Principal's Message


Welcome to Lincoln Elementary!


We are looking forward to another excellent year with the support of our outstanding staff, involved parents and high achieving students! Lincoln Elementary provides an encouraging and exciting atmosphere designed to further student growth academically, emotionally, physically and socially to promote respectful, well-informed citizens. With approximately 1,040 Pre-K through fifth grade students, our scholars are on the track for success being active participants, effective communicators, knowledgeable citizens, compassionate, open-minded, and lifelong learners.

Lincoln Elementary is part of a school district that includes National Blue Ribbon Schools, five California Distinguished Schools, and for the third year in a row, the distinction of having the greatest number of “Improved schools” in Orange County.  We continue to pride ourselves in our Lincoln Lions and will continue to play a role in shaping and preparing our students to become responsible, well-rounded 21stcentury global citizens.


Keep working hard, keep striving for the stars and keep up the great work Lincoln Lions! I look forward to a great year working alongside parents and staff to create a successful 2017-2018 academic school year for our students.

  • DPR MicroVention Project Crew & Playworks Team up

    The construction team at DPR’s MicroVention project site in Aliso Viejo, Calif. partnered with youth in Playworks’ junior leadership program to transform a 12 x 12 foot barren dirt lot on the school grounds into a colorful space for gardening and creativity. Playworks, a nonprofit organization committed to promoting safe, fun and healthy play at schools across the nation, is based in mostly underfunded schools, so the landscape enhancements were needed by both Playworks participants and the community.
