About Abraham Lincoln High School
Lincoln High School, which opened its doors in 1960, is located within an urban working-class neighborhood in southwest Denver, six miles from downtown. Many of our students’ parents were born in other countries and many students will be the first in their families to graduate high school. Lincoln serves a primarily Hispanic student body, as well as students from Sudan, Somalia, and Southeast Asia, to name a few. As Lincoln Lancer educators, we take pride in challenging the stereotype by empowering our newcomer and first-generation students to achieve success. We take great pride in providing a high level of service to our students, families, and community.
