Lexington Public Schools
Department of Athletics
The Lexington Public Schools Department of Athletics is committed to providing "athletics for all students." In the Lexington Public Schools, we believe that competitive and recreational athletics are an integral part of the educational process and experience. Students should have opportunities to participate and compete as appropriate to their interest and skills.
Lexington values the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation: the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork; ethical and responsible behavior on the field and off; adherence to the spirit of rules as well as to their letter; leadership and strength of character; and sportsmanship -- including respect for one's opponents, acceptance of victory with humility, acknowledgment of defeat with grace, and respect for the value of cross-cultural understanding and acceptance. In teaching these lessons to its students, Lexington instills habits that will lead students to better and healthier lives. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that the efforts by our interscholastic teams to be their best will lead them to succeed.
Athletic participation is a way for students to grow and learn and enjoy themselves and to use and develop their personal, physical and intellectual skills. The entire Lexington Athletic Department, including coaches, training staff, and administrators, work to achieve these goals, and honor the values of the school district, and support the principles of the Middlesex League and the MIAA.
