    "I feel like some of the teachers are there just for a pay check. The school doesn't care about getting good quality athletic coaches. It would be much better if the teachers would make there classes more interesting, & go the extra mile to keep the students engaged in all subjects. I don't think the school should allow the students to use their cell phones in any of the classes. They are there to learn. They shouldn't be allowed to see what's on social media during school. It also appears to me the same kids get everything. It's all about the popular kids, which isn't fair. I do feel they give the kids a chance to get college courses by going off campus to Central downtown."

    "There are many clubs that student's can join and get involved in. For the most part the student's at the school are very accepting. I would go back to this school if I had to, its one of the best schools in the area."

    "Students choice the classes that they want to take other than their core classes. The scheduling process is easy any problems with schedule's get fixed fast. If Lincoln does not offer a class they have a campus called Central Campus/ Central Academy that is paired up with Des Moines Area Community College where they can earn college credit as well as high school credits."

    "Lincoln has a high rate of student involvement. There is some bullying between students like most school, but for the most part student accept people that are different from them."

    "I just don't feel like most of the teachers go the extra mile at this school. There are very few that really seem to care about the students. The overall quality of the teachers in my opinion is not that good. Some of the teachers teaching styles are difficult. For instance in the Algebra & Calculus classes one teacher in particular teaches above some of the students heads. Most of the kids do not want to be in her class because she moves too quickly & expects the students to remember everything from prior math classes. However, the other math teachers do have a good teaching style that really shows they care that the students understand the concepts. They are approachable & do give help when the students ask for help. I think communication skills are lacking from some of the teachers because they don't come across as approachable. Some of the teachers are boring & just give lectures & have them take notes from the slides they show. This is not a good way to keep the students attention or make it interesting to learn."
