    "Lincoln is the best neighborhood school in Chicago area. Strong leadership and vision from the principle, excellent teachers, active parents. It has low percentage of blacks and Hispanics, very low percentage of low-income students. In terms of students exceeding state standards, it outperforms all magnet schools and even a few selective enrollment schools. At least as good as the schools from the burbs. Imaging what the rumored $30~50 mil new building could do for the school."

    "Lincoln is a wonderful school. The teachers are engaging and the children have fun while being challenged. There are numerous field trips throughout the year beginning in first grade, and in addition, numerous guest speakers, presenters, and performers are brought in. The children receive a well-rounded education that prepares them to enter the most competitive high schools in Chicago."

    "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."
