Yankee Hill Education Center
Amanda Shonka, Principal

Welcome to Yankee Hill Education Center! It is my privilege to serve as principal for a school community consisting of resilient learners and deeply dedicated staff. Our school mission is to provide a safe, supportive, educational learning environment that encourages students to achieve their best, engage in learning, graduate and become productive citizens. We strive to achieve our mission through the implementation of innovative and trauma informed practices to support our students in taking ownership of their learning, self-management and coping strategies.

Through the use of Lincoln Public Schools Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, our staff provides students with the resources necessary to achieve academically while ensuring a safe, predictable and highly structured learning environment. Consistent expectations and teaching prosocial skills are at the foundation of our daily work.

At Yankee Hill, we believe in the potential of each student. We also believe in the importance of collaboration with families and students’ home schools in order to meet the potential found within each of our students. Your support and collaboration with the staff at Yankee Hill is encouraged and welcomed. I look forward to partnering with you to meet our students’ individual goals!
