The school will be starting a year-round schedule. They took one month from summer vacation and placed it as two-week segments within the regular school calendar. However, students are not required to come on these extra days. This is a low-income communiy. Education is bad, but historically, it has been bad...especially as administrators have been changing grades for years... I think the administration needs to listen to their teachers and ask them how to reach the students who are behind academically. Everyone does not have internet... or transportation to afterschool and during school events... They need to focus on building up and sharing community resources. The year-round schedule interferes with free summer camp opportunities, free food programs and student employment and academic opportunities. This was a bad decision forced on parents... they did not consider the needs of the community...and are still not offering many resources. The school reflects administration...
I just moved to LSHS from other state and I am very pleased how the students behave inside and outside of the classroom. Students here are more respectful, hard working, and motivated to do the work. The administrators are awesome and very supportive.
This school is an improving curriculum, some very dedicated teachers, and some who are not as dedicated. The new school administration is changing things for the good and making this a better more rigorous school.
I started out in this school system in elementary and a year of middle school, but I left for 7th-11th and now I'm back for my senior year. Having gone to another school and seen things that go on in other places Lexington is actually in my eyes better than most schools in Davidson County, but Lexington is always the ones getting called out on their mistakes. So, I say before you talk about another school find out what's going on in yours. Lexington is a great school system and I wouldn't want to graduate anywhere else.
There are some stellar teachers at LSHS .It is a good school but needs to have more AP courses and stronger administrative leadership. Many of the teachers feel they are not really supported by the principals.
I attend LSHS and i believe it is a wonderful school that teaches you to cope with diversity and prepares you for the real world. Despite all the bad things that are said about LSHS it really is a positive environment with caring teachers who do everything in their power to help you become susful. And with the new administration I see a positive future for all of us.
I Have been in this school system all my life and lots of people think this school is so bad. I feel more safe at my school than I do anywhere else. in other schools they have guns brought to school beacuse of students having too much freedom before they have an adequate amount of responsibility
