A strong strategic plan is not a checklist . It is a map that has many options for travel--short paths and long ones , easy ones , and ones that stretch us to the limit . The Lexington School ’ s 2020 Strategic Vision looks to the future with confidence in the School ’ s impact on the next generation of students who learn here and in their impact on the world beyond themselves .
We will maximize the potential of each child at The Lexington School through a focused program of academic excellence , engaging , challenging , and cohesive experiences . The programs of the school will prepare every student intellectually , socially , and emotionally for the world in
at The Lexington School . Our students will live in a world where information will be readily available but the wisdom to analyze , interpret , and apply it to complex challenges will be critical .
The priorities and goals of the 2020 Strategic Vision provide many paths for the fulfillment of this vision and with the understanding that it requires the commitment of everyone within the School community to assure its success . Our gifted faculty , dedicated parents , and the students themselves will collectively stretch and grow through this work . We will achieve more than we know and feel the reward of a purpose beyond ourselves when we have succeeded .
