After three years experience with Lincoln, here are my conclusions. My son/daughter had some of the finest, most energetic, involved and engaged teachers.

If you have a child with special needs, this is not the right school.

This is an excellent school, with a great focus on the whole child. Academics are stressed, but no one forgets that these students are going through the biggest growth period of their life.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
