The Nueva Current
Formed in 2017, The Nueva Current newspaper is produced by students in the upper school journalism elective. Printed three times a semester, The Current covers topics and other issues of relevance to the upper school student body, with stories ranging from news and features to opinions and art and culture reviews. The newspaper is led by a student editor-in-chief and an editorial leadership team, and students work on all aspects of the newspaper, including story development, writing and reporting, layout and graphic design, and photography. The Current is distributed on both campuses and is a two-time National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) Pacemaker Award Finalist (2020, 2022). The newspaper received the Pacemaker Award in 2022 and has received an All-American distinction in the critique.
The Tidal yearbook is a PreK–12 publication produced by students in the upper school yearbook elective. More than just a treasured keepsake for students and alumni, Tidal also serves as a historical record and print “time capsule” for each school year. Members of the Tidal yearbook staff are responsible for documenting the history of the year through writing and photography to create a printed memory book that reflects the events, lives and spirit of the people of the given school year. The yearbook is distributed annually in June to all students.
The Literary Magazine Club publishes a culminating showcase piece, LitMag, once a year. This magazine highlights creative arts, and primarily focuses on short fiction, poetry, and artwork. All upper school students are welcome to submit work from many genres. Students who like writing, editing, and/or design work to create the magazine from scratch every year, with an emphasis on curation and a cohesive publication.
In the spring of 2021, upper school students launched Romanesco: a Nueva scholarly journal that publishes at least once a year. This journal aims to share students' work in the humanities, showcasing the incredible range of students' projects. Students who submitted their work went through an anonymous process for selection and reviewing; the selected authors then further revised and developed their work. Students led the way through all editorial stages, commenting, copyediting each other's work, and designing our ethereal cover. Believe it or not, the longest piece in this journal was already significantly edited down.
