40 Parent Reviews for Lincoln Park High School

I believed th hype and sent my kid here, since coming here, he has been bullied, very hard to get a appointment to speak with a teacher and when graduated he only got a 18 on the ACT. Don't let this staff fool you, they dont care about students with IEPs or students who are the top students. Not all ...  Read more

I like Lincoln Park High School as its faculty are always willing to help...they post with the students and the parents and keep everyone in touch with what is going on. Their phone calls to keep parents informed of weather, school activities, etc. are great.

I attended this school for one year, and I have to say that it is probably one of the worst schools in the city of chicago, regardless of what the statistics say. All classes except for the IB program are not at all rigorous (I was in the Double Honors program) and it was extremely easy. I faced a greater ...  Read more

I have a freshman in Performing Arts. He has had a great year and great teachers. He is getting A's and B's and is not being bullied. Being smart and studying hold prestige instead of shame. I am nervous about the wall to wall IB, bue we will give it a try and see how it goes.

Apply to this school, ONLY if you want to study in IB. As a student who' completed all 4 years of IB, I can say that this was the most useful learning experience of my life -- made college a piece of cake. Honestly, a lot of knowledge I've acquired in IB was more useful and insightful than in college. ...  Read more

I graduated in 93 and my sister graduated in 97...we LOVED this school, the theater program and honors classes. It is an inner city school that faces the challenges specific to the city itself, but has always sought diversity and teachers that care.

Honestly as a student i have to agree that a lot of people are very poorly behaved, but to act as if the issues reported to the dean or teachers are ignored is bogus. Teachers have control but do take a lot of time out of their day telling kids to knock it off. it is easy to find friends at Lp so don't ...  Read more

This is a fantastic well-rounded school with many academic options. The IB program is top notch.

In reference to most recent review posted on August 4, 2012, thank you for that feedback. I have officially chosen LP as the school of choice for my son who will be starting next month. I'm the parent who posted a review on March 22, 2012 when I was close to making a decision. I agree with you in regards ...  Read more
