In "Building Expectations: A Portrait Of Lincoln High," Envision San Diego explores whether a new, expensive school can affect the academic outcomes of students.

Lincoln High School is one of the most expensive campuses in the San Diego Unified School District, surrounded by the some of the poorest neighborhoods in southeast San Diego.
