My sister just graduated from this school, and she told me that she like her school. She told me that the teachers cared about her. My sister behaved really well in this school. Yes, I will admit that even though she was eager to learn and have good grades, she was limited because she had no one help her with homework. Also, my son will be going to the state preschool of Lexington Elementary and I will come back to review the school for the preschool teachers in this school.

My son was in Ms. Hartmans class, a special ed class. The teacher is in my opinion one of the best in her field. She made sure that all the kids had the kind of attention they needed. She made sure that not only the kids with more severe behavior problems got all the attention as they often do. My son excelled in her class. I almost took my son out of the school do to the school rateing Number (2) but Im glad he stayed in her class. And I can only thank Ms. Cathy Conner at Sevik Who highly recomended Ms. Hartman.

My daughter went to Lexington for 3 years from K-3rd grade. The teachers there are great and the school puts alot of focus on getting along and respecting others and resolving conflicts through discussion and compromise. I found the programs there helpful. My daughter had a problem with studdering and they provided at school a language threapist and she improved after a short time. I would recommend this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
