Lexington Public Schools are extremely successful at preparing students for college, academically speaking. They provide the needed guidance and resources for students to thrive in the classroom. But, I feel that LPS needs to work on mentally preparing student for the being college students. They need to teach students more real-world lessons and skills so they aren't surprised with life when they leave High school.

I liked that my school is in the process of placing more importance on mental health by adding study periods as well as implementing a new homework policy in which homework cannot be given over many holidays. I like that my school values theater, music, and art almost as much as it values athletics. I have liked most of my teachers. One thing that could be improved is helping students understand how many hard classes is too many for them before they start the classes. Stress is a big problem at school.
I grew up in Lexington. The community is warm and welcoming. I always felt at home in this area. However, sometimes there were moments when I felt like the outcast. I feel as if sometimes situations were overlooked because the fear of other communities looking at Lexington as a bad community. We were seen as lesser than the surrounding communities because of our diversity. I believe that Lexington adults should have stopped the racism and side looks towards our students a long time ago. The adults should have stood up for the students not have the students ignore the slander. The choice to overlook these situations just made them grow over the years. Hopefully Lexington Public Schools will learn to take better care of their students. I only hope one year Lexington Public Schools and their students will finally be on the same page.
