Get started with SchoolTutoring Academy's tutoring programs for Lexington, North Carolina students.
Lexington District and Curriculum
Lexington is situated in the heart of the Piedmont plateau region and offers a blend of rural and urban areas. Lexington City Schools are home to six total schools and uses a balanced calendar in which students get fewer weeks off for the summer but that builds in two two-week breaks in the fall and spring, helping to curb students’ losing material as a result of the long summer break; this calendar also provides bonus learning times to provide remediation and extra support to students on days during the fall and spring breaks. The district follows North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study to meet appropriate grade-level targets in all subjects.
We currently cover the following Lexington-area school district: Lexington City Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lexington District Curriculum
In accordance with North Carolina’s Excellent Schools Act, Lexington City Schools have incorporated the third grade Read to Achieve program. The goal of this program is that all students be able to read at or above grade level by the end of their third grade year so that they can go on to proficiently read, comprehend, and apply complex texts in order to ultimately be college-ready. The middle school language arts program requires that students do a great deal of reading, and be able to comprehend and analyze the material.
Intervention programs and supports for students who are not on target to reach this goal include accelerated reading classes, individualized instruction or tutoring, and summer reading camps. The Reading 3D assessment is delivered on a digital platform three times per year to students in grades K-5 to monitor their progress in several areas of literacy, including foundational skills and comprehension. The skills are measured as students read passages from leveled readers.

Keeping Informed: Recent Lexington Educational News
- Charles England Third Graders Bring Historical Figures to Life - Charles England Elementary recently held its second annual Famous Person Wax Museum during which students, parents, and teachers had the opportunity to learn about important historical figures. The third graders were allowed to portray any individual who had a positive impact on society—figures included Steve Jobs, Cleopatra, Benjamin Franklin, and Michelle Obama—and dressed up as and recited a biography that they created of the person. The project truly allowed the historical figures to come to life.
- LMS Student Wins Citywide Spelling Bee - A Lexington Middle School seventh grader spelled the word imperative correctly in order to win the Lexington City Schools 2016 Spelling Bee. She only had three days to study a large binder of spelling terms, but she took home the $200 prize from the Jacket Academic Booster Club and will go on to represent the school district at the upcoming regional spelling competition. The second place winner also came from Lexington Middle School, while the third place finisher was a fourth grader from Pickett Elementary; both also received cash prizes from the booster club.
- Elementary Students Create Posters, Poems for Bullying Prevention - To recognize National Bully Prevention Month, Charles England Elementary guidance counselor Stacie Thompson had students in grades 1-4 create posters and fifth graders write poems for bullying awareness. The fifth graders each wrote two poems from the perspectives of a bully, victim, bystander, or upstander (someone who stands up to a bully). They were given prompts such as “I pretend…” and “I feel…” that helped bring out various emotions in the students and their poems.

Chalk Talk: Activities in a Middle School Social Studies Lesson on Nationality
The following is a description of the learning activities in a middle school social studies lesson on nationality. There are several principle learning activities involved in this project. First, the students will use the Ellis Island website to trace their family history and subsequently create family trees. Secondly, they will work in groups of four and write scripts and act out plays about immigrants coming to America from foreign countries through Ellis Island. Thirdly, they will create the flags of their countries and write at least three interesting facts about them on the back. Next, they will draw and color maps of their countries and recite their capital cities to the class. After that, they will create interactive timelines and describe what they think is the most significant historical event in their countries to the class.
