    "Had to laugh at May 17 poster who missed the point entirely- if your child gets into a selective enrollment (college prep) HS in Chicago they are definitely on the right hand side of the curve. The May 2 poster AGREES WITH YOU!!! It sounds like the May 2 poster had one child like the May 17 poster and another who needed assistance and the school fell down. Hard to disagree with a single family who has experienced both the good and bad at one school."

    "I have to strongly disagree with the 5/2/13 posting - this school is a real gem! The teachers and principal are committed to excellence in education as well as personal development of the children. My child transferred to Lincoln in 4th grade from a highly regarded, private school in Lincoln Park and is now thriving - getting good enough grades to be accepted into a college prep high school. No school is perfect but for a public school, this comes pretty darn close."

    "This is a great school if your child is on the right hand side of the bell curve. Strong fundraising means techers never lack for equipment or supplies. Teachers are decent and along with dedicated room parents things are pretty good. Sports and band programs are solid. However if your child is below the mean Lincoln's ability (and sadly among some staff, willingness) to help isn't great. One of our kids has had a wonderful experience but our other has been poorly served. If you're willing to push and work the system it's a pretty good school but if you think you can go on autopilot and be assured the school is watching out for your below average or special needs child you're making a sad and dangerous mistake."

    "I would like to clarify the misleading information in the 3/19/13 review. My first grader is in the classroom NEXT TO the boiler room (no class meets IN the boiler room), which was a music room for years. Not only is there a window in the room, but it is the only classroom with a second exit (fire door) that goes directly outside to the back of the school - - something I took comfort in the day that a gunman went into Sandyhook Elementary. Also, there are only 23 students in each of the first grade classes - - pretty wonderful for a CPS school. As for the kindergarten, there are two full-time, experienced kindergarten teachers in one over-sized classroom (specially designed for kindergarteners) teaching about 18 kids each. Again a nice student-teacher ratio. There's no question that having full-day kindergarten at Lincoln next year will put additional pressure on the school, but having more space available at DePaul for the older grades will help the school to address this challenge next year and possibly beyond. I have been a parent at this school for many years and, while it is not the small school it was when we first arrived, it has done well as the population swelled."

    "Lincoln was a great school but the overcrowding situation is deteriorating the quality of the school. A first grade class now meets in the boiler room with no windows, half the library was taken away last year and now they are talking about taking away the full library for next year. We lost the music classrooms and now band meets in the auditorium at the expense of assemblies and opportunities for kids to gain experience on stage. Currently there are 36 kindergarteners meeting in a single classroom. With the mandated full-day kindergarten the situation is worse. We know the principal and teachers will do their best, but a school with no library and no music classroom cannot be a great school."
