Top teachers, involved parents, great community with many quality of life assets. Academic excellence is a focus.


Posted November 2, 2005

I have had four children in this school. I have been extremely pleased with the education they have received. The teachers are always willing to help anyone who is having trouble and always encourages parent involvement. Parent involvement is a big part of Lexington schools. You can see parents participating at all levels. Teacher quality is a high priority in Lexington. They only hire qualified teachers. Extracurricular activities are always high. Everyone gets to play and has a great fan base. Leadership on all levels of the school is high. Safety and discipline is enforced at all times. I would highly recommend this town and it's school to anyone who is looking for a nice place in which to move. Lexington is the greatest!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
