Lincoln Southeast

Lincoln Southeast Alumni

The culture of Lincoln Southeast High School is created by the staff's commitment to academic success for all students. The administration and faculty recognize the value and importance of creating a community of learners who will assume leadership roles now and in the future. They are committed to high achievement, emphasizing the importance of parental support.

Lincoln Southeast High School was built in 1955 when only 1,200 students were enrolled in this “neighborhood" school. As communities change, Southeast mirrors those emerging issues facing our city, state, and country. Larger enrollment and changing demographics continue to be reflected in their student population. They continue their tradition of excellence in academic and extracurricular activities. They are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to future endeavors.

The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools has helped raise money for programs at Southeast that go beyond what tax dollars support, programs that enrich students' learning and enhance the curriculum. In 2009, the Southeast Auditorium was renovated and renamed the Jennifer L. Dorsey-Howley Performing Arts Center. The renovation was funded by the 2006 LPS bond and donations through the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools.
