Lexington MA Heads Back to School!

Lexington Ma has experienced a great summer with long, hot days and plenty of fun events to enjoy the Lexington community! For many, this season is coming to a close as Lexington schools kick off their first day of school tomorrow. It’s an exciting time for teachers and students to get back into the swing of all that the Lexington school systems have to offer!

Lexington is home to an outstanding public education system consisting of six elementary schools, two middle schools and a high school. There are also a handful of private schools from which to choose along with the well-known Cotting School, which was the first day school in the United States for children with disabilities which opened in 1893. Last week, Governor Deval Patrick was given $204 million dollars from the Federal Education Jobs Fund to distribute to Massachusetts schools. This translates into $449,361 additional aid for Lexington schools for the 2011 fiscal year.

Lexington has allocated much of these funds towards investing in teachers, and have hired sixty new teachers for the coming school year. Robert Harris, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources for Lexington Public Schools stressed that it’s “Our responsibility to put the best teachers we can possibly get in the classroom to teach the children. This is our ultimate responsibility.” Governor Patrick feels the same as he noted that “Great schools are the key to our future, and great teachers are the key to great schools.” Of the additional funds, he added “We are building a better, stronger future for our kids, our communities and our Commonwealth.”

The Lexington School system is just one of the many reasons many are choosing to dig their roots into Lexington MA. Families know that a great education system is key to building into the lives of children and a strong community. Homes in Lexington come in a variety of styles and price ranges. If you’re looking to buy one of the beautiful Lexington homes, now is an ideal time! Mortgage rates are the lowest the nation has seen since 1971 and home prices are very reasonable.

If you have questions about the Lexington MA school system or are interested into diving into the Lexington MA Real Estate market; please let me know! I enjoy helping people find the Lexington home of their dreams! I look forward to hearing from you!
