From The Head
Thank you for visiting Lincoln School's home on the World Wide
Web. Whether you are a current parent coming for day-to-day information,
a student visiting a teacher's web page, an alumna seeking information
of events and former classmates, or a prospective family exploring
the possibility of admission, we trust you will find the information
you are looking for.
We believe that an exemplary school is a place where
each student has every opportunity to maximize her potential, where
every teacher looks for the best in each student, and where the
culture is built upon compassion and respect for the worth of every
In our classrooms and in every venue at Lincoln, we experience
an enhanced intellectual, emotional and physical
"presence" on the part of our girls. This is so because all that
our girls are doing - exploring plate tectonics, scoring a goal,
interpreting a poem, debating a school or international issue,
or learning new music - they are doing on their own terms. Girls
learn in unique ways that only an all-girls' environment can nurture.
Our Quaker heritage provides each Lincoln girl with a foundation
for self-reflection, commitment to service beyond self, and an
awareness and celebration of that which is distinctive in others.
Built upon that foundation is the conviction that girls - all girls
- deserve the very best a school has to offer.
