Knights, Griffins, and Warriors are offered a variety of options in both academics and extracurricular activities. Our students are able to choose from 34 (of the possible 38) Advanced Placement courses, 143 elective courses, 70 activities, and 28 sports. Year after year, our students receive local, state, and national recognition for their dedication to academics and athletics.
District 210 graduation rates have repeatedly exceeded state averages, and have risen to the high 90s since 2013. We are committed to further growing our AP opportunities to prepare our students for college-level work and give them a competitive advantage in their careers. Each year, our teachers efficiently prepare students for state testing through dedicated classroom practice and free study sessions hosted at each of our high schools.
Catering to individual student needs has allowed our district to consistently rank in the top ten percent academically across the state. Our Educational Opportunities (Ed Ops) Program provides support for at-risk students who might not otherwise graduate; the program provides assistance to teenagers, helping them earn course credits primarily through individualized learning and computer-based instruction.
Our LIFE Transition program serves students with special needs at Lincoln-Way Central, and has more than doubled in enrollment since inception. The program is designed to meet the individual needs of students receiving special education services who have met their graduation requirements, but continue to need more intensive instruction in the area of transition. Students benefit from the functional, hands-on instruction and meaningful life skills experiences in a natural setting.
Lincoln-Way students are highly engaged in our top-notch athletic, music, and extra-curricular programs because we offer many options catering to various interests. Our students are also committed to service, volunteering for countless hours each year in order to better their community.
