Hate to agree with a previous post but there are several teachers there who should do the students a favor and change careers. They seem to be there just counting down to retirement.

I agree with other parents that is "Too many long-term, too-comfortable, ineffective teachers". Some of the teachers are awesome, but most seem like they are there for the above average paycheck.

Resting on their Laurels and playing favorites. The mixed reviews that I've read from other parents completely reflects the attitude at Lincoln. If your child happens to be a favorite of the teachers then you will have a great experience at Lincoln. If not, then your child is treated as a non-entity. ...  Read more
