I guess it really depends on what you are looking for. We wanted a Christian school, and chose Northside Christian Academy in Lexington-and are very happy with it. Ben Lippen is also a christian school, but we chose against there (it's also not in Lexington). If you want to PM me, I can give you more info on why.
Hammond is a non-christian private school, but they have been around a long time, and have excellent academics & sports. They are also quite a ways from Lexington.
If you want Lexington specific, Northside is the only one with k-12, Ben Lippen is close, but not in Lexington.

we moved here 6 months ago from Ohio we now live in Lexington . at first we rented in Columbia near downtown and knew we did not want to buy in that area . We met a real estate agent and she recommended Lexington and we looked and we bought a house in Lexington and we have socialized more here in the last 6 months than we did the five yrs in ohio and the 6 previous years in florida . People here are not superficial for the most part and not stuck up either . People are people here and friendly as all get out and the kids have manners here which I noticed sorely lacking in other areas of the country .My kids like florida and they stay in florida but Florida was seriously not for me . We have made our home in Lexington and we could have also moved anywhere but when we got here and started searching we knew this is home and we are so blessed .

Smile Go for it!

W moved here to Lexington from Boston about a month ago. The traffic they complain about here is NOTHING compared to Atlanta (Or Boston). It's a beautiful area and many family friendly, beautiful neighborhoods to choose from! I say go for it! The schools in Lexington are decent and there are plenty of private schools to look at as well. My 12 year old son is adjusting slowly. He hasn't made many connections at school, but starting to come out of his shell at school. (He too is not 12 going on 16, he still plays legos and isn't embarrassed by me..yet lol) Once the weather is nicer, we'll be outside more so opportunity to meet more kids in the neighborhood. Good luck!
