For Students, By Students.

Join the News

William Floyd students in the High School can join the News at any point and contribute as much or as little as they like. No prior reporting experience is necessary. With limited exceptions, joining the News does not require any requirements, but rather the completion of an application. This application is available here. We are committed to working with all members to ensure that our requirements are manageable, and we are happy to accommodate individual circumstances as necessary. Our editors and members are always happy to talk about their positions, and you can direct any questions about joining the staff to our Editor-in-chief, Mathew Reis, by emailing

Time Commitments
Time commitments depend entirely on the interest and availability of each staffer, and every staffer’s path at the News is unique. If it is your first time writing or reporting, you will receive detailed instructions and guidance from your editors before you begin working. You can also opt to be paired with an experienced member on as many stories as you would like. Additionally, the Editor-In-Chief offers weekly training to all members.
