  • Attended Fall of 03- Spring of 07. Lanphier was alot of fun! I think I enjoyed it because I was involved in many sports and extracurricular activities. Teachers were always involved in school spirit just as much as the students were involved. As far as sports, I viewed our teams were average across the boards, but LHS has always performed well as a team in Men's Track and Field. I believe Mrs. Chard was the most involved Principle throughout my four years.

  • It might seem to be the most violent, but its not. It is the same as any other school in the district. We only seem bad because we are the only school that gets published about in the paper. Don't say its a bad school if you don't know all the facts. We are the same as everyone else and I will not let my school be called the most violent when its not.
