Our school is on the south side of Lexington near the Wellington subdivision and the recently developed Wellington Park. The native gardens, wildlife and walking trails there provide additional learning opportunities for our students.

The school's own cutting-edge features go beyond the "green" physical structure. The combination of core content and focus on 21st century skills redefine rigor, preparing our students for a challenging and rapidly evolving world.

What makes our school special

At the time, Wellington Elementary was designed to be the most energy efficient and sustainable school in Fayette County. The nearly 76,000-square-foot facility is itself a teaching tool. | GreenTouchscreen

Sustainable efforts such as solar energy panels, a rainwater capture and reuse system, a solar hot water system, permeable pavers, rain gardens and automatic electric lighting controls are visible to students and provide opportunities for classroom involvement and instruction.

Wellington also offers an outdoor classroom, designated recycling areas and native landscaping.
