I have enjoyed the four years I have spent here, all of the teachers I’ve had have been friendly and eager for their students to learn. I recall my freshman honors English teacher and my Math teacher being two of the most influential women as far as my education goes, they helped me excel in these subjects and it has helped me tremendously in college. LHS has excellent honors classes and numerous opportunities for juniors and seniors to take dual credits so that they may get a head start when going to college. The faculty and staff does an exceptional job of keeping everything neat and organized and you can tell most teachers care a great deal about the students. It’s a comfortable environment and I will definitely look back on these times as a high school student.

Lexington High School was the perfect school for me academically. The teachers are very supportive and actually want to see you succeed. The staff is also very nice and kindhearted. LHS also offers many clubs ranging from Future Business Leaders of America to Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I am a part of numerous clubs and sports teams at LHS and I have loved every aspect of them. The coaches are super supportive and really great mentors for teens. I believe that in the future there will be even more diversity than there is. Out of my 4 years of experience, I have learned life skills that will help me with college and my adult life after graduating college.
Lexington High School is an astounding school. I went there all 4 years and have received a great education. I walked in to high school thinking I would go to college to study to become a teacher. Not that there is anything wrong with teaching, I found out that it was not for me. I am going to be studying Social Work when I do reach college.

At first, when I started high school, I was a shy girl that stayed to herself mainly, but now, I have grown to be outgoing. I am not scared to stand in front of people, talk to new faces, and just be silly at times.
