    "This school is horrible, and it's not just this school, it's the whole district. The kids are unruly and no one does much to stop it. The letters from the teachers that went out at the beginning of the year clearly stated that homework was basically optional and it was no big deal if it wasn't done. Text books would not be given out, because the person you have to share your locker with would steal it. You can get a lock for your locker but don't put anything in it because the kids can pick locks quicker than they can open the door. I was appalled to say the least. I wish I would have homeschooled. The whole district map is unfair and lots of good kids are getting a very poor education. If moving to Rockford, stay north of Guilford Rd, or your kids will not be educated."

    "Lincoln isn't very strict with any of the rules, mostly the uniform policy, and the kids notice that, which makes them more unruly. The always punish the entire class for one students wrong doing, and most of the students don't behave that well. The lessons are mostly boring and not interesting at all. It's just not that great of a 'learning environment.' I wouldn't have chose a different school to go to though, all the other middle schools in district 205 seem quite strict."

    "I have had 2 students attend Lincoln and have nothing but great things to say about the school. The teaching staff is outstanding. I was a little worried when I heard Mr. Valentine, the Principal, was leaving, with another child about to start. I was glad to hear though that his assistant, Mr. Grey, was taking over. In my dealings with Mr. Valentine and Mr. Grey I have always felt that while they are strict and hold the student to a very high standard, they also exhibit the type of caring and understanding towards the students that is evident in the respect that they recieve from the students. My daughter said that while she never wanted to get in trouble and have to deal with the two of them, she knew that they would help her if she was having a problem."

    "Lincoln is an excellent middle school! I am an Alumnus and now as a sophomore in college I reflect back on Lincoln fondly and feel that it prepared me very excellently for high school and beyond. The staff is amazing and the building is gorgeous and well kept. The new library is absolutely stunning. I've also met some of my life long friends while attending Lincoln. The extracurricular s are very well balanced between the arts and physical sports. When I attended Lincoln I always felt as if the teachers and staff in general were very willing to help each individual student and took great care of the students. I highly recommend Lincoln for all future students."
