Middle School Opportunities

In addition to our core curriculum, Middle School girls have the opportunity to engage in unique programs and select electives classes each semester, learning that they have agency in their educational journey.

Signature Programs

Exposure and experience is a key component of a Lincoln education and we are proud to offer hand-designed and unique opportunities to our Middle School Students:

  • Health & Wellness: Through our curriculum, all students learn and practice skills for success as a learner, building community and managing friendships and relationships, celebrating their identities and the identities of others, and how to care for themselves - body, heart, and mind.

  • Innovation Nation: Each April, the entire Middle School participates in our annual Middle School Design Thinking program–Innovation Nation, a partnership with Bryant University.

  • Cafe Collective: Rooted in the Center’s three spheres of social justice (racial, environmental, and gender), the CAFE Collective encompasses the Middle School’s work on diversity, equity, inclusion, and community. 

  • Steel Yard: Lincoln School has partnered with The Steel Yard to offer hands-on experiences to our Middle School students in jewelry making. In Upper School they will be able to also have experiences with metalworking.
