[September 12, 2016]  LINCOLN - ACT Research has shown that it is the rigor of coursework, rather than simply the number of core academic courses, that has the greatest impact on ACT performance and college readiness.

In order to ensure that all students are ready for college, Lincoln Community High School has:

1. Created a Common Focus. The district has established collaborative partnerships with local and state postsecondary institutions to come to a shared understanding of what students need to know for college readiness.

2. Established High Expectations for All. The district has created a school culture that identifies and communicates the need for all students to meet or exceed Benchmark Scores.

3. Requires a Rigorous Curriculum. The district reviews and evaluates the rigor and alignment of courses offered and required in English, mathematics, and science.

4. Provides Student Counseling. The district engages all students in early college and career awareness, helping them to set high aspirations, and ensure that they plan a rigorous high school coursework program.

5. Measures and Evaluates Progress. The district monitors and measures every student’s progress early and often using college readiness assessments like the ACT.

Lincoln Community High School is proud to announce 132 high school seniors participated in the ACT test during the 2015 – 2016 school year. The table below shows how our students achieved vs. the state average.
