In 2018-2019 Students, alumni, families, teachers, and other friends of Lincoln High School will be celebrating the school’s sesquicentennial (150th anniversary). LHS is one of the West’s oldest and most celebrated public secondary schools. Most events will occur in Portland – but some might be in far flung places around the world, wherever LHS alumni live!
L150 will include students, parents, alumni and the larger community. Alumni will be reminded of their affinity with our school. We all will celebrate and work towards a more just and equitable world, in the spirit of our academic and civic heritage.
To hold a celebration that is just, inclusive and participatory;
To have fun and renew friendships;
To build a strong base for excellence in the next 150 years;
To assist in the “Lincoln Rebuild” to prepare for the future;
To carry forward the Cardinal Spirit of inspired learning to make a better world for all.
To have fun!

Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,
Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top 100 college prep International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving, Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Business, Culinary Arts, and Spanish Immersion programs. In addition to Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German, Lincoln is excited to be one of a handful of schools in the nation to offer Arabic to high school students.
Our students are actively involved inquirers who think critically about the world in which they live. In addition, Lincoln students regularly participate in highly competitive 6A athletics,a host of club sports from Water Polo to Sailing and Lacrosse, and are involved in a variety of engaging and meaningful extra-curricular activities and community service projects here and abroad. Our community is one in which “parents and neighbors are welcome partners”. Parent volunteerism at Lincoln is unparalleled.
Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be smart.” We are fortunate to be able to offer a rigorous core academic program and our expectation is that students are supported to explore, play, and discover their passions to build the skills they need to gain confidence and feel success. The Lincoln community then works collaboratively to provide opportunities to connect student interests and skills to the world around them to create purpose and meaning. Lincoln values the whole child, providing academic advising and college counseling as well as evidenced based social-emotional, special education, ELL, and mental health supports as needed.
Finally, Lincoln consistently earns top ratings for academic achievement, attendance and high graduation rates. Lincoln students regularly meet and exceed international benchmarks on IB exams as well as state tests. Lincoln is proud to support and produce amazing graduates who go on to pursue a wide variety of exciting opportunities. As Principal I am honored to serve the Lincoln community. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. We encourage you and your student to join our inclusive community.
With Warm Regards,
Dear PPS Community,
Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.
Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.
It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
