The Basic Tenets of Lincoln School

Integrity of the Individual

Our philosophy begins with the basic assumption that each student operates from that which is good within her. Each student is provided an opportunity for independence appropriate to her age and developmental level. Hand in hand with independence go responsibility and loyalty to the basic tenets of the community. If a student's behavior violates these tenets, review of the situation by the Head of School in consultation with her advisor, her parents, Division Head, and Honor Council will include the consideration of separating her from the School.

A Lincoln Student is expected to:

  • be honest in her work, actions, speech, and ownership.
  • respect the privacy of others' feelings and property.
  • extend courtesy and concern for every individual.
  • respect and protect the School's facilities and reputation.
  • attend with punctuality every class, appointment, or assigned commitment.
  • uphold and abide by the laws of the land, and not possess, use, or transfer any controlled chemical substances.
  • respect and abide by the rules of any school which she visits, and expect the same of her visitors.
