Category:

NEWS FLASH! Postscript got the Gold! The Columbia Scholastic Press Association awarded the 2016-17 Postscript, our student newspaper, a Gold Medalist Critique, earning All-Columbian Honors for special merit in all categories. (All-Columbian denotes a score in the 95th percentile or above.) The Columbia Scholastic Press Association, a department of Columbia University, was established in 1925 to help improve student publications. 

Congratulations to 2016-17 Editors-in-chief Mollie Eisner ’17, Thao Kahn ’17, and Jack Sheehy ’17, and to all editors and writers who contributed. 

“This is such a superb newspaper, the best I have had the pleasure of reading in a while. I am very impressed that this is an extra-curricular endeavor that produces such professional-quality work.” — an excerpt from the judge’s overall comments

More about Postscript: A wholly extra-curricular activity, the newspaper is staffed by highly motivated and dedicated editors and writers who spend hours after school and during weekends to create a newspaper that reflects their sense of news, commentary, features, arts, and sports. As a student-run organization, the content and look of the paper are the responsibility of its editors, and the school fully supports this effort by giving them the freedom to publish openly.
