Every student has been raised with the notion that getting Bright Futures is their moral duty, their teleology and basically job in life. For some it’s a prideful honor and for others it’s the deciding factor if they will attend their dream college or not. However, students are drowning in the stress...

Would you accept the vacation of your dreams knowing there was a catch? What if that catch was letting your parents have full access to the contents of your phone before you could clean it out?

You Can’t Sit With Us

As freshmen, the only preparation for high school is what is seen in the movies.  The yoga kids find tranquility on the campus grass while the alternative goth kids dance around a tree and the cheerleaders freely stunt and chant.  Let’s be real, none of this happens nor will it ever.  Yes high sc...

Tardiness: Another Bandaid on the Real Problem

Tardiness: Another Bandaid on the Real Problem

Kirsten K., Campus Editor

September 9, 2015

Let’s face it, SCPS is just smacking new band-aids on problems and not fixing the overarching situation- school starts too flipping early.  Reinforcing tardy sweeps and initiating detention time for the first tardy won’t make students show up to school any earlier, it’ll just cause the students...

Most students don’t know that our cafeteria is responsible for not only the meals they make for us, but for most of the other Seminole county schools as well.
