Vincennes Lincoln High School, usually referred to as Lincoln High School within Vincennes, and archaically as Vincennes High School, is a high school located in Vincennes, Indiana. The school's primary colors are green and white with its secondary being orange, and its team name is The Alices (or The Lady Alices).

History[edit]

The original Vincennes High School, built in 1897, was located at Fifth and Buntin Streets, near downtown Vincennes. An addition was built in 1916 on the corner of Sixth and Buntin, with another 20-room addition replacing the 1897 section in 1958. Over the years, the name Lincoln High School became the school's official name.

In the fall of 1988, the high school was relocated to a newly built, more spacious building on Hart Street Road, on the southeast edge of town. With the addition of grade 6, Clark Middle School occupied the old high school building from 1988/89 until 2009/10. At that time, the middle school relocated to a new building adjacent to the high school, leaving the building vacant.

Athletics[edit]

The IHSAA uses the name "Vincennes Lincoln" to distinguish the school from Cambridge City Lincoln High School. The Alices were State Champions in Basketball (1923) & (1981)[2][3] and Baseball (2002).[4] The mascot is called Big A.
