I would be curious as to whom it was that tortured you, fellow students or the schoolwork itself. How many years of homeschooling did you have before graduating? If Lexington people are anti outsiders, then why is it so rare to find a NATIVE Lexingtonian in any venue in town. Even the U.S. Census Bureau has better figures than you distribute.

It always seems pretty easy to get along with the people here. Easier I would say than most places. Not 100% sure how it is for children though.

lexington is a great town for kids! Fairly small and compact and very family friendly. The schools are not too bad, but the private schools are much better.

My kids love it here. If you get into a neighborhood with lots of kids, you can expect them to have a lot of friends and spend the summers running back and forth between everybody's houses. I think most Lexington people are very accepting of outsiders.
