Lincoln High School
A dynamic learning community, and an engaging college preparatory curriculum.
Lincoln students and faculty work together in a constructive, engaging learning environment. Students and teachers know one another well, and learning takes place in an atmosphere of shared endeavor, mutual respect and trust. Our high school curriculum is founded in a commitment to critical thinking and inquiry, empowering students to build intellectual independence and effective collaborative skills.
Lincoln students experience a varied and appropriately challenging program of studies and activities, choosing from a wide range of innovative core and elective courses.
Our high school program includes a three-semester Theory of Knowledge program and culminates in the Senior Project, a core requirement for our graduating students, each of whom combines original research, an extended essay and a performance within the creative or academic field of his or her choice.
Our program supports a diverse student body. Lincoln offers a broad selection of Advanced Placement courses, sufficient for interested students to achieve an AP International Diploma. Lincoln also provides ESOL, academic and learning support programs.
High School Student Life
Members of a diverse community of confident, collegial young people, Lincoln students make a difference. Lincoln becomes the main social center for most of our high school students, and for most, the school day does not end when classes finish. After school, students may join extracurricular, service or sports activities, or seek study support from teachers or peers. Lincoln’s formal student-led organizations include Student Council and the National Honor Society.
By actively promoting student voice and student-driven initiatives, Lincoln School helps students build their sense of self-efficacy and the essential skills for citizens of a democratic, just and diverse society. Lincoln students have authentic opportunities to shape important school-wide decisions, organize programs, coordinate community activities and projects, and help one another discover their best selves.
Our students share a commitment to ethical, responsible engagement with the world around them.
Counseling, College and Career
Lincoln School graduates attend fine colleges and universities around the world. Beginning in 9th grade, the counseling department supports students and their families in envisioning their futures, working through the practicalities of entering post-secondary education, and choosing the best fit.
Our responsive Advisory and Counseling programs support the many and changing needs of our student body, encouraging meaningful reflection and self-knowledge, and emphasizing personal, social and global responsibility.
