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 am Aquariah Mcintosh a rising sophomore and I go to Lexington Senior High School. It is a great academic and sports school . There is a lot of diversity there and the staff is loving and helpful at any point. Our school is about trying to get our kids ready for college or whatever they have planned for the future and too always have a plan B or C .
