The American Dream, for many, includes being able to own a home of one’s own. With the economy improving in many areas of the country, that dream can finally become a reality.
Many Millennials have postponed the purchase of their first home while waiting for the economy to recover. This has increased demand and dramatically lowered vacancy rates. In a recent article on the MarketWatch, economics reporter Ruth Mantell explains:
Lexington County School District One is the number one place to lead, learn and live.
Thanks to tremendous community support, our students benefit from a high-performance learning culture that prepares them to be a new generation of leaders and global citizens who are self-directed, creative, collaborative, caring and multilingual.
Our Schools of the Future — Now! initiative and its three components — LexLeads, LexLearns and LexLives — guide our graduates as they become confident in academics, accomplished in 21st century skills, global in orientation and sophisticated in learning.
We focus on providing students with quality, personalized learning experiences that support their development in four essential 21st century skills that we refer to as the 4 C’s — critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
Lexington One serves more than 24,000 students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 with more than 3,550 employees (not including substitutes) and 30 schools (17 elementary schools; seven middle schools; five high schools and one technology center). The district also has an alternative learning program called FOCUS.
The 360 square miles that make up Lexington One stretch from the banks of Lake Murray to the county’s southern border with Aiken County. Our district occupies 48 percent of the county’s 750 square miles and is one of the county’s major employers. 2010 Census Data shows Lexington County’s population as 262,391 and the area that makes up Lexington One’s population as 121,030 or 46 percent of the county.
During the past 10 years (2003–2013), Lexington One grew by an average of 511 new students per year. The district remains one of the fastest growing school districts in the state, ranking ninth in the state using the 2013–2014 135-day headcount released by the S.C. Department of Education (Greenville, Charleston, Horry, Berkeley, Richland 2, Aiken, Dorchester 2, Richland 1, Lexington One).
To keep up with the growth, Lexington has built 12 new schools since 2003.
