Above average public school. Only problem is the lack of adaptation to the pandemic. Neighboring private schools did a much better job at adapting and making sure students were staying at grade level standards. Not completely the fault of the school perhaps the district but enough to make us decide to seek a private education. Good resources and facilities and teachers seem relatively engaged, some more than others.
Our family is still rather new to Burlingame & we feel incredibly lucky to be part of Lincoln! While watching the whole school do the Lion's Roar at Friday's assemblies, enjoying delicious food prepared by Lincoln families from all over the world at International Night, cheering on students at the Walk-a-Thon or just walking alongside neighbors to school, we feel a real sense of community here. And, the teachers & principal are just incredible! All the children come out of our child's classroom at the end of the day bubbling over with excitement about Mars, Math Journals, publishing their writing, planting seeds in the school garden... It is a really special place.
Our children have both thrived at Lincoln over the past four years. We have felt supported by teachers in helping our children focus on the specific areas they are working to improve. Both children go skipping off to school every morning, because they are happy to be there. I love that our children have access to math & science specialists, music & art education, and PE. On top of that, the level of parent involvement is amazing. Even with many 2-working parent families, they show up for class parties, performances, and to help with garden lessons and evening STEAM events. We have had teachers with a variety of teaching styles, but they have all gone above and beyond to show how seriously they take their jobs and care about their students. The principal, Lori Guidi, is a former teacher and you can tell her heart is with the children, while she is focused on the school's academic performance - just this past year (2018) leading Lincoln to be awarded as a California Distinguished School.
Lincoln has a wonderful community of parents and teachers that have one common goal- educating and preparing children to be successful in the future. Lincoln is a warm and friendly environment, that includes passionate teachers and involved parents. Most kids walk to school and live close to the campus which fosters a tight community. I think kids and parents equally adore this school and the community around it.
