LHS Student of the Month
Jack Chase is a senior that quietly helps his fellow LHS community. He is a student that excels in many ways but is very quiet in all of the kindness he offers his fellow students. Faculty members have had the pleasure of working with Jack not only in regular classes, but also through a variety of extended learning opportunities that he has pursued. He is currently taking a Dartmouth Course in Calculus, and has also made it possible for other LHS students to participate in the Dartmouth Special Community Program. Jack helped a fellow student with transportation, and most critically with navigating the social cues that are required to access a college course as a high school student. Jack carries a 3.7 GPA, works very hard, and is always willing to help others without any recognition. He is truly selfless. Entering his freshman year he was not a highly engaged student, but he did a 180 and now plans to be an engineer. He sees a clear path for his life and believes that he can help his classmates in the process. Jack is that inquisitive student who seeks out answers and solutions effectively and autonomously. He does so with wit and grace. We are very proud to name him our latest Student of the Month.
Congratulations to Jack!
Students are nominated for their genuine interest in learning, respect for fellow students and faculty, contributions to the school community, and/or overcoming adversity. Students are first nominated and then voted on by faculty & staff.

Students from all over New England come together to prepare and rehearse music with renowned conductors and educators, and then perform a concert that night. It is a great experience and an honor to be accepted.
