Abraham Lincoln High School (ALHS) is a California Distinguished public high school located in the Sunset District of San Francisco, California. In 2017, ALHS was ranked #822 and earned a silver medal by U.S. News & World Report, placing it in the top 3% of public high schools nationally.[1]

ALHS is a comprehensive high school with a long history of excellence. ALHS provides a positive, nurturing school environment that supports high academic performance and student self-image. ALHS offers a rigorous honors and college prep program and students have the opportunity to specialize in one of six academic areas: the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) Pathway, the Biotechnology Pathway, the Business Academy, the Digital Media Design Academy, the Teacher Academy and the Green Academy.

In addition to its academies and pathways, ALHS provides services and special education for severely and non-severely impaired students; a comprehensive English Language Learner (ELL) program; a Mandarin Secondary Dual Language Pathway; 4 years of Spanish, Mandarin, French, and Japanese instruction; a GATE pathway for gifted and talented students; a Wellness Center; Peer Resource Program; AVID; Step-to-College; and a vast array of clubs, athletics, and extracurricular activities.

History[edit]

Abraham Lincoln High School was established on Tuesday, August 27, 1940, accepting approximately 950 students under Lincoln's first principal, Clyde W. White. Its opening and dedication ceremony was held on September 22, 1940.

A 1938 bond issue, approved by San Francisco voters to address the increasing population in the Western San Francisco area, financed the incorporation of Abraham Lincoln High School with a three-story building of 50 classrooms, library, and cafeteria as well as a football field, costing over $750,000 in 1940 (adjusted for 2005 dollars, over $10 million). Additions such as the North and South Gymnasiums, the auditorium, and the bungalow expansion were completed later.

In December 2007, Lincoln began modernization of the existing campus for accessibility and construction of a new building to replace the 23 aged bungalow buildings which covered a large portion of the site. The bungalow replacement resulted in a new 18-classroom CHPS-Designed building. (Collaborative for High Performance Schools). Construction of the new $9.25 million building was completed in 2009 with 22,754 square feet of new classrooms.

The first Star Trek convention was held at Lincoln in 1975.[2]

The building is portrayed as Elmore Junior High School in the British/American cartoon show The Amazing World Of Gumball.

Location[edit]

Abraham Lincoln High School is a "westside" school along with Lowell High School and George Washington High School.

In the center of the Sunset District, Abraham Lincoln High School occupies four city blocks demarcated by the intersections of Quintara Street and Santiago Street and 22nd Avenue and 24th Avenue. The school is located near the Sunset Reservoir, which supplies water for the Sunset district and serves as a rectangular, city-block track for physical education, and directly north of McCoppin Square, the Taraval Police Station and the Parkside branch of the San Francisco Public Library.

Academics and admissions[edit]

Abraham Lincoln High School, unlike alternative schools such as Lowell and SOTA, is a comprehensive school which does not require special applications, testing or auditions for admission. As with all SFUSD schools, Lincoln's admissions are affected by the "diversity index", which considers factors such as socioeconomic status, academic achievement, parents' educational background, and the API score of the sending school.[3]

For the 2017–2018 school year, ALHS was the second most requested high school in the district, after Lowell, 34% (1,548) of all applicants requested Lowell as a 1st choice, and 19% (868) requested Lincoln.[4]

Traditions[edit]

The school colors are red and gold, and the school mascot is the Mustang.

The school hymn was written by a Lincoln graduate, Patricia Cutler Aversano, in 1943 and called "High on a Hilltop". The lyrics to the hymn are:

High on a hilltop, 'mid sand and sea,
Abraham Lincoln, we will honor thee forever.
Thy sons and daughters, however long the trail,
Always will remember thee. Hail! Hail! Hail!

Lincoln and rival Washington High School have a 70-year old football tradition called The Bell Game.[5] The winning school receives the prized bell. Spirit week is an important time at Lincoln High School. It takes place the week of the Bell Game. Spirit Week events include Battle of the Classes, Twin Day, Crazy Hair Day, Nerd Day, Polo/Hat/Tie Day, and Duct Tape/Tinfoil Day.

The annual Brotherhood Sisterhood Assembly ("BSA") is one of the most popular events at ALHS. Various clubs perform to celebrate the school's diversity. BSA began as an opportunity to understand other cultures after a near fatal school-related shooting, which resulted in a paralyzed teenager over ten years ago. The BSA is a two-hour assembly presented by a wide array of extracurricular clubs that promote tolerance and awareness (Polynesian Dance Club, Middle-Eastern Club, Munocka Performing Arts, Koinonia Club, Japanese Culture Club, Korean Club, Vietnamese Club, and Fellowship Club), diversity (Gay-Straight Alliance, Peer Resources, Black Student Union), and student interests (Hip Hop Club, Break-Dancing Club, Drama Club, Varsity Gold Show Choir and Cheerleading Team).

Lincoln hosts two seasonal festivals each year: Fall Fest and Spring Fest. Accompanied by popular music, a majority of clubs hold fundraising activities in the open courtyard, from JROTC's traditional barbecues to Chinese food, other cultural dishes, smoothies and mixed drinks.

The Turkey Day game is the city championship football game held annually on Thanksgiving.

Extracurricular and community work[edit]

ALHS has over 30 clubs [6]and student organizations including Amnesty International, Red Cross Club, Lincs Service Society, Environmental Club, Gay-Straight Alliance, Youth for Chinatown Elderly, JROTC (Color Guard, Drum Corps, Exhibition and Flag Drill Team), Black Student Union, the Varsity Gold Show Choir, and Drama, to name a few.

The student body at ALHS prides itself on making generous charitable contributions and running charitable campaigns, with annual drives for organizations such as the San Francisco Food Bank and Salvation Army as well as fundraising for current disasters and other events needing charitable contributions. In 2004 the San Francisco Food Bank recognized ALHS for collecting the most food out of all San Francisco schools. That year students raised $10,000 in the wake of the 2004 Asian tsunami.

School Athletics[edit]

ALHS fields varsity teams in baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, fencing, football, golf, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. ALHS also offers track and field, badminton, softball, weightlifting and girls' flag football. In addition, ALHS has a number of athletic and sports clubs including archery, cycling and dragon boat.

Dragon boating at ALHS: Established in 1996, the ALHS dragon boat team is one of the largest in the Bay Area,. The dragon boat team is co-ed and has won numerous championships in the past and currently holds the championship title in the 2016 Northern California International Dragon Boat Festival high school division. The dragon boat team travels nationally and internationally.
