A number of students outside Lincoln’s boundaries opt to come into our school through the School of Choice program. We welcome school of choice candidates from any elementary school.
In Poudre School District we believe students who are happy in their school environment are more likely to achieve. Whether attending their neighborhood school or taking advantage of the school of choice option, students can find the best learning environment to meet their needs. The large majority of Lincoln students are neighborhood kids!
School of Choice means students may attend any school in PSD on a space available, first-come, first-served basis. Transportation for students granted permission to attend a school outside their attendance area is the responsibility of the parents. (We could help you talk with other parents that are interested in car-pooling to Lincoln).
School of Choice Application Information
Parents must complete and submit a separate application form for each child. As part of the online process, the date and time of the application will be displayed along with a School Choice Application Confirmation Number. Parents are strongly encouraged to print and retain a copy of the confirmation.
Students who are currently attending Lincoln by School of Choice are accepted for the duration of their middle school education. They do NOT need to re-apply each year. A student who wishes to return to his/her neighborhood school MUST submit a School of Choice Application.
Principal Stires would be happy to meet with you and discuss how Lincoln can best meet the needs of your child.
