Mission: Lincoln School is committed to providing academic challenges to motivate and prepare students to be self-directed, collaborative learners and citizens.

Lincoln Elementary Overview

At Lincoln we are focusing on using Leader in Me to help fulfill our mission statement. Lincoln possesses the type of school culture that most educators, parents, and students dream of. We are truly a family and have an amazing climate and culture- a true breeding ground for Leader in Me.  Lincoln has committed staff that on the whole, goes above and beyond for students- we take an “All hands on deck” approach. As a result, Lincoln has highly engaged families and thriving students.

Lincoln School is focused on meeting the needs of our students and we believe that Leader In Me directly supports building skills that allow this to happen. To do so, we are focusing on use of common language, leadership notebooks, student led conferences and a leadership event.
