Our LCS community

At Lincoln Community School, "community" is more than just a word in our name.  Ask anyone connected to the school what makes LCS an exceptional place to learn, and they'll probably talk about the feeling of family they get from being a Lincoln citizen.

Our life together starts from our learning together.  Teachers participate with students as they teach, keeping classrooms interactive.  Students help each other find answers to shared questions.  Parents reinforce lessons learned at school.

Outside of school, families help each other adjust to life in Accra.  Students bond on service trips, during basketball practices, or at the local mall.  Parents work with the PTO to organize bazaars.  Learning and living together, we find unity.

From teachers and administrative staff to members of the Board of Trustees, from elementary school students to alumni who are now LCS parents, here are some of the people who make our community special.
