Lexington High School has a reputation for being stressful. Yes, it is academically rigorous. However, the stress is what you make it. I've found that a lot of pressure comes from parents, and the faculty at the high school actually goes out of their way to reduce stress in the classroom provided that you advocate for yourself. The faculty is extremely qualified and we are strong in the arts and sports. The school is diverse and inclusive. LHS does lack school spirit, but in the last couple of years steps have been taken to improve that. It is a work in progress, but LHS is a great school!

Lexington High School is a very competitive school in terms of academics which I believe is makes every Lexington High School student ready for college. However, this very competitiveness can often be too much as I definitely wouldn't recommend this school for kids with mental health issues who wouldn't be able to handle stress and pressure. Furthermore, Lexington High School has top-notch extracurricular activities and clubs, especially in science and technology from its two competitive FTC Robotics Teams, Science Bowl, Math Team and many more as well as there being tons of clubs which have absolutely nothing to do with academics such as over five dance clubs, cultural clubs, language clubs, magic club, etc. I could go on. Lexington is one of the safest towns in Massachusetts so I would say that LHS is definitely a safe high school.
Lexington High school is a great school that has a lot of choices of courses for students to take, diversity in students, and prepares students very well for college. Lexington high has so many clubs to offer from the French club to the Refugee alliance club, it has something everyone can like. The work load given to students is quick overwhelming at times especially at the end of the quarter but it also manageable, this depends on the teacher. The only thing I would say negative on this school is the pressure kids have to go through and the big competition there is to do the best between the students.
