Important Information


We are currently experience problems sending emails to Comcast email accounts. Ms. Chapman is still sending several emails per day. If you are not receiving any emails, please contact our school secretary via email at cpennington@pps.net or 503-916-5200  if you would like to provide an alternate email address.

Students with Late Arrival, Early Dismissal or Open Period.  Students who have a period of the day in which they are not scheduled into a class must remain off campus.  At this point in time we do not have a quiet place to study on campus.  The cafeteria and library are reserved for classes.  Students may be in the halls during passing time only.  When classes are in session, students are not allowed to be in the halls without a hall pass.  Students in violation of this expectation will be assigned after-school detention.   If a student  does not have 8 classes they are encouraged to meet with their counselor to add an additional class.

Planner Correction

There are two errors in the planner that students and parents need to be aware of:

Message from the Principal


Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,

Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top 100 college prep International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving, Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Business, Culinary Arts, International Studies and Spanish Immersion programs. In addition to Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German, Lincoln is excited to be one of a handful of schools in the nation to offer Arabic to high school students.

Our students are actively involved inquirers who think critically about the world in which they live. In addition, Lincoln students regularly participate in highly competitive 6A athletics, a host of club sports from Water Polo to Sailing and Lacrosse, and are involved in a variety of engaging and meaningful extra-curricular activities and community service projects here and abroad. Our community is one in which “parents and neighbors are welcome partners”. Parent volunteerism at Lincoln is unparralled.

Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be smart.” We are fortunate to be able to offer a rigorous core academic program and our expectation is that students are supported to explore, play, and discover their passions to build the skills they need to gain confidence and feel success. The Lincoln community then works collaboratively to provide opportunities to connect student interests and skills to the world around them to create purpose and meaning. Lincoln values the whole child, providing academic advising and college counseling as well as evidenced based social-emotional, special education, ELL, and mental health supports as needed.

Finally, Lincoln consistently earns top ratings for academic achievement, attendance and high graduation rates. Lincoln students regularly meet and exceed international benchmarks on IB exams as well as state tests. Lincoln is proud to support and produce amazing graduates who go on to pursue a wide variety of exciting opportunities. As Principal I am honored to serve the Lincoln community. Please contact me at peytonc@pps.net if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. Come join the Cardinal “Flock" and explore some of our student and alum successes at www.lincolnflock.org. We encourage you and your student to join our inclusive community.


With Warm Regards,
