Lexington Public Schools does it's best--though it comes up short in some areas. On the positive side, Lexington Public Schools is very diversive, as most of the town's population is. However, it'd be nice to see an equally diverse faculty. Furthermore, AP or IB courses are not offered, because it is generally thought that our student body couldn't "handle it."In turn, most students struggle in college. I wish the overall attitude reflected a more positive outlook. The student body needs to be encouraged to believe they can achieve more. I will say our counselors do a good job of walking students through the process of applying to a handful of colleges. Some students need more support, and they do their best to cater to these students. Lexington Public Schools is also improving in the area of activities as sports and fine art activities are qualifying for more awards.

Lexington High School is a very average school with 1,000 students, the students that I have talked to don't like to be here because some of the teachers can be very rude to other students. The administration here is decent but they don't let us students do anything and during lunch they lock the bathroom doors so we can't use them. When one thing goes bad during sporting events our Athletic Director babysits us while we are trying to cheer on our sports teams.
My experience at this school is that we have it easy when teachers and outside sources want you to succeed in multiple things. Such as academics, sports, the arts, and other activities that makes this school special. I wouldn't say our school is diverse, but it is completely different to the schools around us who are mostly Caucasian, and ours is more Hispanic. We have certain things that make us different for being in central Nebraska, and I am happy that I get to be apart of it.
