Great teachers! Best friends and I miss them all! With Covid, the online studies were ok. I’m looking forward to the kids to start in person learning.

There are many different clubs and after school problems offered at the middle and high schools which is really nice. Kids have the opportunity to join robotics, yearbook and all sorts of both academic and non-academic clubs. Each language class usually does a year end trio or some sort of field trip at the end of the year.

There is a lot I would like to see change in Lexington Public Schools. I feel there is a lot of discrimination and bullying both by students and adults that I would like to see more further dealt with. So many times of incidents of both bullying and harassment have been swept under the rug and made to be no big deal. That is not okay. If you are not white and rich, you can forget about being invited out to parties or feeling like you belong at the school.
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.
