Abraham Lincoln High School is a comprehensive high school with a long history of high expectations and excellence. The goal is to provide a positive, nurturing school environment that supports high academic performance and high student self-image. We recognize that students bring their diverse experiences into the classroom, and believe instruction should be responsive to different student learning needs. In addition, Lincoln offers a rigorous AP and honors program, services for Special Education severely and non-severely impaired students, a comprehensive English Language Learner (ELL) program that prepares students to become bilingual and biliterate, Career Academies, a Wellness Center, Peer Resource Program, AVID, Step-to-College, and a wide variety of clubs, athletic, and other extracurricular activities. The Environmental Service Learning Initiative promotes environmental and social justice. We also feature community partnerships with 14 different community agencies.
Our teachers focus on authenticity, relevance, enthusiasm, critical thought, and creativity, while allowing students to take pride in their success. We hold ourselves accountable to a culture of service and support. It means that school staff share responsibility for each student's success.
