The Roar

Our Mission

The Roar | The Roar is Santa Clara High School’s student newspaper. We work to bring SCHS news to students, showcase their accomplishments, and explore issues relevant to our readers. Our goal is to establish the paper as a reliable and comprehensive news source, and we strive to uphold journalistic ethics and professional behavior.

Campus | Campus is a platform for news about our school and our student body. As a section, Campus strives to publish stories that students want to read and information that many do not have and to report on school events in detail.

Distance Learning | The Distance Learning section is a new addition during the 2020-2021 school year to keep the student body updated on news specific to learning from home. The section features information from the district and SCHS regarding protocols as well as student and staff voices regarding their experience in the virtual classroom. 

Focus | Focus provides the student body with an in-depth look at pressing issues directly tied to our campus. News, trends, and events with a major impact on students are explored through an in-depth spread in each issue.

Opinion | Opinion provides a platform for students to voice their thoughts on issues on-and off-campus. The section works hard to maintain the paper’s journalistic integrity by publishing well-written, well-argued, and diverse viewpoints.

A&E | The Arts and Entertainment (A&E) section strives to echo the unique tastes and ambitions of our diverse student body. A&E features strong reporting on events, clubs, and trends pertinent to the arts, as well as reviews that are relevant to readers.

Spotlight | Spotlight uses dynamic photos and colors to help visually bring a story into focus. This section works with trendy and light-hearted features, using art as a supporting tool.

Sports | The Sports section covers Santa Clara High School’s sports teams, issues affecting athletes, and little-known sports news on campus. The section seeks to provide information about student athletics not available elsewhere.
