Lincoln Public Schools is the second largest public school district in Nebraska, located in the heart of the plains, renowned for its long-standing legacy of educational excellence and tradition of rigorous academic achievement. The school district is growing and thriving, serving over 40,000 students in more than 60 schools and programs. Because of the recent expansion of Lincoln's city limits, Lincoln will be opening 2 high schools, 4 middle schools, and 5 elementary schools from 2019 to 2029. [1]

The current superintendent is Dr. Steve Joel, who was hired in 2010. Previously, he served for ten years as superintendent in Grand Island, Nebraska, and eight years in Beatrice, Nebraska. A native of Long Island, New York, he has degrees from Doane College, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Kansas State University.[2]

As of 2010, students of Lincoln Public Schools speak 52 languages. This is due to Lincoln being a destination of many refugees, who have settled there since the U.S. Government declared Lincoln a refugee-friendly city in the 1970s.[3]
