About LTMS

  • Lexington Traditional Magnet School (LTMS) has a rich tradition of excellence in competitions, both academically and musically. World language courses offered at LTMS include Chinese and Latin.  Attendance at LTMS is offered via two tracks: Pathways and Traditional.

    Both programs offer students 21st century learning experiences through the 1:1 use of Chromebooks and Summit Learning. Core classes for both programs include Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Related Arts and Discovery courses, which vary according to program and availability, comprise the remainder of each student's schedule.

    The Pathways Program is an accelerated middle school program open to students in grades 6-8 which offers three different paths of study: STEM, Liberal Arts, and Visual & Performing Arts (VPA). Students may apply to a pathway for the following school year at any time during the FCPS open application window (August 15 - October 7). Each program has minimum entry criteria which must be met. Once criteria are verified, applicants are placed into the lottery pool for selection.

    The Traditional Program is a traditional middle school program open to students in grades 6-8 who live in the attendance area of LTMS which can be checked with the School Site Locator tool.
