  • Lincoln Heights Elementary to get new environmental connections magnet theme

    Lincoln Heights Elementary in Fuquay-Varina is getting a new environmental connections magnet school theme and a soon-to-be renovated campus to try to help educate its 500 students. Seven out of 10 of Lincoln Heights’ students receive federally subsidized lunches and 37 percent of the students are proficient on state reading exams. Reading scores are significantly higher at other schools around Fuquay-Varina where the populations also have far fewer low-income students.
