Lincoln Elementary School, a TK-5 public elementary school of over 700 students is located in Oakland Chinatown. The school receives Title I funding. A large percentage of the student population comes from homes where a language other than English is spoken.


Our mission is to inspire and challenge students to excel academically, socially, and emotionally through our guidance and positive modeling. We will continue to provide a rigorous academic program within a nurturing environment,  with access to the home language and respect for the home culture.
