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.

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.
Although at times stressful, Lexington High School has shown to prepare me well academically. The high level courses available allow students to push themselves while also being supported by teachers and counselors. Students are also given many opportunities to pursue other interests with many elective choices which cater to each student.
