Lincoln Academy Ratings & Reviews

The academy at lincoln for non - VSN students is not great. Especially in sixth grade ! My daughter is superb in language arts. The teacher does not teach advanced language arts. It's the teacher shouting her lungs out to get the kids attention in her class. Most of these kids in my daughters class don't listen . They have very bad behavior. My child feels like the kids are being treated like juveniles . She feels that she is being dumbed down. Some teachers on her side as they call it are lazy. Some teachers have very bad attitudes and tempers. Some of them are chill. The principals are always on her side. My daughter wants to be challenged , she comes from a very nice home. She has a bright future. The VSN side, is free nice and smart. But there is some friction between them. But there are something's each side non VSN and VSN are better at. I feel some kids on the non VSN side are only there because of race and first impressions. But at the end of the day your learning. But all I know is my daughter is not going back to lincoln next year.

Both of our kids have attended Lincoln in the VSN program in grades 4-8. We are extremely grateful to the school for contributing to the development of 2 strong independent-minded students with superior study habits. Are all teachers equally stellar? No, but all are engaged and some have been "Golden Apple" quality. The band and theatre programs have been huge assets as well. While it may not have all the opportunities of a $10-20K/year private school, the experience of being in a group of like-minded students from an early age is invaluable. The friends my kids have made are exceptional people and they are extremely comfortable being smart together. There is occasionally talk about friction between the general students and the VSN kids, but if anything it toughened up my slightly sensitive children and exposed them to a wider range of students than the would have been at a private school. Plus, many of the non-vsn kids are stellar performers in their own right, as seen clearly in drama and musical performances, which instills some needed humility in the VSN crowd. The front office and counseling staff have been absolutely superb as well. Would not hesitate to send them back.

My daughter recently joined the 5th grade VSN program at Lincoln. She was invited to the 4th grade last year, but I didn't feel that she was ready for such a demanding program. At first the transition was really overwhelming for her. She needed levels of commitment and organization that vastly exceeded those of her prior school and the learning curve was quite painful for both of us. However, with the considerable help and understanding of her many teachers she has navigated the initial rough waters and is now doing quite well, with her performance on a continuing upward trajectory. So, what are our observations? As others have said it is not for the faint of heart. No grade inflation to be found here, no near automatic As. Mediocre work is greeted with comments such as "this is not VS", and low marks. The teachers have high expectations, but provide tremendous support when needed. Homework is extensive and demanding. School days are often 12 hours in total. It's a throwback to an earlier age of education where self esteem is earned not given, and where learning transcends all other aspects- an unexpected gem for those who want the best academic experience for their children.

We've been at Lincoln for less than 2 full months and I am already counting down to next year when we can move my child back to our zone. I knew this was a rigorous program which would require extra school work but I had no idea the ridiculous nature of some of it. My child spends hours & hours doing homework and her previous straight A's are now C's. She's exhausted and overwhelmed. It's not that my child isn't smart enough - it's that she' s a perfectionist and there is so much emphasis on "VSing" assignments (meaning doing more than the status quo) to get an A that she's killing herself in trying to make her work look perfect in every way. Communication is so "good" it's bad: a 3 page weekly newsletter combined with countless notes home and papers to sign are more than I have the bandwith to sort through. And the school might be publicly funded, but there are plenty of other small expenses that will nickle & dime you to death (we've been asked for $$ weekly). The drop-off/pick-up line is atrocious (I was spending 2+-3 hrs a day on drop-off/pick-up) - so we switched to the bus which is worse. My child spends 2 1/2 hrs on the bus/day - that's a 10 hr day start to finish!

The traffic situation is terrible at this school! Unless you want to spend an hour each way picking up and dropping off your student, don't go to this school!
