  • Land Acknowledgement

    It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendents -- past, present, and future.

    Where Portland stands today are the historic homelands of several bands of Chinook-speaking people (including many Multnomah, Clackamas, and Watlata/Cascade villages). There were also Kalapuya (Tualatin villages) nearby and the Molalla people in the Willamette Valley. Today, their descendants are primarily members of the Grand Ronde and Siletz Confederated Tribes, with Chinook and other tribal relations at Warm Springs, Yakama, and the Chinook Nation. 

    In the reconstruction of this institution, let us acknowledge that it was founded upon exclusion and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are standing upon today. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment from Lincoln High School to work to dismantle the ongoing legacies and ideologies of settler colonialism.

  • Forecasting for 24/25 School Year

    The 2024-25 forecasting information for current LHS students can be found HERE. Students must complete a forecasting form, have parent's sign the form and complete forecasting on Synergy. Forecasting is due January 12th.

  • How to Record Absences

    Here are two steps that will be helpful to know. Note: Per district policy it is the parent's responsibility to clear unexcused absences within three school days or 72 hours of the absence or the absence(s) will remain unexcused

    Present/Future Full Day

    Log in to the ParentVUE website on your computer or download and open the phone application. In either case, look for the "Report Absence" button to the right of your student's photograph. Select start date and the end date (if more than 1 school day) and then a reason from a drop-down list. Add a note if needed. Remember to click SAVE and you should receive a popup confirmation.

    Partial/Past Day

    Go to Lincoln High School's main webpage (if you are reading this you are already there) and click on the red button with the Cardinal in flight on the right side of the page. It will take you to a Google form that will ask for your email, student ID, name, date of absence, partial (arrive late, leave early, out and back in) and a few other related questions.

    If you need to pick your child up early for a doctor’s appointment or other reason, please fill out the Google attendance form using the BIG RED BIRD BUTTON on Lincoln's homepage. For any other questions on attendance, contact

    The district's robo-call goes out to parents twice a day as a reminder when students do not attend class. Please be patient, if you have already submitted a form, as it takes time to process through Synergy. You can always verify that the correction was made by looking in ParentVue the next day.

    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 and American Sign Language 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,
