Vision

The mission of Lexington Elementary is to assist each child in developing academically, socially, physically, and emotionally to his or her fullest potential.  Our students will become literate, productive citizens of society who will succeed in and be able to compete on a global market in a technologically oriented world of the present and the future.

Mission

The proposed mission of the Lexington Pilot School is to prepare our students to become life long learners.  To do this, we will implement a program combining high academic and social expectations for the entire Lexington community in a safe and nurturing, motivating and engaging climate.

 

Location and Grades Served:

Lexington Elementary is located in the north central area of St. Louis city, more specifically, the Kingsway West neighborhood.  Lexington is the second building, at this site, with this name, replacing the old Lexington Elementary, and dedicated in 1995. We are located at 5030 Lexington Avenue.  Lexington Elementary has the unique distinction of being a school designed according to specifications of the staff and teachers.  Lexington currently serves approximately 420 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through grade five.  There are three pre-school classes, and three classes of each grade level K – Grade 3 two classes of Grades 4 and 5 classrooms. In addition, there is one pull out special education class, and one special education class using a combination push-in, pull out model serving students both with and without Individual Education Plans. There are two active Computer Labs as well as a Mobile Laptop Lab.  Our students in grades 3, 4, and 5 use iPads in their individual classrooms to promote research and development skills. We are proud to announce that our outdoor classroom has opened and we are enjoying fresh fruit and vegetables during the school year. This year we enjoyed our first crop of fresh peanuts.

 

Key Characteristics

Lexington enjoys a huge playground with a fenced off area for sports requiring a natural ground cover.  It is beautifully landscaped and maintained by staff and students.  We also have two garden areas maintained by students in two gardening programs, one sponsored by the district.  Gardening, social studies, science, and physical education classes are held outside to enhance hands on learning experiences.

 

Lexington enjoys many community partnerships.  Among them is the availability of the building to community organizations and individuals.  The building is in use after school hours for after school programming, after school care, community exercise programs, and sports activities.  The building is also used on the weekends by various community groups for special activities.

 

Lexington is known for its welcoming culture.  A visitor is first met by beautiful plants and a huge banner stating the school pledge’s dedication to respect, courtesy, and a love for reading and learning.  Next to our school pledge is an information board sharing information for visitors and parents.  Also, in our lobby is a trophy case displaying awards received for academic, humanitarian, and sports excellence, as well as mementos from past and present staff members.  Our bulletin boards are also well known for their appearance and teaching.  It is readily apparent that Lexington values reading and a love of learning.  Many visitors comment that they learn from our academic displays and visitors can often be found studying our bulletin boards for information as well as for enjoyment.

 

Lexington’s recent progress toward accomplishing its mission and vision is the result of implementing deliberate strategies over time that involve and are embraced by the entire school community.  The school has created a climate for learning through utilizing local partnerships, growing students who love to read and learn, expanding parental involvement, and creating a learning environment that utilizes a well developed blend of current best practices, as well as former best practices that research indicates were successful in meeting the needs of all students.  Lexington prides itself in educating all students “by any means necessary”.
