Lincoln School offers transportation services to students residing in different parts of Kathmandu and Lalitpur, utilizing its fleet of air-conditioned buses and vans. Nearly 85% of the student population avails this service, and the duration of their bus rides varies between 10 and 50 minutes depending on their place of residence. The school ensures the safety and security of its students during the commute by maintaining constant communication with the drivers through two-way radios and GPS trackers. Additionally, bus monitors are present on board to address any concerns or requirements that the students may have.

Health Services

The Health Office at Lincoln School is staffed by two professionals - the school nurse and the health office administrative assistant. The school nurse is available on all school days and offers expert nursing services to students. Their primary role is to safeguard and enhance the health, safety, and academic achievements of students by delivering evidence-based healthcare, including emergency care and first aid; keeping health records to ensure personalized healthcare and health advancement; preventing and controlling the spread of communicable diseases; supervising and administering medication to students; assisting in the management of health conditions such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, and seizures; providing health education to students, staff, and parents; sharing information regarding local healthcare providers and services with parents and staff; supporting the maintenance of a secure school environment; and promoting and assisting with emergency preparedness at school and in the community.

Air Quality

Lincoln School acknowledges the significance of air quality and has implemented various initiatives to provide a clean and healthy environment for our students to thrive in. In response to the recorded air quality levels in Kathmandu, they have established procedures to gather AQI data from different areas and at various times on our campus. The Staff and Faculty Air Quality Committee has worked diligently to ensure that the processes are in line with the best practices adopted by educational institutions in the region. Drawing from this research, Lincoln School has developed several measures to minimize students' exposure to unhealthy air.

Child Protection

Lincoln School holds a strong commitment to upholding the safety and rights of children in accordance with their fundamental principles. They endorse the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was ratified by Nepal, our host country, in 1990 and incorporated into Nepal's Children's Act in 1992. Guided by the Convention's spirit, Lincoln School endeavors to create a safe and secure environment for all our students, recognizing that all children have the right to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.

Safety and Security

At Lincoln School, the safety and security of the community is of utmost importance, and they have taken significant measures to ensure preparedness for a range of circumstances. To guide their ability to prepare for and respond to potential crises, they have developed an extensive crisis response manual. The staff members have received comprehensive training in crisis response, and they conduct regular drills on fire, earthquake, stand fast, and emergency dismissal procedures. In addition, they have a lightning detection system that enables them to make informed decisions regarding outdoor activities and pool use. The efforts in this domain are further bolstered by the support of the US Embassy and the Regional Security Office.

Lincoln School, founded in 1954 is celebrating 67 years, and as you learn about our school you will begin to develop an understanding of what makes us unique. Lincoln is an independent, not-for-profit U.S. curriculum, Preschool-Grade 12 international school. As a school, we have a long-established tradition of student-centered education founded on best practices, offering individualized attention through small class sizes and outstanding international faculty and support staff.

We opened our learning commons and classroom building five years ago, and although the facilities are outstanding and represent the best in Nepal and top in the region, it is our commitment to the mission and core values – Collaboration, Compassion, Learning, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility – that serves as a foundation for the learning experiences and our commitment to meet the individual needs of each student. Our student experience offers a community-oriented learning environment that fosters the well-being of the whole student.

Lincoln enjoys a strong community-centered reputation and is more than simply an academic institution. We care deeply about the social, emotional, and physical development of each of our students, as well as the success of our alumni. We also value an open and honest relationship with our parents, where they are active partners in the growth of their children.

On behalf of the entire Lincoln community, I look forward to assisting you in your interest in the school, and in your transition to our community.
