Lincoln High School – One of Portland highest rated schools
Lincoln High School in the Goose Hollow neighborhood is within the Portland School District.
It is, in the words of one reviewer from the Great Schools website, large enough to provide the full high school experience while still small enough that everyone knows each other. Lincoln is full of different ethnicities and socioeconomic classes and this diversity creates an excellent opportunity to teach students to value all perspectives. The school features special focus options in International Studies and is the first ever high school in the Portland education system to offer a Spanish Immersion Program which begins at Ainsworth Elementary and continues through West Sylvan Middle School. The school offers advanced coursework in courses like English and Science and also offers the International Baccalaureate program. In addition to the standard array of team sports, club sports like rugby and snowboarding are also available.
Lincoln offers over fifty special interest clubs that have been designed by students. This gives most students the opportunity to act in a leadership role, something that parents of the Great Schools website really appreciated they rated it 4/5.. Overall the website gave the school 10/10. Lincoln High School is located at 1600 SW Salmon in Portland.
