I like the way that Lexington High School works. They do the best with what they are given or earned, and help students become functioning young adults who are ready for college or the work force. The sports are very active and thriving, and the arts are well represented with concerts, competitions, and shows. Most of the teachers are very good at teaching and are kind to their students. However, I did have about 4 teachers who constantly expressed their dislike towards their job and did not help us get good grades. Besides that, I really enjoyed attending LHS. The International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programs were amazing, as well as the Job-Shadowing, Nurse Clinical, and Traveling systems. Also, Lexington High School has an adjacent Technology Center where students get hands on experiences in real-world jobs, like Firefighting, Nursing, Culinary Arts, Computer Programming, Mechanical Repair, Graphic Design, and more.

I liked my experience overall at Lexington High School, but there are some areas that need improvement. Information is hard to get at this high school, and communication would take a very low score. To an outsider or first-timer, it can be really hard to adjust with all the disconnections in communication and information in this school. As a transfer, I never knew what I was doing or where I needed to be. Even in my senior year, I never really knew what was going on, and was confused in many areas. Sometimes emails don't arrive for important activities, and other times, information just isn't given to all students. However, the teaching staff I encountered at the honors and dual-enrollment levels were fantastic. It is a very clean and safe school that pushes its students to do their very best, and are extremely willing to help if they aren't. The guidance counselors are great, especially at college and career planning, and the administration is actually involved in the school.
LHS is the BEST! The best principal, teachers, students and staff. Everyone is one large family and supports the effort of ONE! Lexington District ONE that is. No overcrowding. Teachers are truly there for the students and students are thriving across the board. Test scores are awesome, grades are soaring and extra-curricular activities are always achieving top honors!
