Welcome to Lincoln School of Science & Technology!
Dear Lincoln Community,
Located in beautiful Canon City, CO, Lincoln School of Science & Technology brings unique educational opportunities to your student. Lincoln School emphasizes a strong science program, as well as, utilizes up to date technology to strengthen instruction across literacy, mathematics, social studies, and life skills (art, music, physical education, technology). Hands-on science instruction is bolstered through our consistent use of Foss Science Kits, weekly experiments in our very own science laboratory; plus, Super Science Fridays. Instructional staff designs standards-based authentic science lessons that bring together our entire school to focus on science exploration. Every classroom is outfitted with a Promethean® Interactive Whiteboard which allows teachers to utilize multimedia lessons and access worldwide learning. Weekly video announcements enhance building culture, which spotlights student accomplishments. Additionally, technology is at our students' fingertips with 1-to-1 HP Stream® laptop devices and Android® tablets.
Lincoln School prides itself on creating strong academic programs that support all students. For the last 6 years, Colorado Department of Education has rated Lincoln School ‘Performance’, which is the highest rating obtainable for an individual school. We have above average growth in both reducing the number of students who show a significant reading deficiency, while also increasing the number of students at and above grade level expectations on the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) assessment. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure all students, no matter their ability, are able to learn and grow into well-rounded citizens.
Since 1990, I have had the pleasure of working with the Lincoln School community as both an educator and an administrator. I have witnessed firsthand, the staff’s belief of promoting learning by treating each other with dignity and respect. It is with a sense of pride that our school represents the same characteristics as the man in which our school is named, Abraham Lincoln. Honesty, persistence, a demeanor in which love is better than hate, and the collective responsibility of the importance of an education are demonstrated at Lincoln School of Science & Technology.
