Lincoln High

Lincoln High School opened in 1871 and is the oldest public high school in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nearly 30,000 Lincoln High graduates are still carrying on the Links tradition, and former Links now live in all 50 states. Lincoln High still has a reputation for being the most diverse school in Lincoln. Students come from over 50 different birth countries and speak more than 30 languages. Lincoln High also continues to pursue excellence in academics. LHS is one of only three International Baccalaureate World Schools in Nebraska. Students in this program participate in a rigorous course of study with a global focus.

The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools was established in 1989 to support the Lincoln Public Schools. In those 20 years, funds have been raised for programs at Lincoln High that go beyond what tax dollars support, programs that enrich students' learning and enhance the curriculum. Last year, through a Legacy gift to the Foundation, former Link John Stubbs and his wife, Nancy, designated just over $225,000 to Lincoln High. John was a 1935 graduate.

Making a gift is as easy as clicking the DONATE button at the top of this page and noting "Lincoln High Fund for Excellence" in the description box under the amount field.
