IRMO – Niche.com has released its 2022 Best Schools in America rankings, and Lexington-Richland School District Five was again named as a top school district in South Carolina and the number one school district in the Midlands.

“What an incredible honor it is for School District Five to be named, once again, as a top school district in South Carolina,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Akil E. Ross, Sr. “Our district staff, school leaders, teachers and support staff are truly dedicated to making District Five a great place to work and learn. For all 10 areas to be graded at the "A" rating (A- to A+) is evident that the work of our staff is valued and that our community is informed.”

 

The website’s ranking also shows that Spring Hill High School is the top Magnet High School in the Midlands and the second best in South Carolina.
