News From Our Principal
Greetings Greyhound Nation,
I hope everyone had a safe, fun-filled July 4th celebration and you are continuing to enjoy the beautiful summer weather, along with getting some much needed, well-deserved rest in preparation for the coming school year.
I wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on our Florida Standards Assessments and End-of-Course exam results. We have received individual scores and achievement levels for all areas assessed, which will assist us with student placement and scheduling for the upcoming school year.
Below is an overview of our school’s proficiency rates in each of the areas tested:

The individual student score reports have not arrived yet. Once we receive them, we will be sure to inform parents as to when your child’s report can be picked up. Report cards have been mailed home. If you have not received your child’s report card, please contact the school at 468-5474.
I would also like to share some great news! The Florida Department of Education recently released school grades for the 2016-2017 school year, and I am proud to report Lincoln Park Academy has maintained an “A” for another consecutive year!
Congratulations Greyhounds!!! Lincoln Park Academy could not have achieved its 16th “A” in a row, had it not been for the hard work, dedication and the collective efforts of the entire “Staffulty” and all of our students.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer break! We look forward to seeing everyone at the start of the new school year.
