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.

Lexington County School District No. 2 is a good school district for education. It is small enough that students develop a personal connection with teachers and their local communities. There are school events that help strengthen student and teacher and staff relationships. While also giving students a break in the day to day school activities.
My only negative experience's were based on race and sexuality from fellow students . As an African American student I've seen and heard about very racist students bringing others down with disrespectful and out of date ideology. There are also students who dislike the LGBTQ+ community and make it hard for them to feel comfortable and accepted at school.
Due to recent events I hope others will be more educated on these topics and want to be the change much needed in todays world. I know change will not happen overnight but any progress is better than none at all.
Sincerely,

Arianna Pee
This school district is average all around. There is all of nepotism and favoritism. What enhanced this school district was adding the innovation center, and that is why I give it 4 stars, but if it didn't I would give the school district 3 stars. This school district could be better if they didn't allow things to be swept under the rug and if things brought to principals by parents were taken seriously.
