About The Staff

As architects of their Global Studies concentration, the Cohort 4 Global Scholars chose to create a school newspaper, The Prism, and to mentor the next cohort of Global Scholars when they join the staff next semester.  Borne out of their desire to keep alive stories in the news that often “go away” after a short life in the media cycle,  the students designed a newspaper that would address those stories as well as to provide a forum for a student-written publication of news (school and otherwise), features, Op-Ed pieces, sports and entertainment stories. The name of the newspaper, The Prism, represents their mission as student journalists: to report the story from all angles.

Meet the Editors

The editorial board is a rotating assembly of students, whose job is to write, edit, provide leadership, & direction for the team.

She enjoys indulging in pleasure of creating, observing, and appreciating all forms of artistry, as it reflects her inner longing for expression. Chloe Albucker is thrilled to be able to lead this passionate congregation of adolescents in this newspaper committee and hopes to assist them in unleashing their potential by inspiring us all to utilize the beautiful power of our voices!
