The power of the written word is extraordinary, and the Nueva community is lucky to have a group of students who firmly believe in its power and the responsibilities that come with it.
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 was named a 2020 Pacemaker Award finalist by the National Scholastic Press Association.
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.
Journal of Literature and Arts
The Literary Magazine Club publishes the Journal of Literature and Arts once a year. The journal primarily focuses on short fiction, poetry, and artwork, and 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.
"The goal of the magazine is to provide students with publication opportunities early on and to give them a way to share their art and writing,” said Lyz Bush-Peel ‘20, editor-in-chief of the 2020 issue.
Quest, a signature Nueva program in the Upper School, is a journey of self-discovery, perseverance, and growth as students explore their own paths to purpose. This year, with all routines thoroughly disrupted, we had an opportunity to innovate how to celebrate Quest.
