School Reviews

5   3/23/2020
I have wonderful many memories of Lincoln Elementary, having attended there in 4th and fifth grades, around 1957 through 1959. Mrs. Russell stands out in this seventy-year-old's memory as a wonderful teacher, bright and very musical, who left a lifetime impression on me. I love this city. The steep and dismal decline of El Centro, as reflected in the crime rate, lack of diversity and the test scores here is a source of deep grief to me. What went wrong? Best wishes.
