Inner Southwest Portland’s Lincoln High is densely packed with 1,700 largely high-achieving students. Complaints of the small, inadequate cafeteria have been a frequent rallying cry for the Cardinals community.
The inner city school is scheduled break ground on its new building in 2020, to open for the 2022-23 academic year. The building is still envisioned as a 289,000-square-foot plan with 206,000 square feet as instructional space.
The Plan for Lincoln:
- First floor: Cafeteria, lockers, administration, theater, performing arts studio, food pantry and teen parent resource center.
- Second floor: Special education classrooms, counseling, gym and other classrooms.
- Third floor: Classrooms, library and more athletics rooms.
- Fourth through seventh floors: Classrooms and flex spaces. The top floor will likely house the art and science classrooms for maximum ventilation.
