A message from the superintendent

After several school years were disrupted by the pandemic, the Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 students and staff were thrilled to return for the 2021-2022 school year with a renewed motivation and drive to make the most out of the year.  I am proud to be a part of this wonderful school community that, over the years, has taken the rich tradition of student success to the next level.  Some recent highlights from this fantastic District include:

  • All three Lincoln-Way schools are academically ranked among the top 10% in the state, earning the summative designation of 'Exemplary' on the Illinois State Report Card
  • Over half of our students are involved in early college coursework
  • We have seen 43% growth in the number of AP exams taken since 2015
  • Students saved approximately $5 million in college tuition by earning a score of 3, 4 or 5 on their AP exams and by enrolling in our dual credit programs
  • 85% of our graduating seniors enroll in a 2 or 4 year college instruction within 16 months
  • Over 80% of our students participate in at least one activity
  • Our Lincoln-Way Marching Band was invited to participate in the 2021 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Our many accomplishments are a direct result of our students' and teachers' shared commitment to success.  When students graduate from our high schools, they are equipped with the tools they need to thrive in a variety of settings, regardless of their choice in career path.  The Board of Education, administration, and faculty embrace the optimism and promise of this upcoming school year, and we look forward to working with our school community to continue the tradition of student success at Lincoln-Way.
