On Student Culture & Diversity: While most of the students are open and friendly, with many types of people to meet, ignorance can be seen throughout the school. Lexington is made up of mostly white, christian, middle to upper class families. Most students are awkward when dealing with people of different faiths and/or sexuality mainly because they are not exposed to it. Tradition can be seen and is good but it is also what is keeping the students from accepting each other fully.

On Overall Experience: While there are some things I do wish to change if i could relive my high school years, my experience is special to me. I have met friends and grown as a person in all aspects of my life. I have become more confident as a person through Lexington Highschool, and I am confident that because of my time there i will become a positive member of not just the society, but to the whole world.

On Sports & Fitness: Sports is a huge thing at Lexington, especially Football. Whenever i went to a home game the energy was high and the spirits were always good. There is a team of students called the "Cat Crazies" who help cheer on the school's sports teams.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: I have not been able to partake in many extracurricular through the school due to activities i have chosen to do instead. I go to karate, spend time with family and spend a good portion of my time studying. While i have sacrificed having "fun" in high school for studying, i do not feel like my high school experience was lacking.

High School Senior

On Teachers: All the teachers are knowledgeable and capable of teaching. They put their all into helping a student; only if the student wants to however. While some can be strict, most are friendly and students are able to create a bond with them, making the 90min block pass by faster.
