    "Our oldest child has been in the Montessorri program at Lincoln for five years and we are very satisfied with the program. Our younger child has started this year as well. We're not too fond of the current Principal , but we really liked the two previous ones. Overall, we love this school!"

    "I wanted to also comment on the response about student/parents not being happy. I've seen Lincoln with two principles now and have been very happy with both. I was worried when we were getting a new principle when Janice Spearman went on however, I will tell you that she really brings light to that school. She's taken the time to have meetings with me spur of the moment about my son. She's shown a real interest in his education, it's amazing how far along he's come just this year alone! I can't even imagine how challenging it is to be a teacher or a principle this day in age, especially at a public school. I feel very lucky to have gotten my little man into this school. Thank you to the staff and a special thanks to Ms. Erin and Ms. Spearman!"

    "I would like to respond to the comment about teachers and students being "unhappy" at Lincoln under the new leadership of Janice Spearman. Unfortunately, this parent is mis-informed. The staff members at Lincoln are very happy with our principal and appreciate her support in anything that we do here. Lincoln is a unique school in that we have both the Montessori program and a traditional program. Both programs work very well with each other. We are ONE staff with high expectations for all students, no matter what program the student is enrolled in. Janice supports both programs equally. What may turn some parents off is the fact that Ms. Spearman also has high expectations for parents. She holds them accountable along with her staff and our students. Lincoln is still a "Distinguised" school as we have been over the past four years. The teachers work very hard at Lincoln to ensure success for all students and we do this under the wonderful leadership of Ms. Spearman along with the other amazing principals we have been blessed to have over the past five years. Please do not ever get the impression that teachers and students are unhappay at Lincoln based on one opinion."

    "I would agree with other reviews in that the montessori program is favored in the school and supported by the parent population. But, I found that the traditional program has higher expectations for my child, provides them with technology, and has more diversity in the classroom. I have had my child in both the traditional and montessori programs and overall Lincoln is an excellent school."

    "My children have gone to Lincoln for 5 years now and I have watched it go through many changes over the years. At the time, it had a top rating of 10 through greatschools.com and truly was one of the best in the district. The school has been through 3 Principals in those 5 years and has suffered from a lack of leadership. I have decided to leave a comment based on many common parent complaints about Janice Spearman, the current Principal. The teachers aren't happy, the parent community is unhappy and the children are unhappy. There are high quality teachers there but is obvious they are not being supported and are getting burnt out! The Parent Community is the only reason why the school is surviving. Although we are deciding to move our children to a different school, I really hope for the school improves for all of the parents that decide to stick it out. It's sad to see what was once a wonderful school suffer."
