For a school which is pretty mid tier, the teachers are amazing, and you can tell almost all of them love their jobs and their students. Going here is... an experience to say the least, and I hope it can improve even more in the future!

I love this school and the teachers. I hope this school strives in the future. They should honestly work on having pre algebra classes for 8th graders.

As a parent, I want my child to be challenged, educationally, motivated by POSITIVE reinforcement and feedback, to feel excited about the things he/she is learning, all while in an environment that is caring and safe. If you're looking for a school that meets that description, then run, don't walk, in another direction!!! While at Lincoln, my son, (who was in the Honors program at his elementary school) became lazy and disinterested in learning. He was assigned 1 hour of homework PER WEEKristen on average, the majority of his teachers were uncaring, uninvolved and detached. I tried on several occasions to address my concerns with his teachers and when I received apathetic responses, I reached out to the school's principal... after 4 messages, I still never received a callback! We took our son to a tutor, hoping that it was the answer, howe've received that's when we were alerted to the real issue at hand: our son was being bullied mercilessly. The staff was aware of the situation! On several occasions, my son was told to "quit whining", "no one likes a tattle tale" and 1 teacher told him that, "being picked on is a rite of passage" and that, "it will make you stronger"!!!! NEVER were we alerted! Not once did we receive a note, email, phone call... NOTHING! My son was made to feel as though he was wrong to complain and we were in the dark! Once we learned of this situation, my son told us stories, (substantiated by other students AND parents!) of drug use in the bathrooms, children having "relations" in the bathrooms and what turned out to be a SERIOUS gang problem! **Recently a child brought A LOADED GUN to school!!!** This school is in a suburban of Chicago, but has the problems of a South Side school! Berwyn is better than that! Our tax dollars are far too high to have sub-par schools with the teachers who must've received C's and D's in college!! The school needs a complete overhaul! The people of Berwyn are given a choice of schools and many families cannot afford to pay for private schools or out of district schools! Give your child a fighting chance to succeed! Do NOT send them to Lincoln Middle school if you can avoid it!
