Lexington-Richland School District 5 is a high rated school district that provides numerous, wonderful opportunities for it's students. It's Center for Advanced Technical Studies is a great way to encourage students to become involved in their own fields of interest. The district provides plentiful resources and technology for students to use as well. Each school provides numerous clubs and activities for students to participate in, including an outstanding FIRST Robotics club. Communication with the district office and schools could use improvement. I would personally like to see more attention and promotion of the FIRST Robotics district team since it brings all of the schools together and is a wonderful opportunity for students interested in STEM related fields of study.
The teachers and staff. You could tell the entire staff really wanted all of us to succeed. We were privileged with the technology we were offered and the opportunities we had. But, although the school had a lot of ways to interact socially, students still seemed to be very separate. One time at a pep rally someone took a picture of the senior section and all of the white children were on one side and the African Americans on another. They should find a way to unify students. Also, they were extremely focused on trying to block out anything they didn't think had to do with school that technology became almost impossible to use. This was a big burden because a lot of teachers try to use websites or apps the school blocks and also it's very hard for cell phones to work. I understand you're not supposed to use your phone during instructional time but it was difficult to reach my parents when I needed to because they had the signal and the wifi blocked.
