  • The high school only seems to care about the kids that fit their mold. Their staff and administration for the most part do not return phone calls or treat parents with the common courtesy they deserve.

  • I graduated from Lexington High School, and I can tell you, judging from the other schools in the area, it's one of the better ones. In my opinion, if you don't like the school, THEN DON'T GO THERE!! I'm sure Pelion would be glad to have you.

  • i think that this school is like a magical forest. filled with magical elves and unicorns scurrying and galloping around the gumdrop mountain. little angray red faced dwarves making all types of metals and mirrors. and a golden pear named Gaspachio who can help you with you math homework and get rid of bullies nad help you talk to girls. its wonderful.

  • I felt the LHS had a family atmosphere. However, the education level was laking somewhat. I felt the school had more to desire as far as science and History education. I felt like I was being passed just to be passed. I felt like it was a safe school. seeing how we had a police officer as a principle that would not hesitate to pull his badge out (pre-resource officer days). Pros: Good family type atmosphere Cons: TO MANY LIBERAL/DEMOCRAT TEACHERS!

  • I think what that person said about how she hated going to lexington High School was wrong and I think Lexington High school is awesome and has fun things for us to do.
