Lexington has good academics considering it's in the boonies. The amount of advanced classes are impressive and the teachers are excellent. There is a huge lack of diversity in the school and its electives and there is the typical emphasis on sports seen in small schools. Athletics are well-supported in the community and receive good funding for the size of the program. Clubs are small and usually joined to put on a resume. Parents are heavily involved (sometimes too much) in school events and are well-connected with teachers due to everyone being either related to each other or attending church together. Facilities are as well-kept as they can expect to be for their age, although the fine arts facilities are woefully undersized. The school is very safe (having just earned a SRO who is very diligent about his job). Overall, it is an intelligent school and prepares its students well for the world after high school.

I enjoy coming to school here, the people are nice, the teachers too. Most everyone gets along here and there's minimum disagreements in Lexington. I've made a lot of good friends that I wouldn't trade for anything, friends that I trust with everything I have, a boyfriend who treats me like a princess, the people here are amazing.

The only problem I have is it's a strong religion based community so the school is as well. I feel a little pushed to attend church sometimes. This community is also very "sporty". I enjoy going to football games, but I am in the band so I play at half time. The other sports like attention.
Our school has amazing opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular opportunities, though the "clubs" themselves might not be equally treated. The football team is the most favoured team, getting most of the funding and new equipment most often. Next is the volleyball team. On the bottom of the list though, even though it has more people in it than the football team, is the band.

We all have a lot have fun even though some sports are liked more, we all stick to it though and we know we do great.
