Well Raiders, here we are at the outset of yet another school year, another year of essays and math problems and projects and presentations and long nights and homework and friends and Homecoming and Prom and I’m exhausted thinking about it.

When I entered Leonardtown High School’s Academy of Global and International Studies (GIS) years ago, I knew I would have to complete a year-and-a-half long research project. My project’s looming deadlines stared over me as I ascended the ranks of high school - sophomore, junior, senior. As of now, my s...

When I started high school three years ago, I thought that by my senior year I would have one question thoroughly and distinctly answered. That question, dear readers, is the subject of college. High school students like myself are familiar with deadlines. They wait for us at the end of long weeks of ...

This year has been a long one, adorned with AP classes, AP exams, pre-tests, EOCs, sports, clubs, activities, teachers, friends, and I have had the pleasure of writing about a number of such things here at my post on the Imprint. My laundry list of assignments has been strangling my soul but I have done...

The 2015-2016 school year is finally coming to an end, and I know that everyone’s thankful for that, especially our seniors. Yes, everyone is tired, but with the end of the year comes the tons of end-of-the-year projects that no one really wants to do. But they do exist, and they can stand as significa...

Why won’t school just end already? I’m sorry, teachers and administrators; we’re all thinking it. We are tired of studying for AP tests,  throwing projects together, and scribbling essays. We are tired of math problems and science labs. I know I am not alone when I say the last day of school ca...
