Lincoln High School Dragon Boat Team Wins

World Championships

Team takes home gold medals in four competitions in Szeged, Hungary


San Francisco (August 1, 2018) - The Abraham Lincoln High School Dragon Boat team took home the gold in four competitions at the 11th International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF) Club Crew World Championship Races in Szeged, Hungary in July. Led by coaches Fanny Chen, Wesley Chen, Matt Chen, and team manager Brian Yee, the team of 37 student athletes competed in six division category races, winning gold in four and silver in two during the six-day festival.


Lincoln won gold medals in the Junior A 200-meter and 500-meter categories, both for the mixed (gender) and women (all-girls) divisions. The team also placed silver for two categories: the open (boys) division 200-meter and 500-meter races.


“We are incredibly proud of what the Dragon Boat team accomplished in Hungary,” Lincoln High School Principal Shari Balisi said. “Not only did the team do a wonderful job of representing Lincoln High, but they also did an outstanding job representing San Francisco and the United States in a prominent international setting. Go Mustangs!”


With more than 6,000 participants from 150 teams representing 30 countries competing, this event is considered to be one of the largest international dragon boat events. As the highest level of competition for the sport, it features some of the fastest teams from around the world. Lincoln Dragon Boat achieved the fastest final and average times in the mixed division 500-meter category out of the 20 teams, including adults and seniors, representing the United States.  



Established in 1996, Lincoln High School Dragon Boat Team is the school’s largest independent student organization and one of the largest dragon boat teams in California. As a club sport run by volunteer coaches, the team’s purpose goes beyond paddling to develop students into responsible young adults fostering discipline, respect, strong work ethics, and positive sportsmanship. The team holds championship titles from the 2016 and 2017 Northern California International Dragon Boat races, has the highest win count within the California Dragon Boat Association (CDBA), and is the only team to sweep all top CDBA high school divisions three times in a row.


Dragon Boat, a human-powered watercraft sport that originated in Southern China, has been celebrated for over 2,000 years and is today’s fastest growing international watercraft sport. Race festivals are held in locations throughout the world every year. As well as in the U.S., the Lincoln Dragon Boat Team has competed in Asia, Europe, Australia and Canada. Participation in international dragon boat events provides tremendous opportunities for our students to learn about different cultures and to represent our community through paddling.

Biotech Week 2018 was a Success!

We engaged with almost 1000 high school students in San Francisco to help create the next generation of scientists.

Five high schools across the city hosted Biotech Weeks in their biology classes in April and early May -- Leadership High School in the Outer Mission, Burton High School in the Portola District, Galileo High School in Russian Hill, Wallenberg High School in the Western Addition and Lincoln High School in the Parkside/Sunset District.

Biotech Week engaged almost 1000 students and 11 biology teachers with real-world applications in biotechnology.  Twenty researchers and leaders from the science industry along with City College biotech faculty members also visited the classrooms as part of the session. 

Student participation reflected the diverse population of SFUSD:  49% female, 51% male, 45% East Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Cambodian, Vietnamese), 22% Hispanic, 6% Filipino, 6% African American and 5% Caucasian.

Lunch Time Policies

Lunch TIme Special.jpg

Due to our wonderful student population, Lincoln is one of a few public high schools where students enjoy an Open Campus lunch.  However please keep in mind the following Lunch Time Policies:

  • Lincoln has a closed campus at all other times of the school day.  No student is permitted to leave campus during class or passing periods without a SFUSD "Permit to Leave."  Students may not access cars during class or passing periods.
  • Lunch is 45 minutes long.  Students are expected to be in class exactly at the start of the period after lunch. 
  • Students are not to loiter during lunch on Taravel or Noriega; they may purchase food, then return to campus.
  • Students are to practice respectful behavior in the community during lunch; no profanity, horseplay or littering are permitted.
  • Students may denied off campus lunch for violation of any of these policies.

Open Campus Lunch is a privilege, not a right.  Please contact Ms. Balisi, Principal, with any questions, (415) 759-2714.  Thank you. 

Attention Parents/Guardians! SFUSD Has a School Lunch Pre-Payment Program Available

MealPayPLus with Border.jpg
Our school cafeteria has a prepayment program called MealpayPlus that will increase convenience for families and speed up lunch lines. Student Nutrition Services is encouraging families to prepay for students’ school meals by the month, by the week or on their own schedule.  

MealpayPlus allows families to register at and prepay by credit card, debit card or electronic check online or by phone. Families may also pay by check or cash at school, or may choose to send checks by mail.  MealpayPlus will also allow families, including those who qualify for National School Lunch Program free or reduced-price meals, to view their students’ history of purchases in the cafeterias, so parents can see what their child is eating.   

Other benefits of MealpayPlus include eliminating the need for children to carry cash to school, reducing cash losses, and helping the district meet all requirements set by the National School Lunch Program. If paying online, there is a 4.75% transaction fee. However, SFUSD offers a Bonus payment to your account which is equal to the fee.
