Welcome to the Lexington County School District Three website.  I am deeply honored to have been chosen to serve as the Interim Superintendent of this outstanding district during the 2019-2020 academic year.


Lexington County School District Three has a long history of excellence and we are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff.  The current school year promises to be especially exciting as we will be celebrating the graduation of our 100th class in June 2020.


The District’s shared vision of “Preparing Students for the Future Now” is evident through our District’s success in academics, athletics, and the arts.  Without question, the District values 21st Century learning.  We are committed to ensuring that our students have the knowledge, attitudes, and skills (including critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity, and innovation) they need for lifelong success.


Please know that we welcome and solicit the community’s help and support in propelling the District into even greater heights of success in the year ahead.  Thank you for visiting the Lexington County School District Three website.  Having you visit in our schools would be most appreciated as well.


Respectfully yours,


Stephen W. Hefner, Ed.D.

Interim Superintendent
