The present Lincoln Elementary School opened in the fall of 1970 and is located on the west side of Wausau near Marathon Park and the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point at Wausau campus. It is an important anchor in the “Werle Park Neighborhood,” which is part of the city of Wausau’s “Neighbor-to-Neighbor” initiative.
Lincoln School serves the needs of approximately 230 students from kindergarten through fifth grade. Our school participates in the Wisconsin AGR Program that supports student-to-teacher ratios of 18:1 or less in Kindergarten through Grade 3. We are also a 21st Century Community Learning Center site, which allows us to offer extended day programs like tutoring, enrichment classes, and intramural-type sports to our students.
Lincoln School staff members pride themselves on providing a high quality academic program that targets the individual needs of each child. The highly professional instructional staff also provides a nurturing learning environment where students are challenged to meet high academic standards and to develop positive social behaviors through direct targeted teaching, modeling, and positive reinforcement of common expectations.
We continue to serve a diverse population with a 58% minority student population and with 80% of our students qualifying for Free/Reduced Lunch. We value and celebrate the cultural, ethnic, and academic assets of our school and strive to educate each and every child with high-quality teachers, instructional programming, and career-readying experiences.
