Lincoln, the only high school on the East Side of Tacoma, suffers from a reputation as a “tough” school in an impoverished neighborhood—a reputation that principal Pat Erwin and his team have spent years remaking. Last year’s highly-publicized goodwill visit by 100 Lincoln students to the People’s Republic of China put the 103-year-old school in the national spotlight, but the trip only underscores a sea change in attitudes and approaches to education that informs Lincoln’s culture. As one student put it, “people used to say ‘you go to Lincoln? Oh.’ Now they say ‘You go to Lincoln? Whoa!’”Here are Erwin and some of Lincoln's teachers and administrators talking about the “nerd culture” and the rest of the Lincoln experience, in their own words.
