* About Our School

Abraham Lincoln Elementary School offers an exciting learning environment for students in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade.

At Abraham Lincoln Elementary, the staff implements consistent and developmentally appropriate curriculum and methodologies to meet the needs of all students. Our classroom teachers are skilled at providing differentiated instruction, a process that guarantees all students will be challenged to learn at their own levels--beginning, developing and expanding. We emphasize positive behavior support and maintain a climate where students and staff feel safe and valued. Technology is an important part of all we do. Most important of all, computers in the classroom and the computer lab are used for hands-on learning and exploration. Parents and guardians are important partners in the learning process. We have an active PTO and encourage volunteer involvement at all levels in our school.

We invite you to learn more about our school by exploring this site. Whether you are a current member of the Abraham Lincoln "Family," a prospective homeowner, or an alumni returning for a cyberspace homecoming, Abraham Lincoln Elementary School welcomes you!
