Lincoln School Vision Statement


Lincoln School continuously works to ensure we have

  • a knowledgeable, educated, flexible  staff working as a P.L.C.  focusing on student learning
  • an environment where staff, students and parents function together as a caring community
  • a learning community that focuses on essential learning, high expectations, and authentic experiences for the students
  • a learning community that creates students who can think critically problem solve and engage in their own learning and
  • a safe environment where students feel they belong and are contributing members of the community.

Lincoln's mission

To provide an education that enables all students to become life-long learners who respect the diversity of others.
