Hello! I have had an overall excellent experience with Lexington One. I am thankful that they have multiple free clubs available in all schools to be apart of. I think each school is very safe or at least I feel as if my school is safe. The resource officer at my school is always on guard yet jokes around and has fun with the kids putting everyone at ease. The lunch ladies put such hard work into preparing foods they feel we may like. I can always go ask my teachers for help and clarification and they are always open to help me as well as other students. Overall, Lexington School District One is an amazing district with multiple opportunities to learn in a safe, caring, advanced environment. Thanks!

Lexington County School District 1 has provided the safest environment for me to learn. Not only that, but the teachers in this district are exceptional. They take the time to work with you until you grasp the concept. These teachers have been taught that the students’ understanding is the highest priority and it shows. The individual attention I receive is incredible!
This is hands down the best school district in South Carolina. This district has very good facilities and an excellent quality of education. The staff at the schools are excellent, and the student bodies are great, too! There is plenty of staff available to help the students with whatever they need.
