  • Panel Discussion supporting learning differences at Lincoln

    Parent & Faculty Panel for families supporting learning differences at Lincoln.

    Tuesday Sept 24th 7-8:30pm in Room 169

    Dear Lincoln families,

    Learning differences can be hard for teens and families, especially at a large comprehensive high school like Lincoln. We know kids with learning differences are bright, creative, resourceful and often more sensitive. Come join parents who would like to support each other, share advocacy strategies, hear from faculty, and help Lincoln better serve all students. This parent group was formed last year in partnership with Principal Chapman to help her and Lincoln’s staff best serve diverse learners. 

    PALS (Parent Advocates for Learning Success)

    PALS group mission is to advocate for our Lincoln students with learning differences. The ways in which this group will do so include:

    ·  Share strategies on how best to advocate for your child

    ·  Educate teachers on how best to support IEP/504 student needs

    ·  Partner with Lincoln’s administrators to improve Lincoln’s learning environment for students with learning differences

    ·  Provide access to resources (e.g SAT/ACT accommodation education, counselor resources available, recent articles/books ...)

    ·  Advocate for additional resource to support our students, particularly students with a 504 where less resource is available and students are at high risk.  


    ·  Share PALS Mission Statement & Approach Last Year

    ·  Topline Lincoln resources available to parents

    ·  Panel Introductions & Discussion

    ·  Parent Q&A


    All are welcome.  Please join us for an informative discussion.

  • Lincoln rebuild project update - June 2019

    Lincoln rebuild project update - June 2019
    When students and staff return this coming fall we will be only months away from the start of construction. School will continue as before in the current Lincoln building while the new multi-story building begins to take shape on the athletic field on the west side of the campus. Construction is expected to take approximately 30 months with students and staff moving to the new Lincoln building in the fall of 2022. Then the old Lincoln building will be demolished to make room for a new track and field facility that will open on the east side of campus in the fall of 2023. All construction activities will be separated by fencing, providing a safe environment for students and staff.

    Lincoln rebuild summary 
    The Lincoln rebuild includes a new multi-story building which includes performing arts spaces, a student commons, an expanded gymnasium facility and state of the art classrooms. There will be a plaza adjacent to the student commons for outdoor activities and to connect the campus to the surrounding neighborhood through pedestrian-friendly design. For more information, please view the new Lincoln Rebuild info-flyer.

    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,
