Serving Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, the Lincoln School ensures that positivity thrives as we carefully guide our students to greater heights.

Students are taught to be accountable, responsible and to lead with integrity. Our teachers are US certified. Every year Standardized testing is given to each student to determine academic performance compared with others in the same grade level using the same curriculum worldwide. Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities to build a strong and healthy community. We pride ourselves as a strong athletic school. We discover talented athletes among our students and groom them to play for international teams.
