I'm a student at LMS and this is a wonderful school. The teachers are great they acknowledge the student's ideas and thoughts. The academic ways of learning are great. It's a friendly school/ neighborhood welcoming anyone wanting to learn and explore technology. Lincoln is a wonderful school.

Yes, there is a lottery to be accepted into the school, but I encourage every parent that has a child in the 5th grade now to get an application filled out and get it to the school. The staff, ...  Read more
