There was no shortage of opportunities in this school district! I was thoroughly helped through every stage of high school from entering in as a freshman, to applying for colleges as a senior. The potential to succeed academically was through the roof, as there were endless resources and achievements to attain. The extra curricular activities including sports, clubs, organizations, programs, and services were more than enough to fill up a resume. From building a resume, to writing recommendation letters, to finding jobs, to pursuing goals, making grades, or winning awards, the leaders and teachers in this district were willing to help, as they constantly aimed to make each and every student's success possible.
Review Lexington County School District No. 1
I moved from a different state to Lexington, and went here for 2 years. It was a drastic change, but it was good! Everyone was so welcoming and helped me whenever I needed it. All of the teachers and faculty were so nice and really showed that they cared. You can tell that they genuinely love their jobs. The only thing that I'd change would be the school building itself. It's getting pretty old now, so I feel like there needs to be some work such as new bathrooms or new carpet. Despite that, all in all I had an amazing experience at Lexington. I couldn't have asked for a better high school experience. All of the opportunities that were given to me were unbelievable, and I am so thankful.
I was a student of Lexington 1 for 12 years, from Pre-K to 11th grade then I graduated a year early. I loved all the teachers, they were very encouraging and supportive, and the administration was always on top of any situation. Parents were always encouraged to be apart of activities and the sports were exceptional! For anyone wondering if they should send their student here, I say yes!
