Lexington Senior High School Reviews

Lexington's school environment made me feel safe. I did not experienced any bullying nor a witness of it. There may be a few fights once in a while, but that all depends on who you hang out with. When it comes to it academics, it has a variety of electives and core classes to choose from. Sometimes we are given the option on what core classes to take. For example, in my high school, we only need 3 science credits to graduate, but there are about 5 science classes, such as AP Earth Environmental, Chemistry, Biology, etc.. You can also take classes at the community school if you like. Lexington has a lot of diversity. It is pretty amazing because Lexington is such a small town. I am Hispanic and there are hundreds more along with me. Also Asians, African Americans, whites, even Indians!

Overall, this school was amazing but even though it has cons but the pros outweigh them. This school shares a bunch of diversity and students that are willing to learn. This school has tons of resources and tools to help me succeed towards the next level (college). The staff department is solid and have a great organization among the staff. But if you want to send your child to a school, I would definitely would consider Lexington Senior High.
The best thing about LSHS is the diversity of its students. Being around people of several different cultures has definitely helped me become open minded and branch out. It has also helped me embrace what makes me different and appreciate what makes up our individual cultures. Despite the lack of adequate support (i.e. good textbooks and resources for teachers), my experience at LSHS has been amazing. I've met many great people and teachers who have supported me even when I didn't believe in myself.
