The design of our school reflects our core values of openness and collaboration.

Message from the Principal of the Lincoln Hancock:

As the principal of the Lincoln-Hancock School, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to our community of learners.

The staff at Lincoln-Hancock is proud to be working with the children of West Quincy. We strive to not only meet the academic needs of our students but to also prepare the next generation of citizens. Respect of self, others, and property, compassion, community service, and problem solving skills are all traits reinforced through daily interactions with our staff. We provide opportunities for growth in both the academic realm and the personal. Therefore our mission in working with children from a diverse community is to help our students recognize and exercise their individual talents, explore opportunities to discover new talents, live up to the fundamental tenets of a democratic society, and to give each child the tools necessary for success both now and in the future. The staff and children consider ourselves the PRIDE of Lincoln Hancock, a team who help one another out. Each letter in the word PRIDE stands for a characteristic: P for perseverance, R for respect, I for integrity, D for dependable and finally, E for effort. The children strive to live up to the tenet of PRIDE and are recognized on a daily basis for positive behavior and actions. Lincoln Hancock is a wonderful place to learn and grow and I invite you to join our students, staff, parents, and community partners in our endeavor.
