Junior Grace Boghosian is one of over 900 students from 64 countries to be accepted into the fifth cohort of the Junior Academy, an initiative of the New York Academy of Sciences’ Global STEM Alliance (GSA).
You might find Upper School students collaborating with peers to troubleshoot the mechanisms of a student-designed robot, reciting Shakespeare monologues on stage, dissecting the meaning of a nuanced passage in a novel, or learning to fabricate metal sculptures at the Providence Steelyard. Through these experiences they learn that no field is out of their reach, no challenge too big to tackle.
Upper School students craft individualized academic programs based on their interests and passions, built around a robust core curriculum. Small classes allow our faculty to support each student in her intellectual development while fostering an engaging, collaborative, and supportive classroom environment. Over the course of their four years in Upper School, Lincoln students evolve into confident thinkers and doers who attend top colleges and go on to make an impact.
The Upper School offers a rich and diverse curriculum to students in Grades 9 through 12. Students advance through a challenging academic program that provides an exceptional grounding in English, history, world languages, mathematics, the sciences, technology, visual arts, music, theater, and physical and health education. A wide array of electives, honors courses, and interdisciplinary offerings add depth and breadth to the academic experience and allow students to chart their own course once they have completed core requirements in each discipline.
The Sophomore Speaker Series, a Lincoln School tradition, asks our Grade 10 students to speak up and speak out about a topic of their own particular personal passion. Usually running between 4 and 8 minutes, these talks are scheduled throughout the year and presented to their class peers.
Whether students are natural extroverts, unafraid to stand in front of their peers and say what's on their minds, or introverts for whom trusting their own voice is a learned skill, at every interval of our curriculum we put an emphasis on presentation an public speaking. Boldness can certainly be born, but here at Lincoln, we know it also can be built.
At Lincoln we build time for clubs into all students’ weekly schedules. Clubs allow girls to explore issues, develop new skills, or simply relax and have fun in the middle of a busy day. Don’t see one of interest? Maybe you’ll start your own.
Below is a list of 2019 Clubs. The list changes from year to year.
Green Key Society
Gender Straight Alliance
A capella Club
Friendship Bracelet Club
Dungeons and Dragons
Scary Stories Club
Several times a year our entire community comes together to explore different issues related to curriculum and current events. These events are organized by the Upper School students with support from the Center for Justice, Peace & Global Citizenship.
