While attending Lexington City School I have had cherishing experiences from Kindergarten to my Senior year. Throughout these courses I gained plenty of knowledge that has prepared me for college. I liked how diverse Lexington City Schools is. I disliked the meal choices; changing the food menu would make things better. A bigger school would be beneficial to accommodate the growing generations.

I have spend in Lexington City Schools for more than half of my academic life. When I just moved here, I did experience some bad grades. I had bad grades because I just had moved from a state where most of my core classes were taught in Spanish. Then I moved to Lexington where all classes are taught in English. Because of that, I was given extra help through ESL classes. After two years, I was back on track with my grades and went back on being a straight A student. In seventh grade I was put in the AIG program because of my successful grades. If it wasn't for the extra help I received from my teachers the first two years, I would not have been successful in my academics like I am today.
I graduated from west davidson high school in Lexington, NC in 2013. My school was small and i personally enjoyed that because i knew everyone and everyone knew me, and it gave me a sense of small town community. The teachers were wonderful and always accessible.
