Welcome to the new Lincoln High School Alumni Association web site.                                                                   Be sure to go to who we are for information about our organization.


The Big Party is going to be a one off. A huge tailgate party at PSU's Viking Pavilion to celebrate Lincoln's 150th.  It will be the biggest gathering of Lincoln supporters EVER.  Alumni or future Cards; current families or community friends; boosters who have sat in the freezing bleachers rooting for the Cards, or theatergoers who have filled the auditorium for drama or musical performances.

  • Dig out your vintage Lincoln gear; a letter jacket, running shorts or if really daring, a Lincoln ski suit.  
  • Gather your friends and book your tickets.

The Big Party is a very casual evening.  Reconnect with old friends, catch up with teachers - yes, Mr Bailey will be there - and enjoy entertainment from past and current students.  It is rumored that a few well known Alumni will be there - but don't tell Homer!

Food stations and bars will be throughout the Viking Pavilion. Your ticket includes dinner and a drink. There will be seating everywhere.  Areas will be dedicated to decades so you can easily find your old Classmates. 


If you cannot come, please consider buying a ticket for a teacher.  Thank you!



Throughout the years, Lincoln has been known for providing excellent educational opportunities to Portland students. It is an example for the nation of a downtown urban school which produces high achieving graduates in the face of continuing budget cuts. The Alumni Association is dedicated to doing what it can to continue this proud tradition.




In celebration of Lincoln's Sesquicentennial we are working on a legacy book filled with photos from 1869 to the present and essays from alums! The book will be for sale by the end of March 2019. Cost is $75 ($70 for members).

You can pre-order here.


The predecessor of Lincoln High School, called Portland High School, was founded in 1869. It was one of the first public high schools west of the Rockies. After sharing facilities with several elementary schools on the west side of Portland, the first separate Portland High School building was completed in 1885. It was located on S.W.14th and Morrison. In 1908 the name was changed to Lincoln High School, and in 1912 the school moved to a new building on Broadway between Market and Mill. This building is now part of Portland State University. In September, 1952 school began in the present building on SW 16th and Salmon St. 

The new vision for Lincoln High School calls for a seven-story tower of academic classrooms and teaching space. A center courtyard will separate the tower from a three-story theater and a gym above an adequately sized cafeteria. The school is scheduled break ground on its new building in 2020, to open for the 2022-23 academic year.
