High level of positive energy and commitment from the well qualified faculty, guidance and administration. Their focus is on the whole student. Students are respectful and well dressed. They promote curiosity, self esteem and good citizenship. Couldnt be more impressed. Better than a private school in our area.

Great school. My daughter is currently a 6th grader, and doing great at Lexington. She loves it, has had no "middle school" issues, and enjoys going to school everyday. We like the fact that the school is an IB world school and takes a more integrated approach to learning than other middle schools. The administrators and teachers we have had contact with have all been excellent.

Great School! Very happy with our choice of middle schools. My son was in a charter school prior to attending Lexington Middle and he actually loves school now. So much better organized than the charter schools, no comparison.

This is the best school I have went to in my whole life. I'm a seventh grader but its my first year here and I think its amazing. The teachers are real nice and don't give out a lot of homework whitch is good. The teachers teach you well and don't slack off at all. I think I will have some real good years here at Lexington middle.

After moving from another state, I have found the programs to be quite disappointing. Very little educating is getting done. My children were in advanced classes in our other school, here advanced classes challenge them very little. They have been antagonized for being 'too smart' and are far from being nerds. Both are outstanding athletes in football and baseball, but still have a hassle from kids who think that it's not cool to be smart. Our other school the kids were admired for the most part, for excelling in both athletics and academics. There are no school athletics to speak of until high school as well. Everything is done by Pop Warner or little league. We have made a mistake moving into the Lee County school system.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
