Each student is expected to achieve at a high level of academic performance, function effectively in the community, and contribute to the broader society.
Academically, Lincoln was awarded the Academic Achievement Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Education in 2005 for continuous success on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).
