Student Clubs

A place for students to explore their interests and contribute to their communities.
For students, clubs are a way of finding their identity and expressing their interests, as well as fostering leadership. For faculty, it's a way of mentoring students and sharing interests outside the classroom. See the current list of clubs and mission statements below.

  • The Agora


    Mission Statement
    At LWHS, diversity of all kinds is relentlessly encouraged and fostered to promote an accepting and many-faceted community. However, diversity of education often times comes at the expense of other equally important disciplines of learning. In LWHS' case, the expense falls upon the painfully underrepresented humanities, and more specifically, the dying art of rhetoric.

    Here at the Agora, our purpose is to engage in meaningful, challenging and eventfully fruitful discussion on a wide rage of topics and prompts, spanning throughout academia. These prompts will be chosen by the members, who will create arguments and debate them until the majority of the group declares one side of the argument to be stronger than the other.
