The Lighthouse is the official student newspaper of Lyndhurst High School in Lyndhurst, NJ. The publication has a rich history that dates back to 1929. It is founded on the principles of accurate, balanced and objective reporting of topics selected by and reported on by LHS students.

The Lighthouse is produced by approximately 60 students across three sections of the journalism elective class taught by Ms. Tanya Pastor.

In previous years, a print copy of the newspaper is published monthly between November and June. Electronic copies are available on issuu.com/lhslighthouse. The print publication is released on the second Friday of each month. It is distributed to students during homeroom and is also available on racks located outside of the gym and Student Services. Those who would like The Lighthouse mailed to their homes can subscribe by filling out the subscription form located here.

The Lighthouse is a free forum that accepts letters to the editors. Letters can be submitted to Ms. Pastor in Room 234. However, they must be signed with the author’s first and last name in order to be considered for publication.

Opinion articles, columns, reviews, personal narratives, podcasts and senior tributes represent the opinions of individual students on The Lighthouse staff. They do not represent the views of The Lighthouse organization or Lyndhurst High School. Editorials are generally representative of the views of The Lighthouse organization but are not a representation of any official views of Lyndhurst High School.
