I am a former Lexington Jr High student and attended this school from 1973 to 1976. I have found that this has always been a great school with great teachers and I enjoyed my years attending. They used to organize special events like Sadie Hawkins Day, Sock hop days, little kid days, and all kinds of others as well. During holidays, the school would arrange dance events. Lexington Jr High was a fun school, and I got along with many students and teachers as well. But it will forever remain a memory in my heart.
