Like many BISD schools, Lincoln Park School opened with a different name. In this case, Lincoln Park went through two names before becoming the school it is today. Originally known as the Brownsville Gateway School, then the Brownsville Opportunity School, the campus began by serving special needs students. At one time, Ron Schraer performed double duty as the school’s principal and the director of BISD Special Services. The school’s focus on students with special needs diminished in the late ‘80’s as students were mainstreamed to other schools within the district.
