The Lighthouse is produced by approximately 44 students across three sections of the journalism elective class taught by Ms. Tanya Pastor.

A print copy of the newspaper is published monthly between November and June. Electronic copies are available on issuu.com/lhslighthouse or in this Google Drive folder.
