Lincoln Alternative Elementary School Reviews
I had Mrs. Rodemeyer in 5th and 6th grade and she was definitetly my favorite teacher ever. I'm now a freshman in highschool and is still miss being in her class. She is a great teacher and really made learning fun for me. I really enjoyed her class and I hope I can go back and visit soon.
I am a parent at Lincoln and was happy that my son was attending such a great school. BEWARE, nothing is perfect. If you fit in to what they consider "normal" is then you will love the school and everything it has to offer. If you are outside what is considered "normal to them" such as a child with aspergers, ADD, ADHD and do not qualify for academic special education....BEWARE! That is when you see them turn their back. They will lie, cover up and sweep the problem under the carpet.
I do understand that there priority is the school as a whole but when they can watch a child with obvious problems get teased, made fun of, bullied by both staff and kids and still not be willing to not only help but cover it up. It makes me sick. Over guiding me in the direction to get help for my son, they chose to save money, I worry where there hearts are...
I am so blessed by Mrs Rodemeyer's 6th grade class! She has given my child such of great sense of accomplishment. She has encouraged her to stretch herself farther then she thought she could go. After homeschooling for 6 years, Lincoln was the only public school I was willing to consider, after wonderful recommendation from several friends. After 3 weeks of school I have not had any regrets at all!
I am thrilled my children were able to secure a spot at Lincoln. Lincoln has exceeded my expectations. After being at 3 other schools in the district I was pleasantly shocked by the curriculum and the general enviroment of the school. It is extremely important for me to be able to communicate with my childs teacher if so the need be and at Lincoln it is always an option. Also a main advantage at Lincoln is the professionalism of the staff in the front office. Not only is the staff proficient but also extremely welcoming and friendly.
