    "Excellent school. Teachers & staff pay close attention to the students needs. My daughter is an accelerated reader and writer and her teacher has accommodated her needs."

    "LOVE Lincoln! Great principal, great teachers, great enviornment as far as other kids and parents. From the start they recognized my daughter's needs and met them on both ends of the spectrum (she needed help with handwriting and yet was an advanced reader and received instruction from both the occupational therapist and the gifted teacher). The facilities are wonderful as well. I would highly recommend Lincoln to another parent as it has exceeded my high expectations."

    "Disappointing in many ways. We had high hopes for LIncoln but pulled our children out after a few years. They learned more science and social studies in the first month of private school than they did in several years at Lincoln. The principal is so focused on test scores that nothing is taught except the math and language that will be on tests. I was also really disappointed in the general quality of teachers. One of our teachers actually swore at kids in the classroom - which the principal tried to cover up. The art and music programs were fantastic though."

    "Wonderful school. My daugher graduated from a primary montessori program and stared 1st grade at Lincoln. The teachers and staff are caring and supportive. The homework is appropriate. My daughter loves her teacher and looks forward to going to school ever day."

    "Strong art, music, PE & library programs. Concern re recent test scores is misplaced when consider both racial diversity here & the absurdity of certain No Child Left Behind requirements. Gifted teacher has hands full due to school size & would clearly prefer time to be more creative but still fits in some awesome projects (e.g. global Virtual Classroom for 5th graders). Most teachers do well meeting kids' needs at various levels. OP parents are opinionated & demanding, yet the vast majority of Lincoln families love the school. 2 good options for after-school care for working parents. Principal has her teachers' backs (at times to a fault, per some parents) & gives them respect & autonomy. Teacher morale is thus high & teachers have very strong bonds & good mentoring relationships. Do NOT move here w/ unrealistic hopes of Spanish fluency. Partial Span. immersion program has definite benefits, but space is ltd (1 out of 4-5 classrooms per grade) & even then, this is NOT full immersion, & teachers still have to get through ALL the same curriculum in the same time as others)"
