State Report Cards

Lexington Local Schools earned an “Excellent” rating on the most recent report card issued by the Ohio department of Education. This marks the 11th consecutive year of an “Excellent” rating. This type of continued achievement is only possible through the dedication and commitment of school and community.

Over the past several years, Lexington has continued to improve its scores on the performance indicators from the state used to determine the report card rating. These achievements are a reflection of our teachers’ expertise and their commitment to maximizing each student’s academic growth. They reflect the hard work, focus of our students and parents, and their dedication.

 

Mission Statement

"The Lexington Local Schools, through a partnership with our children's families and our community, will provide the BEST possible curricular and co-curricular opportunities to challenge all students to reach their highest potential, to enjoy learning and to make positive contributions within their homes and communities."

Career Development

9th Grade

Session 1: Students will continue work within the OhioMeansJobs site in the "Explore It" section. Under this tab, the students will take an assessment in the Career Profile section to discover and understand their work personality and work interest code. The premise of this code is to match individuals with other individuals (who love their job) and share the same interests as they do. If a student can match their passions with other individuals who love their profession, then it is reasonable to say that they would like that same profession. Consequently, once students discover what their interest code is, they can then search for careers that engage those interests. The comprehensive  O*NET website will be introduced to students to help them conduct career searches based on their interest code and Learning Style (6th grade survey activity that was saved in the "back pack").

Grades 10, 11, and 12

Company mentorships are in the developing stages but eventually these mentorship relationships will help students decide if they want to further pursue that occupation/field.
