Lincoln High School
Lincoln has won national recognition for academic excellence, quality teachers and innovative classrooms—but it’s the personal connections and supportive environment that set Lincoln apart. In 2011, Lincoln earned a state innovation designation by instituting a pilot project—Lincoln Center—that provided select students with 450 extra instruction hours over the course of their high school career. Due to the proven academic benefits of Lincoln Center, all of Lincoln High School adopted the extended day, homework help and academic advising model beginning with the 2014-2015 school year. With the new “Lincoln 2.0” approach, the coursework is more challenging with many classes taught at the honors or Advanced Placement level. Lincoln also weaved in time for clubs, sports, extra-curricular programs and homework.

in extra and co-curricular activities is almost universal among the diverse

been completely modernized. Stadium continues
to adapt and evolve with the 21st century needs of students while
