Starting Off Strong
The 2015-2016 school year is off to a great start. Thousands of students at each Lincoln-Way High School joined with their cheerleaders, marching bands, athletic teams, club leaders, teachers and principals at their opening day pep rallies to show their school pride and celebrate their high school experience. If you missed our Opening Day video, click here.
Our commitment to academic excellence is evident by the success of our students. Recently, we received a report from the College Board that Lincoln-Way had a total of 363 AP Scholars this past year, including 15 National AP Scholars. This distinction certainly provides students with a competitive advantage in college. Additionally, our district’s composite ACT score among 2015 seniors was the best in three years at 22.8. The national average is 20.7. Three of our students, Sabrina Corsetti, Dario Panici and Julia Monti, earned a perfect 36 on their ACT.
As we begin the transition process, moving from four high schools to three in the 2016-2017 school year – it will be our students who guide the way. I’ve met with many of our student leaders already and we will continue to seek their input and ask them what they need during the one-year transition process.
Already, our Lincoln-Way students know each other. They march together in parades; they compete with each other in sports; they attend summer school together – they are ONE Lincoln-Way. I’m confident that when the transition takes place, students will rise to the occasion.
We appreciate the support of our parents and community members as we work together to provide Lincoln-Way students with every academic and social opportunity to succeed. Thanks to those who came out for our Community Nights to see a preview of our fall athletic and music programs and to Back to School Nights to meet their child’s teachers and experience life as a high school student at Lincoln-Way.
