  • LG....what can I say? I'm a senior this year and all I can say is that I will really miss this school! Mr. G is the BEST principal any student could ask for...he encourages everyone to do their best and to never give up! The teachers are also great! They do what ever they can to help us with anything! Even if it's something silly! So when I say that LG is the BEST high school anyone could attend...I really mean it!
