Applications are being accepted through Wednesday, April 3.

Dear Experienced Administrators,

We are in need of an excellent administrator, but before your read the OFFICIAL information regarding the application, please check out these student testimonials about how much they love their school.  They care as much about who comes next as parents and staff members do:

Jillian wrote, “So here are several reasons to move to Lincoln and to become my next principal. We have a really cute little school, and since we don’t have a lot of students, you can get to know everybody really well. The kids will get to know you really well too. Lin-Wood is the kind of school where kids smile and make eye contact when they say good morning; where teachers will support kids inside of school and out for reasons academic or not; where we have a strong community that gives their money and time over and over again to help anything to do with the school. Please applicants, come join this wonderful Lin-Wood family and become our next principal! I can’t wait to meet you!”

Andrew wrote, “The Lincoln Woodstock community is very close knit. You know just about everything there is to know about everyone at Lin-Wood. We are a community- if someone is having a rough day, we work to make them feel better. Lin-Wood is also able to provide diverse opportunities to the students, thanks to our budget that is fueled local families as well as second home owners. If you are caring and like students, you will be a good new principal.”

Mihalis S. wrote, “I know there are many many other schools  you could choose to apply to. But, here are a couple reason why you should come to Lin-Wood. Our school is a safe environment where our students are not afraid of anything. Another reason you should be our principal is because we have a very kind community with caring teachers, parents, and staff members. And finally the last reason you should come to this school is because we really need a great principal.”
