I am giving this school a 4 because, for the most par,t I have been happy with the experience my daughter has had the three years she has been there. However, Ms. Darlene Jackson, the assistant principle, leaves a lot to be desired. She is rude, at the very least, and not just to the kids, but the parents as well. She has spoke to my daughter several times in a way that I would never allow someone to talk to my child. My daughter is a straight A, beta club student, taking high school classes this year in 8th grade. For this assistant principle to be as rude and condescending as she has been is ridiculous. Mr. Smith the principle is fabulous. He cares very much about the students, and so do the teachers. I just wish Ms. Jackson was just as good.
I'm going into 8th grade at white knoll this past school year I had amazing school teachers in all my classes. I'm active in different events and club, one thing I love about white knoll is they have good clubs, activities, advanced classes, and sports. The school has some very very smart kids, the kids that aren't as smart just don't apply there selfs because the teacher try to help them and care about there grades. So if your wondering were to send your kids to school send them to white knoll middle as long as there willing to work.
I am a student at this school and it is terrible I love school but the teachers don't get when you don't understand something and the guidance counselor thanks she is helpful but she isn't this is a terrible school send your kids to Carolina springs!

Poor communication between staff & parents. Eight attempts made to contact ANYONE about my son's grades. Four times by return report card envelope & four times by leaving voicemails & messages in the office. Then when someone finally returns a call, they still put me off two weeks. When a student is in danger of failing, two weeks could mean the difference in pass or fail! Very disappointed, my child will be attending an online school net year.
I am a White Knoll Middle School student and I believe we deserve a 5. I chose a five not just because are school is awesome, but because Dr. Nancy Turner does a great job helping us with our schoolwork and keeps us on track. No wonder she was last years principal of the year for all of South Carolina.
As a parent of a Lexington One Student and a teacher in a different school system, I have found that parents are more to blame in lack of communication between the teacher and the parent. You can pick up the phone or send an email. Moreover, Administration has been wonderful to me, and I believe that Lexington one is one of the best in the state.
