    The Goose Hollow Neighborhood Association allots Friends of Lincoln 30 parking permits each semester for students.  These permits are for SENIORS only due to the limited number of permits available and the high number of seniors who apply.  


    These permits are for seniors who are otherwise unable to use public transportation to get to or from school, who carpool, and/or participate in PPS/LHS affiliated after school activities.  

    Only one semester permit per family or household, per year, is allowed. 

    Applicant information will be reviewed, then selected by lottery.  

    Students must be in good standing to be considered. 



    Online application link:

    Please note that in addition to the online application, applicants must submit the following to room 104 in order to be considered:

    + a printed copy of the application with parent signature

    + a copy of a valid driver's license 

    + proof of insurance

    COMPLETED APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY 4:00pm FRIDAY, AUGUST 16th. Late applications or applications missing information will not be considered due to large number of applicants and quick turn time needed to get students the permits within the first week of school.  As soon as the committee meets to verify information and run the lottery, all applicants and parents will be notified of the results.  If awarded a permit, for either Fall or Spring, students will get detailed instructions and have a few days to get a check dropped off to room 104 so the city can process the permits. 


    Any questions, please call, text or email Suzy Cordisco, parent volunteer on Goose Hollow Parking Permit Committee, at or 503-530-0375.  The permits are not granted by Lincoln High School, so while room 104 staff graciously accept applications, payments, and then hand out permits once awarded, please direct all questions to the GH parking permit committee and thank those in rm 104 for helping out!!

  • 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!

    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 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,
