Lexington High School has been my second home for the past four years. I moved to Lexington from Greenville the summer before my freshman year. I hated Lexington just because I didn't want to move, but one of the major reasons why I love Lexington now is because of the school that I go to. If I were to have went to any other school, then I would probably still hate it here. The whole student body, faculty, and staff are just like one big family at Lexington. I could go up to any teacher, student, coach, counselor, etc. and ask for advice or just have a normal conversation with them about anything. That is how I made all of my friends. Everyone is very kind and welcoming. I couldn't have asked for a better high school to go to, and I wouldn't change anything about it. Go Wildcats!
Review Lexington High School
Since freshman year, all of my teachers have shown me that exuding motivation and excitement for what one may want life will always take you very far in life. Without the teachers and staff at Lexington High School, my passion for learning would be nonexistent. Lexington High School leaves me in awe of the growth of students and even the staff. My opinion is bias, but it is one of the best learning environments in South Carolina!
Overall Lexington High is a good school with lots of great people, but I will say we need a more diverse range of students. There's lots of clubs and sports you can participate in after school and the teachers are great!
