Message From the Principal

Welcome to the Lincoln website.  I hope you find the new layout and navigation options helpful.

The mission of Lincoln Middle School is:  to meet the intellectual and developmental needs of young adolescents in a positive, safe, and multidisciplinary environment, and to prepare them for a socially responsible life in a changing global society.

That is to say, we recognize that our students are going through, arguably, the most dramatic period of change in their lives, and we empower them to better a rapidly changing world.  As a middle school, we follow the tenets of the Association of Middle Level Education (AMLE – formerly the National Middle School Association, http://www.amle.org/) which believes an education for young adolescents must be:

 

  • Developmentally Responsive

Using the nature of young adolescents as the foundation on which all decisions are made

  • Challenging

Recognizing that every student can learn and everyone is held to high expectations

  • Empowering

Providing all students with the knowledge and skills they need to take control of their lives

  • Equitable

Advocating for every student's right to learn and providing challenging and relevant learning opportunities

Through our core academics, expansive elective offerings, social/academic supports, extracurricular activities, and tremendous community support, Lincoln remains at the forefront of national middle school programs. 

If you would like to learn more about Lincoln, or have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am happy to help.

Best Regards,

Dr. Murray
