A mere scone’s throw from Boston (12 miles northwest), Lexington is a small metropolis with a plentitude of high-tech industries that keep the local job market thriving. It’s also rich in U.S. history: the Battles of Lexington and Concord, where the American Revolution’s first shots were fired, took place here. Most of the town’s children — 93 percent to be precise — attend the excellent public schools.
With a population of 2,000, Lexington High School is large but manages to sustain an outstanding academic reputation: Students choose from a wide array of college prep courses, extracurricular activities, and interscholastic sports. In the spirit of giving back, each pupil must put in 40 hours of community service.
