    "Sadly, I've been quite underwhelmed with this school over the years. I suppose education has changed over the last decade and I find it hardly recognizable today. I've asked myself many times over the years if it's Lincoln, District 65, or just education these days and I'm not sure of the appropriate answer. Nonetheless, Lincoln has been disappointing to me. We've had our three children here for the last four years and have only had two good teachers between the three of them. The principal is absent, seemingly uninspired and uninspiring, and principal before was aggressive and unwelcoming. I want to love this school, as it's so close and the community is great, but the school and it's staff and lack of staff (office) just don't get the job done. Things need to change from the testing, to the short lunch, to the short recess, and teaching to the test. I don't feel we can raise inspired, free-thinking, functioning, happy children until we make some changes in our schools. Lincoln has just not done it for us."

    "We have been a part of the Lincoln community for several years. The teachers are caring and communicative. The parent community is highly involved. There are many after-school activities and wonderful community-building events. I would definitely recommend Lincoln to other families."

    "Lincoln is a school that has grown faster than it can handle. Consensus among parents I've polled is that the new Principal doesn't respond to emails or calls and is rarely seen. New renovation left the field where kids used to play a mess and unusable. Outdoor play space severely limited. Indoor recess is awful: no physical activity, kids must be quiet, etc. This school is a mess. We're looking to get the heck out."

    "Lincoln has gone through significant changes in the last three years. There is a gorgeous renovated building (with multi-purpose room, new classrooms, and bright windows), two new young principals, and a growing population now over 500 kids. With that has come changes in leadership and enrichment offerings. This school is certainly on the up and a very popular place to be right now."

    "I have one child now finishing kindergarten. It's been a phenomenal year for our child and for us. The school is in the midst of some much-needed renovations; it will be wonderful not to have to eat lunch in the gym, and to have an auditorium that holds the entire student body.....as well as to have playgrounds and playspaces back from the construction trucks! The physical space results in the one star off.....the teachers, staff, other students and other families have been AMAZING. Very diverse population, strong emphasis on respect, nice positive behavioral incentive program, strong PTA offerings after school....we're thrilled to be part of the Lincoln community."
