|Lexington High School, River Bluff High School, and Gray Collegiate Academy will offer a joint College Fair, to be held at Lexington High School on Tuesday, October 25 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. This fair, also known as Ed-Op (Educational Opportunities Day) is open to all juniors and seniors and their parents, and will be held in the LHS Cafeteria.
Approximately 65 colleges, universities, and career schools will be on hand to discuss opportunities available on their campuses. Juniors/seniors and their parents from both schools are asked to park either on the Main Office side of the campus, the bus parking lot, LTC, or the gym lots, as the parking lot next to Old Farm Road is reserved parking for the College representatives.
A list of questions and tips about attending college fairs and getting the most out of this experience will be sent out to all juniors and seniors prior to the fair, and will be posted on the LHS Counseling website. Also, a list of colleges and universities that will be attending will be posted soon. Junior and seniors may want to consider pre-printing labels with your name, address, and possible major to bring to the fair with you as colleges usually have an information card for you to complete so that they can stay in contact with you. This will save you time at the fair in providing this information to colleges.
Lexington County School District One and all of its schools are participating in a continuous improvement process through AdvancED. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K through Grade 12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential and help schools improve.
As a parent, you have an important role in this process.
Lexington High School is using the AdvancED Parent Survey to get your opinions. There are five sections on the survey representing the five AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems. Your answers to the survey will help our school by giving us your expectations as parents of a high-quality school system, by helping us target areas in which we need to improve and by identifying areas in which we continue to be effective.
Soon you will receive information on how to access the survey. Thank you for supporting our school by completing the parent survey.
