Lincoln High is the awesomest school ever. I love this school so much. I am not supposed to go to Lincoln High but I am getting a transfer. They have an awesome music program and they have the IB program. Also they have a very good drama department. I would recommend this school to all of the band geeks, since I am one myself, and also to students who wish to have a career as an actor. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
