I am VERY PLEASED with Lexington!! My child came from a private elementary school and I was worry about transitioning to a public school. My child loves this school and is getting a great education! The office staff are so nice and friendly and I love Mrs. Brown's phone calls letting parents know what is going on at school. This school cares about their students academics and social being. I love their Kindness Matter program too!! Love this school so much!!

This is a horrible school. The teachers are good, but the office is horrible. They do not care about the students and will not help them if they are in need of help. I recommend that the office should get nicer people that will help the children out. My son was kicked out of the office when he needed help and the office had blamed him and said he should leave or go around the school to find someone that will help him.

I just love this school ! I have a boy that has IEP's and this is the BEST school for his special needs. They have an awesome team and always there to assist him and help him be the best him he can be. The after school homework is great and Ms. Fernandez (Special Day Class) is the BEST TEACHER ever ! She always keeps me informed of anything that needs to be addressed. Ans really goes the extra mile for her kids.

Last year I was so excited that my daughter was starting 7th grade at Lexington. I heard great things about the school and my daughter couldnt wait to attend. TERRIABLE SCHOOL!! The teachers at this school DO NOT CARE AT ALL ABOUT YOUR CHILDS EDUCATION. YOU CAN NEVER GET A HOLD OF A TEACHER. The principle and vice principles do not return your calls. They do not know how to deal with children. I was shocked and angry how they dealt with my daughter. I will be going to the Anaheim school district to complain about numerous incidents. PARENTS, SEND YOUR KIDS TO A DIFFERENT JR. HIGH. BEWARE!!

I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! I am an eighth grader and the thing i love most abouit the school is that 99.9% of the teachers care about each and every student and will do there best to make sure that they do the best they can. I had a great year as a seventh grader and this year has been just as amazing as well, if not, better :)))

I was so happy with this school! As with anywhere, there are great & not as great teachers. We were involved with a few that I would not label as a favorite, but only due to one being unorganized and another that my child didn't "connect" with. BUT I was fortunate to witness the best teacher I have ever seen in my life....Dr. Inman. I was so impressed with his teaching skills, his ability to interest the kids and the personal experience we had with turning a non interested child (in the subject) into an A student who discussed what was learned as part of daily conversation! I wish they could clone his DNA! As for homework, with all honors, I was actually impressed with the homework being very manageable and less than I had expected. The office staff, the grounds staff....everyone is wonderful to deal with! I have had no experience with principal/vice principal/counselors so I can't comment. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone! Parents who maintain active involvement in their children's academic career will thrive in this environment!

I hated this school! People say we got first place in Pentathlon, yea, but in devision 3!!!! Which hardly counts! THe catholic private school nearby got 3rd in division 1, and thats wayyyyyy better than us! And we only two electives a day which is like wasting 90 minutes of class! I learned to cut wood... how is that going to be beneficial in my future! And our english/lit program is one class. At the private school its two separate classes! I wish I went there!!!!! And on one other persons comment, it says we have the highest STAR rankings in our district, well we only have one other middle school in our district! And the private schools are in an independent thing, and they take a different test!!! Don;t go here!!!

This is the best school anywhere. The teachers are great, they don't force us around.. Not to mention we have the best athletic teams and educational teams, (while others study 5 or more months for the Penthathlon, we studied for less that a month and received 1st place with over 100 medals) not to mention we got the highest STAR test ranking scores in the District, woooot go LIONS.

Like any campus there are teachers that really care and some that don't. They don't respond to emails but will talk to you if you drop by the office. Overall they expect you to be grown up and know everything that's written down somewhere. With 30 kids per class, there isn't much individualized attention. Starting with matriculation, it looks like an efficient farm.

My oldest daughter is almost ready to graduate from Lexington and I have been very pleased with the staff and extracurricular activities. She has grown so much academically and emotionally because of great teachers and wonderful learning environment. I look forward to the next two years where my youngest daughter will be attending Lexington and she will get to fully enjoy all the construction that has take so very long to complete but in the end the campus is beautiful!

Lexington has been through alot of construction in the 2005 and 2006 year but it really has paid off. The future generations at the school will have a great time learning the the newly renovated rooms.

We are in our first year at Lexington. First impressions are important. Principal and staff seem to be very prepared and professional. The campus is under construction and causes some problems but I've not heard many complaints from my kid. We will keep I close eye out for the future.

A school devoted to showing special treatment for those who are in their little circle. Typical small town bias towards students who are new to the district.

Lexington Junior High is a top-rated school and I am happy to have my children go here. The administration is wonderful and the teachers are helpful and know their material well. My children have been able to participate in many after school activities and the school, despite going through major construction, offers many activities for its students. This school maintains its high standards and it shows with its API scores. Go Lions!

I have three children who attended Lexington last year. It was okay for my daughter, but wasn't the ideal school for my twin boys. Its a large school with a large student population and I felt that my kids got lost in the shuffle. The school is currently and has been under construction for the past two years.Consequently, to even be able to reach a teacher if you just had a question was a major ordeal. Most teachers didn't return calls for two days.There was not access to phone lines in any of the classes, my kids did not dress out for PE the entire year since they were renovating thelocker rooms and the first few weeks of school I had to call the principal to ask which water fountains worked.Report cards are generated through the district so it took atleast three weeks after the semester ended to receive their grades.

New Principal and Vice-Principal this year. Great teachers. High ratings in science, math and vocal/instrumental music. Winning track team and Academic Decathalon team. This school is very good at creating a feeling of unity among the students, teachers and administration.
