Our school, which opened in 1976, was named for Julius Marks, whose son had given land to the city of Lexington to build a sanitarium with the agreement that a school be named for his father. The residents of the Georgetown Road area wanted to keep the name Booker T. Washington for a school being constructed on another site, so the Marks' heirs gave permission to use their name for the next school.


What makes our school special

Our students, parents, families and staff make our school special. All groups work together to ensure learning and to make events like our annual fall carnival a success.

Students are expected to learn at high levels through engaging, hands-on instruction. Inquiry projects are developed through authentic, real-world writing. Technologies, including document cameras, are used in every-day instruction for empowering students to share their work.

Band and orchestra are available during the school day, and we offer many after-school activities including chorus, Girls on the Run, the Student Technology Leadership Program, Academic Challenge teams, science club, art club, fitness club, and writing club. Through such programs, students are ensured the opportunity to extend their learning during and after school.
