    Teachers are great principal is clueless. There are a lot of typcial and common school-age issues among the kids in my child's grade (bullying lying hitting even racism etc) but it doesn't get handled properly. There doesn't seem to be any consequences or even a general feel from the school that they truly care about your child's well being. At this point I don't feel like my child is listened to much less safe anymore.

    My daughter is entering her secons year at Lincoln she is racially mostly African American. Amongst her peers she has encountered bullying and exclusion due to heavy racism. (Ignorance) this is primarily amongst students and parents of such. Proceed with caution!!!

    I have two girls at lincoln and i will tell you that the teachers are second to none as is the administration. My children previously attended a catholic school and although the environment was fine it was not worth the cost of tuition. Lincoln is the place to be!

    In the seven years my daughter has been a student at Lincoln (K-4 -- 5th Grade) I have never been less than pleased. The staff of Lincoln structures the learning in such a way that it is fast-paced yet comprehensible to provide our children with the most valuable learning tools. In times of changing the teaching methods to newly adapted ideas we parents were even invited to attend 'classes' to learn the way our children are learning in the classroom in order to better assist them at home. I have been extremely pleased with my choice of sending my daughter to Lincoln Elementary.
