Upcoming Events


The Lincoln High School class of 2015 would like to invite our fantastic parent volunteers to the annual May Fete assembly this Thursday, May 28th at 9:40 in the gymnasium. 


  Pick a Cardinal , pick any Cardinal -   that is a Cardinal magnet –  and find out how much you save on your purchase from your surprise savings hidden under each Card.

Get ready for summer – we still have shorts, women’s tank tops,  t-shirts, sleep pants and for the cooler evenings, lots of socks, sweat pants and sweatshirts.

The store will be only be open this Friday May 29th and next Friday June 5th from 11:15 AM to 2 PM and then closed for the summer.   Remember, all proceeds benefit all students at LHS.

Lincoln Alumni

College graduation is a time for celebration, promise, and reflection. Was there a special teacher at Lincoln who made a difference along the way? Would you like to surprise them with an acknowledgement that will be treasured? 

Send a Tribute Card

It's not often that teachers receive a thank-you for the motivation or patience that they have provided a student, and they would love to share in the joy of accomplishment that your family is experiencing right now.  Send them a personal note along with a gift that helps keep class sizes manageable - by making a contribution to the Lincoln Foundation in their name. 

A card acknowledging your contribution (but not the dollar amount) and your personal note will be sent to your honoree. This is a really big hit with those receiving your cards.

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,
