    We love Lincoln Charter School. The curriculum is well rounded. Spanish is taught from K up. The teachers that we have had to deal with are all excellent. This has been a very good choice for our family.

    I love Lincoln Charter School because to me they do wonders for children. They are very parent student teacher oriented and always keep you involved. Plus they have a great no bullying policy and they are very attentive. I know my children are learning and safe.

    i would not recommend this school to anyone.The classroom are overcrowed 29 children to one teahers and the kids are out of control and the teahers all yell and they look over work . my son was they for a year and was an honor student and got pick all the time . i report it and no intervention was done. The '' has no bully '' policy. my son got beat up and no meeting was set from both party to settle this. please parent think about your children and if you dont belive me enroll your child and do surpise visit you'll see. Good luck!!!!!!!!

    My son is in his 2nd year @ Lincoln Charter and I am glad that I chose this school for his education. He is now in 1st grade and his Kindergarten teacher made us feel welcomed. She kept us informed of all his performances she made it a point to always return calls and if she couldn't she sent a note home in his folder. Mrs. Whitsel (if spelled right sorry) was wonderful. His current teacher is doing a great job as well with his education thus far and I would recommend Lincoln Charter School to other parents to experience perfection as well as I have.

    This school has no control over their kids in general! Teacher's standing around while fights break out amongst middle school kids with our little children around without any intentions to protect our kid's! Teacher's teasing children ignoring important matters & to top that off the principal even sides with the teacher's at fault! This would never be a school I would recommend to any parent .

    As a parent I am thrilled that my son attends the Lincoln Charter School. The teachers are great and the technology that is available for him is top rate. He adores his teacher and he has lots of friends.
