Lexington High School Reviews
This school has been my school since 2016, and I have very mixed reviews about everything from the atmosphere, academics, and everything else in between. There is a high competitive atmosphere among both students and athletes, with many from both groups always pushing to be better than everyone else. The academics is what you’d expect from a typical high school, with assignments, homework in projects ranging from extremely easy to very stressful and difficult. There is so much more I could say, but overall this school is okay.
Personally, I enjoy Lexington High School because it is a larger school with plenty of chances to meet new people every single day. I think we are well prepared for college life, as the academic system is very rigorous and based on the idea that we will all for the most part be attending college after high school. However, I feel it is limited when it comes to discussion/promotion of other paths there are out of high school, and at times I have felt unsafe as a result of limit action against unwanted and inappropriate behavior/comments from students. I feel as though academics comes before all else, which is potentially harmful to the mental health and overall success of students.
Lexington High is a very competitive environment but you really can get an incredible education there if you are driven. It, however, does not do well for unmotivated or depressive students as the school environment is too overwhelming and competitive to make you feel like you can succeed if you start out lower than everyone else. The administration tries to implement systems to help struggling students but a lot of the issues are with the culture and the pressure from parents of students.
