History
Lincoln's outstanding facility is located on a secluded 50-acre site. The original building was built in 1974, and a $1.2 million addition and technology upgrade were completed in 1995. An additional gym and classrooms were added in 2001 through a partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Larimer County.

Learning culture
We have created a middle school environment by dividing the building into three smaller grade level “pods.” Each pod or wing consists of its own grade level that houses students, lockers, classrooms and teachers. Shared space includes visual and performing arts classrooms, computer labs, and a technology/robotics classroom. All students have access to common space such as the cafeteria, gymnasium, and auditorium. Lincoln’s grade level teacher teams collaborate to create an advisory structure to support every student in the school.

Academic environment
Lincoln teaches the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. We develop and celebrate inquiring, knowledgeable, actively involved learners who are accountable for creating a responsible and respectful community. We question, learn, think, care, and act.

Our block schedule allows students the opportunity to attend language arts and math every day. We also offer an enrichment/support period.

Instructional & enrichment programs
Students are involved in a variety of school activities such as athletics, Talent Search, student council, National Junior Honor Society, and service learning.

Lincoln provides students accelerated learning opportunities in math, science, and language arts. In addition, we offer special education programs for special needs students.

Lincoln has outstanding instrumental and vocal music programs, and students in the visual arts consistently win state and national honors.

Opportunities for parents
Lincoln parents become involved through monthly Lincoln Leadership Committee meetings, PTO meetings, and as school volunteers.
