Lincoln Elementary School is a neighborhood school serving the population of southwestern Augusta. Lincoln is one of the newest schools in Augusta having opened in September of 1988.
Lincoln meets the varied needs of its students through a variety of programs. In addition to the fourteen regular classes there are: a gifted and talented program, a Title One program, a Project Pride program, a computer lab, a library/media center, a variety of special education programs and Art, French, Music and Physical Education programs. Lincoln's staff works hard to provide an academic program which challenges students to achieve to their highest potential.
Attending school regularly is important to academic success for our students. We emphasize this to our students and share with our parents our monthly daily attendance average as we work together in their collaboration. We will continue to recognize Perfect Attendance by the month. We found this to be successful last school year and motivating for students. For the month of November, our daily average was 93.60%. Our monthly goal is 94%. We are slightly below our monthly goall! During November, we had 120 students with Perfect Attendance. Their names will be prominently posted next to our Attendance Graph in the entryway. We are asking families to help us reach this goal by having your child attend school regularly and on time. Establishing consistent routines at home such as checking student planners, a place to do homework, and going to bed at a good time will contribute to student success.
Lincoln School NECAP Data
Our NECAP (New England Comprehensive Assessment Program) results for 2012/ 2013 are in. These are the state standardized assessments that students in grades 3-6 take yearly over math and reading. Students in 5th grade take a writing test in addition to the math and reading. We are proud to say that our students’ scores went up in math and writing: Math 57%, up from 53% and Writing 57%, up from 35%. Our reading scores took a slight dip: Reading 67%, down from 76%. We are very proud of the work being accomplished at Lincoln! We will still continue to focus our professional development around math and writing for this year and we will take a close look at our interventions for our kiddos who need additional support.

Lincoln School Report Card
Recently, the Maine Department of Education assigned a grade to schools. The grade is based on our NECAP (New England Comprehensive Assessment Program) three-year average scores in reading and math. The scores reflect the school’s overall students who met/exceeded proficiency, students who showed growth, and the growth of the students who scored in the bottom 25% from the previous year. Lincoln’s overall grade was a C, with a total of 267 points. We are 13 points from reaching a B (280 points). Lincoln staff will continue its efforts with improving instruction in the areas of math, reading, and writing as well as providing our students with direct support to meet their academic needs.
