Lincoln High has offered my child an excellent opportunity to excel in sports, choir, dance and other activities. Mr. Hewittson, the principal, makes it known to parents that academics are ALWAYS the priority for the students. All staff/teachers are focused in teaching the subjects for knowledge, retention and success for each student. The campus setting at Lincoln allows for social and educational interaction. I am proud to have my child attend Lincoln and become an alumni member with the class of 2016. She has been offered the best public education at Lincoln and will be successful in college and any chosen career because of Lincoln High School. Go Lions!

My grandson goes to this high school. The teachers seem to make the material interesting to the students. The chorus teacher is wonderful - not just for what she teaches, but for her involvement with the students. Most of all, the school seems to be very welcoming and inclusive - the administration, teachers, and other students.

I'm a Junior Here At Lincoln , It's a Great! School I loved Being Here Since My Freshman Year.The Year's I've Spent At Lincoln Made My Academics Soar The Teachers Are Amazing .They make me feel comfortable in the School Environment its safe Secure but i hate it that they have police there to make it feel like its a bad school it's not. Though I'm surprised by the increased number of New Students Attending ,there is the concern that 'This Is A Performing Arts School'And A Special One Of That that has Students with soaring talents.The Motto Is Do Right !.I'm Showing That here, accomplishing the commitment of my school showing this Review that hope makes you think Twice .It Has Things That some other schools don't have, A friendly community .Everybody Is Equal In every Way and in every way No matter of Ethnicity or Sexual Orientation .

At a lot of high schools, you may have kids hanging out with only one group of friends, their cliche, or you might hear often, 'You can't do that' or other discouraging things, or unsupportive teachers, but at Lincoln High School you don't find any of that. The reason I love lincoln so much is because of it's free environment, the encouraging atmosphere, and the performing arts. All the staff are approachable, and every student is super friendly. Also, this school puts on the most amazing shows ever, literally, the kids here are so very talented and take advantage of the resources they are given. I think any kid who has a love for the performing arts needs to come to this high school :)

Lincoln offers far more than any other private high school offers. Everybody is super active and there is a diverse population too. Students are very sesative and responsible, and it is a comfortable environment to be in, especially when you spend most of the day there!

Lincoln is such a great school. The principal, Chris Funk, is extremely active. He attends golf tournaments, mock trial competitions, water polo games, music concerts, drama plays and a plethora of other productions Lincoln puts on. Everyone immediately gets involved when they first come to this school. Being a magnet school for the arts, many kids interact quicker and proudly show off their skills in the classroom and on the court. There are a variety of clubs on campus where teachers and students are allowed to show their creativity, indivualism, and personality. I don't know anyone that hasn't had fun while going to Abraham Lincoln. They have more accelerated/ap/honors classes than other schools in the district. Lincoln has many awards given to them because of their strive to do community service and help students. Parents are extremely involved and you can tell students care about their 'job'.

Incredible school! Awesome principal - friend to all but lays down the law and has high expectations of faculty, staff, students and parents. Magnet school for the arts - highly supported by all and independent financial backing as well from the state.

I can't say enough great things about Lincoln HS! My daughter graduated & went onto be accepted into the Honors program at UCLA. She is graduating this spring Summa Cum Laude as an English/Political Science Major. She has been active in music in LA and hopes to work for a non-profit Arts organization. My son is graduating this year from Lincoln and was accepted at UCLA, Cornell, and will attend Georgia Tech where he plans to major in engineering, focusing in Nanotechnology. I think this speaks volumes about the excellant education both kids recieved at Lincoln while having the opportunity to participate in an outstanding music program and both served as attorneys on the schools great Mock Trial Team. The staff and teachers are incredible, intelligent, compassionate and dedicated!

I have sent three children to Lincoln. One is now a genetic engineer, the other a performance artist, and the last is a senior, excelling in sports and mathematics. Lincoln is a decent school, but the best thing about it is the acceptance. There is no racial tension. Many students are openly gay and are accepted and even protected. I believe Lincoln contributes in a positive way to the values I wish to instill in my son.
