    "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."

    "I'm currently a junior at LPHS. After reading some of these reviews,i've seen alot of negative feed back. Lincoln park is an excellent school for kids who want to find their true selves because Lincoln Park opens up their eyes in a way they've never did before. Before I came Lp I had no idea that I was talented,important,or smart. i've lived on the far south side for my whole life and only knew what I saw and was told,I never wanted to learn more. I was bullied from pre-k through 8th grade because i'm black with naturally red hair and I was diferent ,which made me hate my hair and myself.When I came to Lincoln Park, the kids embraced my hair and my character and made me feel like I mattered. I was never smart,so my grades, were low and no high school would accept me;but LPHS was the only one that did,out of 12 schools. Lphs gave me a chance at a better education and I'm so grateful. Now some of the staff are rude and ignorant,but so are 50% of Americans now of days. I hate my counselor because she's not good but the rest our border-line perfect.If you want your kid to be ready for the real world then send them Lphs because it's a really good school"

    "This school is a great school with lots of talented students and lots of potential. But the school and staff are not.focused of the students learning. Lincoln Park is more focused on discipline and not the students education. They're to busy trying to keep up with other schools by buying flat screen televisions for the lunchroom, but we dont have enough books, most are torn into bits, or not enough for a class. We also have insects and mice infested in the school. I think Lincoln park can do so much better than what they are doing."

    "The freshman counselor is great about sending emails and reminders for everything its wonderful. All the teachers I have dealt with are caring and concerned and get back to me right away. I'm hoping this continues after Freshman year!"
