Alumni Success Stories

"I can't think of a better way to start an education than at Lincoln-Erdman. Throughout my early years of school, I had the best teachers. They gave me the guidance and encouragement to find myself and grow into the person I am today. My fifth grade teacher developed a unit on Australia after she had traveled there. She inspired me so much that now I am traveling to not only Australia but New Zealand with a study abroad group. The teachers at Lincoln-Erdman truly care about the children they teach."

"I can't think of a better place to begin an education than at Lincoln-Erdman Elementary School. Their encouraging staff and extra educational opportunities boosted my leadership skills and made me the person I am today. It is because of Lincoln-Erdman that I have a strong work ethic, good people skills, and great leadership abilities. I used those abilities in high school to achieve High Honor Roll every semester, make First-Team All-State for tennis and basketball, win the 2007 WIAA Scholar-Athlete award, and earn a Division 1 basketball scholarship. The staff has changed since I attended school there, but I'm positive the system remains top-notch."

“Lincoln-Erdman is a great school! I liked Lincoln-Erdman because of the caring teachers and staff. At Lincoln-Erdman, there are awesome music programs where you are individually challenged as well as fun after school activities such as L.U.C.K. and Student Council where you could make a difference in the community. I felt academically prepared for middle school this year. Sometimes the teachers would group students together so you could be challenged at the right level. Those are some of the reasons why Lincoln-Erdman is great school.”
