Students in high school take the New York State Regents exams. Students must pass five exams (e.g. mathematics, science, global history, American history, English Language Arts) to obtain a Regent's Diploma.
Students who are planning on applying to college take the ACT. The ACT is a standardized test used for college admissions. The ACT test covers four academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. It also offers an optional direct writing test.
Lexington offers tutoring assistance to help students prepare for the Regents Exams and the ACT. Tutoring assistance is funded by a grant from Title One of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Extracurricular activities and athletics play an important role in the lives of teens. Participation provides opportunities to build self-esteem, develop feelings of belonging, and build self-confidence and discipline. Activities help students practice leadership skills, develop career interests, and provide connections to mentors, internships and future employers. See our Student Life page for more information.

Each classroom utilizes a research-based approach, Thinking Maps, to support learning. Thinking Maps are visual patterns linked to eight specific thought processes. By visualizing their thinking, students create concrete images that support critical and creative thinking. Thinking Maps are used throughout the entire Middle School curriculum.
