Life in the Upper School

It’s about challenging your mind, pursuing your interests, deepening friendships, building community, and finding your voice.

Life in the Upper School means…

  • Learning to be a leader through sports, student government, clubs and special events like the Quaker Youth Leadership Conference
  • Discussing and learning about sexuality, gender identities, and related issues, both at Lincoln and in the wider world, through the GSA (Gender Sexuality Alliance)
  • Getting involved with one or more of the countless clubs at Lincoln: Film Club, Girls Who Code, Debate Club, International Affairs Club, Mock Trial, ASL (American Sign Language), Green Key Society, School Newspaper, Literary Magazine, Improv, A Capella Singing, Chinese Culture Club and more.
  • Starting up your own club if you’ve got a great idea!
  • Sharing your academic and social plans, victories and challenges with your adviser and advising group.
  • Taking your learning beyond the Lincoln Campus, to RISD, Brown, India or Cuba.
  • Giving back to the community through the Senior Service Project and service clubs.
  • Championing and celebrating the goals of women and girls by helping to plan International Women’s Day and advocating and fundraising for girls who don’t have access to education.
Lincoln Students are the First All-Girls Team Ever

Four Lincoln students participated in the PBS High School Quiz Show: Rhode Island on Saturday as the first all-female team ever. This was a two-day single elimination tournament among eight qualifying high school teams.

A Weekend of Approaching Problems Outside the Classroom: Brown University Simulation of the United Nations

Lincoln was well represented at the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations (BUSUN) this weekend. Students from around the world participated on the Brown campus for a weekend of informed, exciting debate. A central feature was to introduce delegates to issues and subject matters that may be less well-known but nonetheless important with a goal of building the foundations for becoming critical thinkers and articulate and diplomatic speakers.

At Lincoln, Today is Not Just a Day—It's A Movement

Today is International Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to helping girls everywhere to be seen as equals both in the eyes of others and in their own eyes. And while setting aside a particular day provides a rallying point around which to mobilize, when you're a part of an institution that puts girls first, the work is year round.
