Principal's Message

Welcome to Lexington School!


Our Mission Statement:

Lexington Elementary School aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, Lexington encourages students to become ethical citizens of the world who are active, compassionate lifelong learners.


I am so excited to return to Lexington School after 11 years away. I began my "Wildcat" teaching career at Lexington School in 1997 and helped bring the International Baccalaureate program to Lexington with my colleagues a few years later in 2007. After six years living in Norway and working at an IB school and then returning stateside to work in Mill Valley where I continued to support global education initiatives, it was time to return to my roots! 


I am so excited to work in an IB environment again despite the restraints COVID has put upon all of us. The Lexington staff and community are dedicated to developing life long global citizens and nothing will stop us! I appreciate everyone's patience, empathy, and resilience during this time, and I look forward to working with this community (again). 


2020 will be a different school year for sure, but let's continue to move forward and make Lexington an even more exceptional IB Primary Years Program World School. 


Yours in global education,


Jason Deppong
