Lincoln High School was a public high school in the Canton City School District from 1926 until 1976.

The Lincoln Lions were members of the Hall of Fame Conference for football.[2]

Due to low enrollment, Lincoln and Lehman High School were closed as traditional high schools at the end of the 1975-76 school year and became junior highs.[3] The Lincoln building would eventually house Heritage Christian School in 1979.[4]
