Lexington County School District One and each of its schools participate in a continuous improvement process.
Coordinated through AdvancED, a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K through Grade 12 schools and school systems, this process ensures that all learners realize their full potential, that our district and our schools constantly improve, and that we continue to maintain a high quality school system.
