About Lincoln School

The William H. Lincoln School, located near Rt. 9 on Kennard Road, serves a diverse population of 565 students in grades Kindergarten through 8. By providing students with supports and challenges, it is our goal to prepare all students for success in high school and beyond.

Lincoln is home to many of the district’s Japanese English Language Learners and the Adaptive Learning Center, a program with students with profound disabilities. Lincoln is committed to Brookline’s core value of educational equity and high achievement for all. Our staff works collaboratively to provide engaging learning experiences for all students and to support students’ social-emotional growth.

Lincoln students can participate in a number of academic, artistic and athletic experiences before, during and after school. Our spring musical performance is always the hottest ticket in town and our sports teams strive for excellence in the classroom and on the playing fields. In addition to these opportunities, students can participate in various clubs and activities including Math League, the National Geography Bee, after-school enrichment courses.

Our school places a high value on building collaborative relationships through parent involvement. With the support of the PTO, we offer a wide variety of artistic performances, including music in the morning and lunch concerts, author/illustrator visits and residencies, the Gardner Museum series in grade one, and book fairs. Family events include school picnics, Pumpkinfest, Lincoln Reads Night, and Science Night. Teachers plan several breakfast shares and open houses for their classes to give families the opportunity to see first hand the dynamic work being done by their students.

A parent group plans a monthly First Friday Coffee for parents, teachers and community members that features speakers addressing topics of interest or school-wide initiatives.
