    "3/5 kindergarten classrooms are ESL, >80% are on free or reduced price lunches with 200 families receiving a bag of groceries per week, all kids receive a free breakfast and some get dinner. We're middle class and are wealthy in comparison. With these disadvantages, we have the highest math scores and fourth highest English in Oakland and up there with wealthy suburban schools. Our secrets? Expect a lot of homework from excellent teachers. STRONG family involvement with a strong work ethic. We have a newly expanded and renovated campus. The only negative is a largely homogenous population, a function of the 2 Cantonese to English ESL classrooms and the school being in the heart of Oakland's Chinatown. The English competent classrooms are more diverse. Our principal is new so I don't have much to add about her but the transition to the Common Core is going smoothly, which reflecrs well on her leadership."

    "This is an incredible public school. Great academics. This school can boast excellent hard working knowledgeable teachers and staff, supportive parents and community and in general a great well behaved student body. What a hidden gem we are lucky to have here in Oakland."

    "Lincoln Elementary is a model school where students, teachers, staff, and parents seem to work together well to achieve academic success. Our goal as a school is for the students to excel academically and socially. We value creativity, integrity, self-confidence, open mindedness, excellence, teamwork, open communication, and cultural pride. Lincoln Elementary has received the 2010 National Blue Ribbon Award and is recognized as a California Distinguished School. The test scores are above the statewide goal and continues to improve. Students are well-mannered and enjoy learning."

    "The principal's action raised my concern. Power and control are her priority. Many children were kicked out of the school without a good reason. Most kids attend this school are new immigrant families, they do not know where to complaint and most of time just keep quiet, they don't want their child to be mistreat in school (just as in china). The principal able to disqualified a child to attend this school because the student went back to China to visited his ill grandma, before she past away, even advance notification had given. I have heard many many of these incidents. High expectation, and strict rules are fine, however, requiring the new immigrant to paid thousands of dollars for summer program otherwise, the child will be stay behind. Not many of the new immigrant can afford to pay for these program. I hope her priority not just on the school record."

    "Lincoln Elementary School had gradually improved over the years with the very helpful after-school program, OASES (Oakland Asian Students Educational Services). After school, many of Lincoln's students enhance their social and academic skills through the influence of University of California - Berkeley students."
