  • This is a great school and challenges your children. Our child started 2nd grade here, and she has learned so much. They require children to be respectful. If your child is disruptive, they will be asked to leave. We love this school! It's focus is on learning, not babysitting kids who lack self control.

  • Be very sure that your child will thrive in a staunchly rigamented, highly structured, teacher-centric learning environment before you send your child here.

    The academic standards are very high which puts a great deal of pressure on the children and the parents.

    Also the teacher quality is inconsistent. We had a wonderful Kindergarten teacher and a sub par 1st grade teacher (also from talking to many other parents, not too many of the 1st grade teachers seemed that great)

    My daughter doesn't do her best work in class because she constantly feels rushed. If she doesn't get her assignments done, she looses recess - so of course she rushes through and does a half effort job. I have to reteach on a regular basis. Be prepared to put in ALOT of effort at home to have your child perform up to par at this school!

    Bottom line, wheareas the Traditional education model works well for some it is NOT always a good fit for all.

  • I went to Abraham Lincoln Traditional School during the 2009-2010 school year as an eighth grader. This was the worst school I had ever been to, by far. I was an excelling student there and was part of their basketball team and the Treasurer of their National Junior Honor Society. I graduated from ALTS with a 3.7 GPA. At first the school seemed ok, but challenging. But over the year I began to notice that most of my teachers were always upset with kids that had done nothing wrong, but asked questions on the subject and punished them. They also favored children that had been there longer (older kids) and seperated anyone newer. The teachers refered to us as "newbies" and constantly set new kids up to appear unintelligent by asking questions on subjects they had not taught to the newer students. When I said they favored the children that were there longer, I meant that they allowed them to get away with not doing or completing assignments and still get A's and B's on thoughs assignments which is one of the reasons for why they are an excelling school. Where as newer kids had to write more then expected to get the same grade. Also when it comes to English, your student will have to classify sentences which they do not go over in class and instead your student will have to go to tutoring for 20 minutes every morning except Friday was the scedule, but the teachers were hardly ever there in the morning. Tutoring did not help me or my brother all that much and other kids just failed until they finally got it. Then we would move on to the next set in the process. My English teacher, Mrs. Griggs (Jennifer Griggs) specifically said to the parents," We do not want to hold the other students back that had been there longer." My younger brother was forced to leave the school after being publicly humiliated by his reading teacher over asking a question (aren't you suppose to ask questions?). My teachers specifically told children that where not excelling not to return the following year. So they dicourage those who needed the extra help as though they were a burden. This is yet another reason for why they are able to continue to call themselves an excelling school. Finally, this school never tested me for anything such as Geometry, eventhough I had taken Algebra 1 the year before at another school. So I had to listen to things I had already learned, which means I wasted a year of schooling relearning everything! The only time I had learned anything was during the last week of school, but, I had to take a test for highschool the weekend before. So in conclusion, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE IF YOU LOVE THEM AND WANT THEM TO SUCCEED! If you do send your child or children there, then BELIEVE WHAT THEY TELL YOU BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LIEING!
