Lexington High School

Lexington High School offers a vigorous ensemble of academic and extra-curricular opportunities for students in a technology-rich learning environment. Recognized as an AdvancED/NCA Accredited School since 1914, LHS is one of the most culturally diverse schools in the state, with students coming from more than 40 countries and speaking greater than 30 languages. More than 25% of our students are identified as English Language Learners and first-generation immigrants/refugees. Graduation is a top priority at LHS. “Destination Graduation” is a schoolwide program that focuses on the academic, social and emotional needs of its students in a safety-first building. This relationship-driven environment is validated by 95% daily attendance and 91% cohort graduation rate averages the past five years. In the latest official state report (2017), our subgroups led the state graduation averages in virtually every category: All Students (LHS-92.4% vs. State of Nebraska-89.1%), Hispanic Students (93% vs. 82%), Poverty Students (92% vs. 82%), SPED Students (76% vs. 71%) and ELL Students (97% vs. 50%).  LHS’s commitment to integrity, relational leadership and high expectations has created a robust college- and career-ready culture. The Foundations of Leadership 9th grade “transition-in” and Passages 12th grade “transition-out” programs support numerous educational opportunities that include a full complement of dual credit offerings, rigorous honors curriculum for high ability learners, core-area SPED and ELL support co-taught classes, 90-minute block career and technical education courses, school-to community internships, an ELL academy with content-based instruction, reading classes that include Read 180 and System 44 curriculum support, after-school tutoring for all students, and assigned academic team coaches who guide before-school learning sessions for all athletic teams.  LHS has been recognized as a 2016 NASSP “Breaking Ranks Showcase School,” 2016 U.S. News “America’s Best High Schools” recipient, and 2017 CSSR/NEAS&C National “Student-Centered Showcase School.”
