8/7/2012otherEAST LINCOLN HIGH IS STILL SET IN THEIR OLD WAYS OF NOT ALLOWING ALL STUDENTS TO EQUALLY ACHIEVE IN ACADEMICS, AS WELL AS IN SPORTS. EVERYTHING IS BRUSHED UP UNDER THE RUG. PARENTS AND STUDENTS WHO HAVE WITNESSED UNFAIR AND UNJUST ACTS ARE SCARED TO SPEAK UP BECAUSE THEIR CHILD MAY BE PICKED ON BY TEACHERS AND STAFF. THEY NEED TO GRADUATE INTO THE FUTURE AND ALLOW ALL STUDENTS TO SUCCEED. THE WAY THEY CHOSE THEIR ATHLETES IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN UNFAIR. THEY USE THE "WHO YOU KNOW METHOD". THEY NEED NEW TEACHERS AND A PRINCIPAL. RACE AND MONEY PLAYS A BIG PART IN WETHER YOUR CHILD GETS AHEAD AT ELHS.
12/13/2011parentOur son wanted to transfer from Southlake to East Lincoln. Letting him transfer was one of the best things to happen in our family. Our son went from hating school to loving it and we have found the teachers to be more caring and supportive than the private school we were paying for. Great school, great principal and great teachers. Go Mustangs!
12/3/2010studentGoing to this school was one of the best decisions I ever made. I transferred here from Southlake at the beginning of my ninth grade year and found it to be much more challenging academically and nurturing socially. This school prepared me to attend one of the top colleges in the country, and because of the large amount of college credit classes offered, I am on a fast track to a graduate degree. The teachers are very caring and willing to work with students, and know their material very well. The sports teams are fantastic, and the size of the school means that even the less-athletic students still get an opportunity to be on the team. This school truly has the all-American high school experience, and I would not have traded it for the world. While there are some disciplinary problems with students (this is very rare), graduating students leave this institution very well prepared both academically and socially.
11/26/2010parentI have 2 children @ELHS for 1 1/2yrs. They were @ Lincoln Charter School for about 10 yrs before transferring to ELHS. While Lincoln Charter is a great school & has much better discipline, less violence&drugs, less students & uses the Core Knowledge Program as well as the Standard Course of Education, they don't have the sports, arts, and clubs that East Lincoln High offers. My children always felt safe at Lincoln Charter but safety has been a continuing concern at ELHS. My children transferred to ELHS to have an opportunity to be involved in more extra-curricular activities. I know, without a doubt, that students seeking education would benefit more from attending Lincoln Charter. Students more interested in extra-curricular activities have more opportunity at ELHS until Lincoln Charter School has more to offer. Lincoln Charter is growing quickly over the last 6 or so years. Students always need to be taught good morals and it is especially hard to encourage good morals when they attend a school that is not well-disciplined such as East Lincoln High School.
8/13/2009otheri was a student at elhs for one year. after i transfered from a school in naperville, il (NVHS) i was very disapointed in the education level. the teachers there dont know how to teach, coming into a pre-calculus class i knew more than the teacher did. if you want your child to get a good education and actually learn something i suggest you go to the charter school a few miles away.
4/26/2009studentI graduated from East Lincoln in 2007 and I would not have wanted to attend another school other than ELHS! Some of these reviews are ridiculous especially from the parents! I am currently in college and ELHS definitely prepared me for my matriculation. North Lincoln or Southlake can not compare to the experience you will get at East. East is a very well balanced institution.
4/6/2009studentHeck I am still a student currently enrolled at ELHS. The students aren't that bad, and some of the teachers aren't too great; but most of the school is great. Not every school is perfect but ELHS is one to go to. The band is awesome, and so are the sport teams. Of course we do get into some fights here; but since i've been enrolled I haven't been in a fight at ELHS or seen more than 5. ~Adam~
9/11/2008otherI'm an ELHS graduate with a sibling still attending east. I agree with the post under me that the administration doesn't care much about the schools in the county, but Southlake and North Lincoln are about the same calibur as East. East has just as many teachers that care greatly about their students and it's sports teams and bands are excellent. Of course ELHS has its problems, but what school doesn't? I am glad that I was lucky enough to go to East rather than most of schools nearby in char-meck district.
9/10/2008otherhello my name is Richard Jordan and if you know about elhs you know about me. I am a former student of East lincoln high and I loved every moment that i was there. the teachers are great. I have read the other revews and i believe that most of the people that put down elhs dont know a single thing about it . I would recomend elhs highley to any one.
8/27/2008parentIf you have other alternatives, please look at those. This is a school that had teachers that care about the students, but administration that cares about themselves. Poor discipline makes it next to impossible for students to learn(which occurs in classes other than the honors classes). If you are able, consider the charter, Southlake Christian Academy, or North before selecting East. A good place to read about past issues with school is at daforce.org.
1/28/2008parentThe parents lack of discipline is what makes this a bad school; my student is constantly bringing home horror stories about students behavior and how their parents allow it to continue. If it wasn't for the firm and fair administration that this school has, it would have fallen apart. Mr. Sargent in particular has done an outstanding job disciplining the students.
11/14/2007studentI am currently a junior at ELHS. The school administration does not to care about bettering either the school or the students in it. The Lunch that is edible is overpriced and still not very tasty. This is a great school if you are interested in band, but that is about all it has going for it.
6/4/2007parentAs a parent of a student at this school, I ma very disappointed in the school, teachers, and administrators. They expect very little from high school age children and are often rewarded with the behavior of middle school or elementary school school children. I wish that they would treat the students like they have a future beyond high school and prepare them properly. If you can avoid this school, I think it is wise!
1/9/2006parentI atteneded this school 9th through 11th grade(well, the half year of 11th grade.) I've found that all the teachers there are really caring and love their students. The teachers and staff are there for the students when they need them and for help under any kind of case. I would highly recommend East Lincoln High School to all the parents out there to put their children in.
1/4/2006former studentI attended this school as well. I have to say that i walked out on graduation day a little more than overjoyed to be finally leaving. The teachers were rude to the students, the academics were horrible, and the administration cared more about the little things than they did the things that seriously needed looked into and changed. This school did have a wonderful music department though. Dont get me wrong, I wouldnt trade my high school days for anything, but I believe I would have gained more if I would have attended another school.
2/15/2005former studentI loved this school. I attendeded 9th through 11th grade. I knew all the teachers and they really cared about the students. I felt like I was leaving home when i had to leave the school. I was a member of the Band and count it amoung the best days of my life. The sense of community and fellowship is awesome. Teachers mostly love what they are teaching. There are a few that have been there too long or should never have been teachers but overall the academic programs are excellent.
4/13/2004studentI attend this school too. The AP classes are great. The teachers that teach AP classes are wonderful too. The sports aren't great, but the athletes try hard. The band program has been known to be one of the best in the states, however, recently the school split, so the band is having to be rebuilt. The students are mostly nice. The principle really cares about the school and is working to get it back on its feet. The surrounding areas of East Lincoln are nice. The lake is just a few miles away, and Charlotte is close by.
8/10/2003former studentOverall, the school is fair. Teachers are a little below average, but the administration is fairly good. I attended this school and couldn't wait to get out. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
