Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Families,

Today and tomorrow we honor our departed family members for Dia De Los Muertos.

Today also marks the beginning of the second quarter. Final grades for the first quarter will be viewable in PowerSchool this Friday.

Some students will have a new schedule for Q2. Students should check PowerSchool to determine if there is a change in their schedule.

Thank you to all parents who are making sure your student is getting to school on time. Last week we instituted tardy sweeps and are seeing improvements in the number of students who are on time to class.

Sign up for Lincoln High "BASKETBALL TRYOUTS"!

Date: November 6, 2021

Day of the Week: Saturday
Time: 12:00 PM

Requirement: For All Student-Athletes wanting to learn and play High School basketball and beyond to an elite national level during the summer and all the way up to a college career!! All students must have a physical.

We hold tryouts to ensure prospective student-athletes possess a sufficient level of skill and athleticism to successfully absorb and execute a demanding basketball training.

A player only needs to attend and practice while working harder each practice to excel and compete at a higher level during games.

Why is Lincoln High School difference? Because its ran different - like a true Basketball Academy for "FOUR" years of hard work while maintaining academics toward a college education and where all level of players trained the very same to succeed.

If playing college basketball is a goal - then the coaches goals are simple. Players development, fundamentals, and athletic training and skills will match up with all players.
We understand that basketball is about tacticians, outstanding footwork, great understanding of the importance of angles, situational awareness, spacing, and amazing fundamentals.

Whether a game or practice players will be taught skills by training everyday (Except Sunday) for 2-3 hours for 4 years.

Lincoln High School trains on a daily basis where the areas of focus are different then most - with more time spent on all aspects of DEFENSIVE concepts and drills. Offensive plays, footwork, movement with and without the ball, and technical understanding of fundamentals. Also, to help ALL Student-Athletes with a significant competitive advantage. The following will be emphasized everyday, a breakdown on the games fundamentals with a detail teaching from ABC blocks perspective with the basics like a defensive stance, defensive footwork, offensive footwork, ball movement and angles, spacing, passing, ball handling, rebounding and proper shooting technique. All the way up to advanced teaching blocks like situational shooting techniques, pick and roll execution and defense, help defense concepts and fundamentals, player movement without the ball, double team technique, how to rebound against bigger opponents etc. We also focus heavily on strength and conditioning, speed and agility, and reflexive and flexibility training. Our primary goal is to make such fundamentally basketball minded player during high school and that college coach would love to have them on their team. Most importantly it will be a FAMILY atmosphere for all 4 years.

All Coaches have experiences in coaching and developing players of all ages and levels: Pro, College/Prep level, High School, Middle School, and AAU/BCI grass-roots levels for 30+ years.
Players are trained by coaches that have had world class players and have had players become Head Coaches as well.

College & Career Pathways

Project Based Learning allows students to experience core academic content by actively engaging in projects that are personally meaningful to them. The Center for Medical & Emergency Services team brought students together for a Project Launch with a surprise guest (virtual) appearance! Students will be exploring the essential questions, “What barriers exist for students in achieving physical and mental health?” “How does exercise and nutrition affect performance and well being?” This exploration will begin by choosing a focus for their own project with establishing baseline data. Students will research a variety of factors that impact physical and mental health and create hypothesis based on a factor they would like to test to improve their own well being. Students will execute that plan for a span of 30 days and journal their progress and results and then analyze their own data. Students will show case their learning in podcasts and on a YouTube channel to share with their community.
