As the only girls' school based on Quaker values in the United States, Lincoln honors the value of each individual while centering the Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship (SPICES).

Uniforms

The green-and-blue plaid kilt (or jumper) has long been a symbol of attendance at Lincoln School.

The uniform is worn with pride, and acts as a reminder of the value of both simplicity and equity, as well as the sisterhood that bonds Lincoln School students, both past and present.
