The Lexington School Philosophy

Because we are a nurturing environment, children feel confident.
When children are confident, they will take risks.
Because risk taking is inherent in learning, the possibility of failure exists.

When a nurturing community exists, challenges lead to growth.
Our success is defined when our students have the life skills to make wise choices and overcome obstacles.

The Lexington School Mission

The mission of The Lexington School is to provide an education of the highest quality to students in preschool through middle school. In a structured, nurturing environment, The Lexington School seeks to instill integrity, a life-long enthusiasm for learning, and a strong work ethic.
