year unfortunatly we did not have a good experience both years and for both kids. It seemed to me that the Principals were more interested in the appearance of the football team than the academics of the children.
