  • SAT Day Schedule

    Lincoln High School will be hosting the SAT on March 4, 2020 in the Gym. The schedule affects all students, so please see information below:
    Freshman, Sophomores, Seniors: Following an 8-period bell schedule - 

    Period 1: 8:10 – 8:40a

    Period 2: 8:45 – 9:15a

    BREAK: 9:15 – 9:25a

    Period 3: 9:30 – 10:00a

    Period 4: 10:05 – 10:35a

    Period 5: 10:40 – 11:10a

    Period 6: 11:15 – 11:45a

    Lunch: 11:45a – 12:15p

    Period 7: 12:20 – 12:50p

    Period 8: 12:55 – 1:25p

    Please note that SAT testing will be happening in the building during the day, so students will be expected to help us maintain an ideal testing environment during passing periods and during lunch. Senior hallway will be closed during lunch hours to avoid distracting testing students. If your student rides the bus to and from school, pickup will happen between 1:25 and 1:30pm, so students will be home earlier than a usual school day. 


    On Wednesday, March 4, junior students will be taking the SAT at Lincoln High School. If you just received an email from me about testing with accommodations, please disregard this email as the information is the same.

    The SAT test is scheduled to run from 8:10am to 1:10pm (unless you are testing with accommodations--please see email from Mr. Brida for more specific information). Because of the length of this test and because it is happening during a regular school day, please read the information below to ensure your student is prepared for the test.

    School will be dismissed at 1:25pm. This is also when yellow bus transportation will arrive to Lincoln to bring students home. Students being dismissed on time is incumbent on them arriving to the test on time. Please encourage your juniors to be here by 8:00am so the test runs smoothly and on time. 

    Students will not be able to have lunch during testing, so they should anticipate having lunch when the test is completed. Students should bring water and snacks to eat during the breaks, which usually last approximately 5 minutes in duration (so think "something quick"). If a student usually gets breakfast or lunch at Lincoln, they should come get breakfast before coming up to the test. A bagged lunch will be available to them after the test is over. 

    In addition to snacks and water, students should also bring: two number 2 pencils and an approved calculator. Students SHOULD NOT bring their cell phone or backpack with them to testing. Any violation of CollegeBoard's strict cell phone policy will result in a invalidated test and the student will be asked to leave. 

    Students should anticipate being in the gym during the entirety of testing. The breaks are short during testing, so remind your student to use the bathroom before coming to the test. Encourage them to get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast and do their best!

    If you have any questions, please contact me directly via email ( or by calling me at 503-916-6085.

    Enjoy your week and weekend!

Lincoln High School Rebuild



    Peyton Chapman

    Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,

    Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top college prep International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving, Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Spanish Immersion, and CTE programs in Media & Communications, Coding & Computer Science, Business, Culinary Arts, and Product Design. 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. Students facilitate over 60 student-led clubs including MUN, Robotics, Speech and Debate, GSA, BSU, MEChA, Asian, Arab, Jewish, and Native American student unions. 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 and appreciated.

    Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be involved and follow your passions.” We are fortunate to be able to offer an engaging, diverse and rigorous core academic program and our expectation is that students are supported to explore, play, grow and practice 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 its 94% 4 year graduation rate. Lincoln students regularly meet and exceed international benchmarks on IB exams as well as state tests. Students care deeply about issue relevant to their lives and are empowered to speak as youth advocates. 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 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,
