Lexington County School District No. 2 Reviews

I went to Brookland Cayce Senior High School. The atmosphere created by teachers and students was great! However, I found that many academic departments were extremely underfunded and even some parts of the school desperately needed to be renovated. It was unfortunate that the athletics at the school-- primarily football-- were over funded, meaning that team members were given new uniforms, cleats, helmets and practice equipment, while students in theater, the arts, and music classes were left to fundraiser to get functioning equipment and support from the student body. Brookland Cayce has some amazing teachers, however, their priorities are obvious and it's discouraging to many.

Throughout all my years growing up and learning in Lexington County School District 2, it has been a good experience. From the very beginning, I always had good teachers that cared about me and wanted for me to succeed. Just about all my teachers pushed me to where I am today, and without them I would be where I am today. It is a very good feeling to say that your district puts in a lot of hard work to see the children of the future have a brighter day tomorrow. I know for a fact when I graduate, I can say that I have been prepared for a future that will bring me huge success.
They constantly bring in the best faculty and staff to help improve the school environment to provide the best learning experience possible. I attended the following schools within the district: Herbert A. Wood Elementary, Pine Ridge Middle, and Airport High School. All of these schools have imparted in my life showing me that I can achieve anything by setting a strong foundation for myself. Pine Ridge Middle School started it off with a foundation that is literally G.O.L.D, an acronym standing for: Give your best; Own your learning; Lead by positive example; and Demonstrate excellent manners. With this instilled in me from an early age, I was able to hold myself accountable for any goal I would set. All of which continued to build self value and confidence within myself and the students throughout the community, causing everyone to be on one accord, while conquering all goals we set out for ourselves to become successful human beings.
