Lincoln K-8

District-Wide School


Lincoln K-8 Choice School evolved from a grassroots effort by parents and teachers who wanted an alternative elementary school for their children in Rochester. Since 1975, Lincoln Choice School has provided Rochester students and parents with a choice. In 1994, Lincoln expanded its offerings from a K-6 to a K-8 program. Technology and Science have emerged as focus over the last five years. We have developed a partnership with the Mayo Clinic called InSciEd Out ( to increase student engagement in science using zebrafish.  Lincoln has a strong commitment to  a focus on students developing their own learning goals with guidance from teachers and parents. 


We have four teaching teams meeting the needs of five hundred hundred students. The Primary team is made up of students in grades Kindergarten and one. The Middles team is composed of students in grades two and three. The Intermediate team houses students in grades four and five and the Uppers team is made up of students in grades six, seven and eight.
