Lincoln-Way Community High School is committed to maximizing the academic and social growth of all students. This mission statement reflects our goals of academic achievement and social aptitude for all Lincoln-Way students, today as it did 60 years ago.
Today Lincoln-Way provides honors, advanced placement, college prep and individualized programs for grades nine through twelve in the fundamental areas of learning identified by the State of Illinois; mathematics, reading, science, social science, physical education, health, English and writing. In addition, programs are offered including agriculture, business, career and technology, family and consumer science, arts, world languages, music and Air Force Junior ROTC.
Student achievement is our priority at all four Lincoln-Way high schools. The graduation rate for the district is 96.2 percent. More than 88 percent of our students continue their formal education after high school. Our students place in the top 11 percent of the 656 Illinois high schools on the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE), while our per pupil expenditure is among the lowest in the six-county Chicagoland area.
In a continued effort to provide the highest quality instruction possible, district administrators encourage teachers to experience and engage new methods of teaching by providing in-house staff development opportunities. Teachers who are devoted to student achievement and share their passion for learning embrace the goal to provide an excellent education for all of our students.
