    The Gen Z of Politics

    Cover Photo Credit: www.orlandosentinel.com By Denise Uy On August 28th, a handful of Nease students were able to take their first few steps in American politics—as those who were eligible to vote were able to directly participate in American democracy for the first time in this year’s primary season.

Along with the gubernatorial election, Florida prepares to routinely elect representatives for its twenty-seven congressional districts and one available Senate seat for the federal government’s midterm elections.

    Sharks Took Over Halftime

    By Brady Lorch During halftime at the Nease vs. Ponte Vedra game on the 24th of August at Nease High School, members of the Nease band and color guard were disappointed when they couldn’t perform their full show at this important rivalry game.

Many students and parents were excited to see their friends or children perform at…

    Cover Photo Credit: Lily McKenna By: Lily McKenna (Social Media Manager) and Halie Childress (Layout Editor)   For the 2018-2019 school year, Nease has a few exchange students from around the world.

In addition, we have some tips on how to better welcome an exchange student to our school.   Joris Louvier, a French exchange student who is currently attending Nease for his junior year, decided to share some thoughts about his experience…
