15 Parent Reviews for Lincoln Elementary School

Sadly, I've been quite underwhelmed with this school over the years. I suppose education has changed over the last decade and I find it hardly recognizable today. I've asked myself many times over the years if it's Lincoln, District 65, or just education these days and I'm not sure of the appropriate ...  Read more

We have been a part of the Lincoln community for several years. The teachers are caring and communicative. The parent community is highly involved. There are many after-school activities and wonderful community-building events. I would definitely recommend Lincoln to other families.

Lincoln is a school that has grown faster than it can handle. Consensus among parents I've polled is that the new Principal doesn't respond to emails or calls and is rarely seen. New renovation left the field where kids used to play a mess and unusable. Outdoor play space severely limited. Indoor recess ...  Read more

Lincoln has gone through significant changes in the last three years. There is a gorgeous renovated building (with multi-purpose room, new classrooms, and bright windows), two new young principals, and a growing population now over 500 kids. With that has come changes in leadership and enrichment offerings. ...  Read more

I have one child now finishing kindergarten. It's been a phenomenal year for our child and for us. The school is in the midst of some much-needed renovations; it will be wonderful not to have to eat lunch in the gym, and to have an auditorium that holds the entire student well as to have ...  Read more

My other daughter has been recently diagnosed with ADD, I had issues previously but was told by teachers she would grow out of it. I have to say with the type of issues ...  Read more

I have 3 kids at Lincoln K,3,5. The school has had strong teachers with small class sizes. The facilities are the weakest link - and are on a plan to be improved by the school district. The math curriculum is strong and differentiation is happening in the classroom - although it took 1/2 year to kick ...  Read more

This is our 8th and final year at Lincoln (2 kids from k-5) and it's been a great experience. I would certainly recommend this school to any parents considering it. The class sizes are generally below average and we've found the principal and teachers to be very engaged and easy to talk to. The teachers ...  Read more

The community of teachers, staff, parents, and students is fabulous and, in my experience, supportive and inclusive. My son is involved in two after-school activities, sponsored by the PTA, and loves them. My son has some minor special needs and has never been teased or ridiculed for them, which is ...  Read more

It is a shame that the heritage of the arts that Lincoln Elementary has brought to the Evanston community, and the world beyond is falling so quickly. The school has lost many wonderfully gifted teachers, and has been replacing quickly them with little consideration of the lasting impact that high teacher/ ...  Read more
