Welcome to Lincoln Middle School - The Place to Be. Lincoln's facility is located on a secluded 50-acre (200,000 m2) site. The current 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. The original Lincoln was built in 1903 on Meldrum Street where the Lincoln Center is now located. It was called Fort Collins High School until 1925, when the “new” FCHS was built on Remington Street.
The middle school is divided 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. Teachers utilize resources such as smartboards, clickers, and netbooks to teach.
The IB Middle Years Programme
Life in the 21st century places many changing demands on students making the transition through adolescence. They are at a crucial period of personal, social, physical and intellectual development, of uncertainty and of questioning. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme is designed to help them find a sense of belonging in the ever-changing and increasingly interrelated world around them and to foster a positive attitude to learning.
What is the IB Middle Years Programme?
The IB Middle Years Programme, for students aged 11 to 16, provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and become critical and reflective thinkers.
