My son is a sophomore at LWC. The school is performing above state levels; however, they did not make adequate yearly progress. The curriculum program is well organized and they have a great sports program. Unfortunately, the school is behind with technology. Walk into a classroom and you will see a ...  Read more

Amazing high school. As an alumni, I can say that LWC prepared me to be a well-educated and well-rounded person even more than my college did. The only complaint is that it was not terribly diverse, but that's not a fault of the school's. Fantastic teachers, classes, extra-curriculars, and facilities.

My daughter just started as a Freshman and she loves it. I love how many after school clubs they have to keep the kids involved. There is great school spirit from the kids and teachers alike. It is the oldest of the Lincoln-Ways, but I believe the best!

I am going to be a Senior this coming fall and I feel that LWC has really helped me to find myself and be prepared for the future. They offer so many classes and activities that it is hard for a student to not be active. I might harp on Lincoln-Way, but the truth is I really do love it.

I graduated from Lincoln-Way Central in June 2008, and I immediatly missed it. Because of the activities, the great teachers, and the great community that surrounds Lincoln-Way, high school was easily the most fun I have ever had in my life. I went into high school with a resentment towards education, ...  Read more

I'm a senior at LWC, as I like to call it. I do have to admit, that any student at Lincoln-Way will get a very high quality education, especially for a public school. There are tons of activities, so nearly everyone can be involved. Most of the teachers are great, and care about the students, but (there's ...  Read more
