About Us » Our School

Our School

Lincoln Elementary School is nestled in the beautiful city of Tulare, California. Located in the Central San Joaquin Valley, Tulare is an agricultural community with a rich history. Lincoln School is privileged to serve students in preschool through sixth grade within the Tulare City School District, where our shared mission is to place the educational, emotional, and safety needs of our students above all else.

Our Vision

The Lincoln School staff, family, and community will form a partnership to provide a safe, caring, and secure environment where children are given meaningful learning opportunities to develop to their fullest potentials academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. 

Our school is unified in working toward this vision. We are committed to ensuring that all students will have equal access to the core curriculum. Our instructional program is based on the State Frameworks of Study and the State Standards and is implemented to students with a developmentally appropriate, integrated, child-centered, meaningful, hands-on teaching style.

Our Goals

The faculty and administration at Lincoln Elementary School work together to meet the following educational goals:

  • Students will develop content knowledge/understanding and skills in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social science, visual and performing arts, and health. Instructors will teach these subjects through an integrated curriculum.
  • Students will become proficient in critical thinking and problem solving. 
  • Students will develop positive self-awareness/esteem and respect for the dignity of others as classrooms will take on a community/family atmosphere. Along with the Character Counts program, we implement a cooperative learning style throughout the school.
