From the Faculty and Staff of Lexington High School:
Thank you for visiting our webpage and for your interest in our school! We hope this site can answer your questions, provide useful resources, and give a snapshot of Lexington High, where our students thrive in academics, arts, athletics, leadership, and service.
Over the past few years, we have all experienced a new normal. Through a global pandemic, we learned a lot about our own adaptability and resilience. We also had to adjust our approaches to teaching, learning, assessment, and the overall high school experience. At times, our students experienced the emotional unrest that results from change and uncertainty. Through the uncertainty, we have also seen beautiful examples of joy and generosity of spirit from our students. At LHS, we spend time reflecting, asking hard questions, and investing our energy into ensuring that our school models a commitment to empowering each child every day.
Through our experiences, we have reflected on our most important work and gained clarity in our purpose. This year, our school will work towards the development of a balanced profile of the Wildcat graduate. Our young men and women will be the designers of the future, and through their time at LHS, both in the classroom and in their extracurricular experiences, we aim to grow them in four specific dimensions:
- Essential Knowledge - the most important and enduring knowledge needed to continuously advance discovery in all fields.
- Future-Ready Skills - the competencies and behaviors that will allow each graduate to contribute and thrive in an ever-changing workforce.
- Self-Awareness and Identity - growing in the knowledge of individual strengths, backgrounds, and goals, while valuing the unique and diverse gifts of others.
- Agency and Impact - self-efficacy, the belief that our education, decisions, and actions matter, and that we can all contribute to the improvement of our community and world.
Our students are brave, creative, and inspiring. They are gloriously diverse but share a common journey together as Lexington Wildcats. We hope that we can ensure each student has an experience that provides balance and a stable foundation in an exciting and constantly changing future, as we have done for over 110 years.
Stay tuned to our district and school websites and follow us on social media for the most current news. We will continue to advocate for each of our students, pushing them to be the very best versions of themselves, to proudly represent their families and cultures, and to work diligently to strengthen our collective community.
At Lexington High School, we will equip our students to honor their traditions, seize today’s opportunities, and design our future.
Hail to Thee!
