To the person who wrote they did not like their 5th grade year at Lexington Elementary School. I think you may have the wrong school. There was no Mrs. Ackley there in 6th grade. There was a Mrs. Hurley who taught a 5/6 combination class in 1966/1967 and she was FANTASTIC. In 1967/1968 Mrs. Hurley taught 6th grade only. The principal, Mrs. Irene Vita, was incredible. Another great teacher was Mr. Miller. I do not believe there was a teacher named Mrs. White. I started Kindergarten at this school and went through 6th grade graduating in 1968 to attend Jr. High and High School with a solid educational foundation. Thanks to this great school.
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.
I did not enjoy 5th grade at this school. It was 1966-67 and Mrs. Marjory White was mean. All she did was knit. I was absent when she started the class on knitting, so, when I returned from my illness, I had no idea what I was doing and she had absolutely no patience to show me how. I couldn't stand her and I would never recommend her as a teacher! Of course, she had passed away. The teaching field is better off without her! The reason I gave the school a 5 star rating is because I loved my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Ackley (1967-68. She was the BEST!
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 son was in a special ed kinderclass, with his teacher, ms. hartman. she was wonderful very helpful and taught my son very well. he was always excited be going to a fun learning envirmont. The staff at lexington is just as wonderful.
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.
I have found that the staff here is very responsive to your requests to place your child in a class with a teacher compatable with your kids.
