Arts, Athletics, Activities


Students at Lincoln School can take advantage of various opportunities outside of the classroom to enhance their interests in the visual and performing arts.

Performing Arts

In the elementary school, our honor choir and rock band perform both in the school, as well as in the community. There is also a Young People’s Choir of Kathmandu Spring Retreat Weekend where students work with other singers their age from around the city singing songs and building community through music. The After-School Activities (ASAs) for all ages include music providers so that children can receive voice lessons and hone their skills on various musical instruments.

As an active member school of the Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS), Lincoln Middle & High School students are invited to participate in several international events including Honors Choirs, Honors Bands, and Solo & Ensemble Festivals. Zero-hour and after-school multi-age ensembles, such as band, choir, and rock/jazz band, encourage students to progress both independently and with others.

Upper-elementary, middle, and high school students are encouraged to be a part of our theatrical productions, both on and off stage. Our student-led and student-centered musicals and plays allow for singers, dancers, and actors, as well as those interested in stage management, lighting design, sound engineering, direction, or choreography.

There is a place for every student at Lincoln to explore and share their creativity.

Visual Arts

The secondary students have multiple opportunities to participate in the Visual Arts. Students can explore the use of various materials and a range of beginning to advance art-making methods with rotating monthly themes such as Printmaking, Photography, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Painting during Arts-based after school activities. Art Exhibitions take place twice a year at the end of each semester and are open to all students wanting to share their work. There are special events focusing on Social Practice Art as a means to create community through site-specific, experiential and interactive student-lead installations. These projects create community connections through art and allow students to visually communicate social issues that they find important. There are field trips to local art galleries and museums and chances to connect with local artists to learn about historical and contemporary art and culture in Kathmandu.
