The Spectator, monikered the “The Pulse of the Student Body,” is a forum for student expression.
The paper was founded in 1915 and is the official newspaper of Stuyvesant High School. It is a bi-weekly publication that is run completely by Stuyvesant students. It is independent of any other organization, including the Student Union and the school administration. It receives no funding and is uncensored. All printing is paid for by subscriptions and advertisements. It is accessible to all, and it is free.
The Spectator, most importantly, is an open forum for the Stuyvesant High School community. We report on issues that affect our school and aim to do so with the best of our ability, while maintaining the highest levels of journalistic integrity and excellence.
And we're its Opinions sectiont! It is our responsibility and privilege to provide a forum for Stuyvesant students, alumni, and teachers to express their thoughts and opinions on school, politics, world issues, and whatever else might be bothering them. We welcome letters to the Editor and any proposals that readers of the Spectator might have. Simply message the page or contact one of the two editors to get in touch. Any and all input is encouraged (including critique)!
We welcome and encourage Letters to the Editor, which can be sent to [email protected] or be put in our mailbox in the mail room on the second floor.
