Lexington Public Schools Reviews

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.
Lexington High has super resources, outstanding teachers and most importantly, a fantastic bunch of students that keep you pushing harder. I adored the competition+collaboration we had in our class that resulted in a bunch of us that grouped together for test prep ending up at top 20 colleges.

The pressure is a little too high at times but now that I'm looking at it outside in, I realize that the pressure was a critical element to my development and readiness for college.

If you don't want your family to spend a fortune on private schools, Lexington High is the next best thing.
