High school graduates in Lexington, Kentucky, are getting their very own high schools and the city is taking advantage of the opportunities created by the recent increase in enrollment, said city officials.
Lexington High School is on track to be the second highest in the city’s history, but the city has also invested in high schools in Oakland, according to the city.
Oakland High School will become the third highest school in the county after Oakland High and Woodlawn High School.
The city is also developing an additional high school in downtown Lexington.
In a statement, Oakland Mayor John Hinton said: ‘Lexington, Kentucky is proud to announce that our students will get their very first high school next week.
This is another step forward in our community’s ongoing efforts to create a better education for our students, which is at the heart of our mission.’
Lexington was ranked as the most segregated in the United States in the 2015-2016 school year, according the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
It ranked as among the least equal and most racially and ethnically diverse in the US in the 2016-2017 school year.
In 2016, the US Department of Education released data showing that black students in Lexington were more than twice as likely to be in remedial classes than white students.
The report also found that black boys and girls in Lexington had lower academic achievement than white boys and women.
The school year in Lexington is already on pace to be a record-breaking one for the city, with more than 2,000 students attending in grades 3-12, according data compiled by the city from the school district.
Lexicon, the capital city of Kentucky, is also home to a high school that opened in the early 1980s.
The school has more than 20,000 student enrollees, according a report from the Kentucky Educational Standards Commission.
Lexy High School, located on the north side of the city on the corner of Woodward Avenue and Broadway, has more students than any other high school on the city of Lexington.
The building, originally built in the 1920s and renovated in the 1990s, is on the third floor of a historic building that houses the city library and is the home of the school’s library and school board.
Lexyon’s school board has said that the school is planning to open a new building next year to accommodate the rising numbers of students.
The Lexington high school opened in 2009 and has a capacity of roughly 5,000.
In 2017, the school enrolled more than 3,300 students.
Oakton High School opened in 1974 and has more class sizes of about 5,400, according state records.
Oakville High School also opened in 1975, but closed in 2000.
