Lincoln Elementary School is one of the largest elementary school in the Mt. Vernon City School District, servicing students from Kindergarten through 8th grade. We are located at 170 E Lincoln Avenue, a main fairway through the heart of Mt. Vernon in the southernmost end of the Fleetwood neighborhood. There are on average of three classrooms per grade level in grades K-8. We are a diverse and inclusive campus serving 650 students depending on enrollment. Most families reside in the surrounding neighborhood and walk to school. Others in our school community are bused from areas throughout Mt. Vernon. A talented staff and an active PTA support our students in achieving our mission of engaging, educating and empowering our children.

With family members, supporters and city and school district leaders, the motorcade included members of the entourage in classic cars – a blue Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible, a red Chevrolet Bel Air, a pale yellow Thunderbird among them.
