However, the students brought up to the team one issue the school tends to overlook- access to the guidance department. Students planning on graduating have struggled to get...

As part of our core classes, history and social studies often get a bad reputation for being boring. Why focus on the past when we’ve got the present? However, the LMHS Social Studies department has managed to entertain and motivate students without fail, no matter what year or which class you find...

January 23, 2017

Although we don't get to ride around on hover boards, drive flying cars, or have self-drying clothes, "Back to the Future II" did ace the prediction of technological gadgets and systems being rapidly produced in the 2000s. If Marty McFly was sent back to the future and happened to visit today, I don't...

With almost 3000 students at Lake Mary high and nearly 800 parking spots it seems that we have a situation, a real situation. Every year we hear our school administration tell us "no parking pass= a towed car" and that is absolutely  fair when you have students paying $70 and not having a place to...

Freshman year offers once in a lifetime opportunities, many of which people are completely neglect. At first glance, freshman year can seem humiliating and pointless- it's a daunting task being the upperclassmen's muse.
