I love going to Lexington school. The students are generally friendly to one another and the teachers are excellent. They make sure what is being taught is understood. I really loved the atmosphere of the school and while there are things they could improve on, (more music and art involvement) this school is a wonderful place!

I am now a student at one of the top ranking universities in the southeast. The culture and community of Lexington have shaped the school over the years. I was enrolled K-12 at this school and wouldn't have gone anywhere else, if given the option. You may notice that I gave my Alma Mater 1 star on diversity. This reflects on Lexington's ethnic diversity, not the diversity of the people. With small class sizes, the students are allowed to interact with the teachers directly and get help easily when needed. All departments are adequate, or more so, in preparing you for a college education.
I am a junior at Lexington High School of Alabama. The family feeling here is amazing, but the academics is honestly terrible. I feel as though I have not been taught any of the subjects I am in. There are a few teachers who are incredible and care about the kids, but most of them are not concerned about anything regarding the children they teach. The administrators have honestly caused chaos and disorganization. Sports is held in high favor over academics or the arts.
