High School and family friendly neighborhoods in Lexington

We are entretaining a job offer at the University in Lexington (for dad, mom would look for employment as a Physical therapist) and heard Lexington high school is not very good.

We have a Freshman so that is important for us.

Would anyone care to comment on Lexington schools? Is there any town (up to 30 min of Lexington) with better high school?

What are the family friendly areas in or around Lexington?

thank you so much!!!
