  • ACT Testing - Wednesday February 20th

    Juniors that have pre-registered will be taking the ACT on February 20th. This test is at no cost to students. Juniors will need to report to the Tiffany Center, located at 1410 SW Morrison Street (SW Morrison/SW 14th Ave., 3 blocks walk from Lincoln). Please report at 8:10am. The test should finish around 1pm. Once testing begins, no students can be seated. We encourage students to eat a good breakfast and be on time.

     
    ATTENTION ALL JUNIORS TAKING THE ACT
    You must bring your student ID with you to the test.
    You should also bring two #2 pencils with eraser (no mechanical pencils), and an approved calculator.
     
    We will be using two ballrooms at the Tiffany Center – one of the SECOND floor and one on the FOURTH floor. We will be seating you alphabetically by last name.

    Students with last name that begins with A-Hau will report to the FOURTH floor ballroom.

    Students with last name that begins with Hav-Z will report to the SECOND floor ballroom.

    Students need to report to the Tiffany Center at 8:00 AM and go immediately to the correct floor. For those of you who ride the school bus, please report as quickly as possible to the Tiffany Center once your bus arrives at Lincoln.

    What to bring:

    An ample supply of number 2 pencils with good erasers. We will have a limited number of pencils to lend so it is best to bring your own supplies.
    • An approved calculator. Although recommended to bring, you do not necessarily need one for the math section of the test. All problems can be worked without a calculator. Here is the link to the calculator policy from ACT: www.act.org/calculator-policy.html. Again, we have a limited number of calculators to lend. Make sure your calculator is fully charged and think about bringing spare batteries if your calculator uses batteries.
    • Your student ID!

    What NOT to bring.These items will not be allowed in the testing room:

    • Food
    • Drink
    • Cellphones
    • Backpacks or bags. There is a coat closet that can be used to store some bags, but it is not large enough to store the bags of every student testing. Please leave your bags in your locker at Lincoln.

  • L150 Celebration

    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.

     

    Our Goals

    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!

    Peyton Chapman

    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 peytonc@pps.net 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,

    Peyton
