    old courthouse  

    We began instruction in our current building in July, 2003. At that time, we were located in a country pasture. Since then, several housing developments have been created. Lexington Commons and Southwinds provide affordable housing and new neighbors. They are within walking distance and/or bus service is also provided to the school.
