    "Lincoln Park HS is a pretty good school. I am currently a senior at Lincoln Park. As an incoming freshman, I choose the Double Honors program at Lincoln Park over the Alpha Program at Lane Tech and it was a good choice. The HH program was very challenging for me and I fell behind quickly. Most of my teachers were helpful and tried to support me. Whenever I SEEK HELP, I get it. The college application process is pretty easy too. I meet with my counselor all the time now and she is always willing to help. Overall, any teacher or faculty member is willing to help IF YOU SEEK IT. I would love to praise the music program. As the best CPS music program, LP really cares for its musicians. Beginning band gets just as much attention as the Wind Symphony. The choirs are top notch. The music program is prestigious all around. Although I hate this school with a passion, I must say that it is a pretty great one."

    "Graduated from the I.b program a few years ago, absolutely horrible. Nothing but horrid memories from this institution. They counseling services at this school are close to nonexistent. Despite working extremely hard - I didn't get into my first choice university - nobody cared - all the focus and work was placed toward 2-3 I.b students. I do not recommend this place - if I had the $, I would go to Latin or Francis Parker - way less work and yet I would end up at the university of my choice. Disgusted and ashamed that I went here."

    "Lincoln Park high! While the teachers are dedicated, there is still not enough money to do all the things they want to do! If we could have a big FUNDING DRIVE every year, we could become one of the top 10 schools in the nation! If we could enlist an ASTRONAUT, or a well known PUBLIC figure to attend our drives, maybe people would commit! I myself, now living out-of-state, & with a minimum amount of SS per month, would still be willing to contribute something every year! Best wishes to all at LPHS...."

    "I'm a sophomore in the IB program at Lincoln Park, and this is in response mainly to those who have had anything negative to say about LP. LP is a great school. It is what you make it. It is impossible to use a school as a scapegoat for your own personal failures. The IB program is ridiculously rigorous, I took Pre- Calculus and Honors British Literature as a Freshman (Junior level classes) and as a sophomore I am currently taking an Integrated Science course and two AP classes as a Sophomore. From what I hear from my peers not in the IB, the Double Honors program is also very rigorous with options to take really advanced classes in the first two years of HS. There is no where else in the city (and arguably) the state where you can get a public education like this. The music program is outstanding. For those of you who complain about the lack of school spirit, you've never heard the band and have never been to the homecoming game. Unless you get involved, you will never experience anything LP has to offer. The administration and teachers are as involved in your/your child's education as you want them to be. LP is an outstanding school, if you want it to be. GO Lions!"

    "I am a Freshman at Lincoln Park High School. This school is one of the worst schools around. It's so bad that I would rather go to Schurz High School which is one of the worst high schools in CPS. At LP the security guards are terrible. The teachers are not that good. The students are horrible and don't care about anything. I have only been there for a year and I dread the next 3 years."
