Calling All Techie Lady Cards!


Applications for the National Center for Women & IT's Award for Aspirations in Computing are open through November 2nd. Technical young women at Lincoln are encouraged to apply. LHS alum Vicki Niu, a 2013 recipient of this award, reports, "Winning the award was an incredible experience for me and opened countless doors: I would love for more of the Lincoln community to gain access to the incredible options available through NCWIT. Feel free to pass along my contact information to any interested girls: I would love to talk to them if they're interested in the award, or even in computing in general!"

We are pleased to announce that the Lincoln High School Business Department and Portland State University School of Business have established a partnership allowing Lincoln’s business students concurrent enrollment in both high school and college classes. At Lincoln High School, PSU’s School of Business now offers Personal Finance and Introduction to Business courses.  Upon successful completion of a class, eligible students will earn PSU credit. This credit will be officially recorded on a PSU transcript and is highly transferrable nationally.


On Monday, October 20th, eleven Personal Finance students concurrently enrolled in both high school and college classes, visited PSU’s School of Business. Erica Wagner, the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs, and Jennifer Loney, a Business Professor, graciously treated our students to pizza and engaged them in an hour long meaningful conversations pertaining to their career choices. After lunch, Ron, the business student ambassador, acted as a tour guide for our students. We toured many facilities including the dorms, but the most meaningful was the tour of the Lincoln Hall. The highlight of the visit, was attending a Personal Finance class taught by Melody Bell.  Melody was teaching Investing during our stay and our students were engaged in the instruction by participating in an interactive activity that required them to answer this question “Do I pay off debt or invest in 401k?”  


Thank you to PSU for providing our students with this unique opportunity! Thank you to Lincoln Personal Finance and Business teacher Dana Guest for her leadership and providing this update.

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,
