• We at the Lincoln School have a student-centered mindset. We are committed to providing a safe, orderly and productive learning environment for all. Our teaching practices are both reflective and responsive to the needs of our students, which occurs when we foster positive and trusting relationships between the staff and students. We do not accomplish these goals alone, but in combination with our families and community. We accomplish this by providing rich and challenging experiences for all of our students. We have high expectations and will teach our students to think critically, as well as to persevere through all challenges they may face. Through these core values, we will prepare our students to use their full potential to become productive and contributing members of society.
