About Us


Our purpose as a journalistic institution is to provide fair, unbiased news coverage to the masses that attend St. Cloud High School. Reporting in a timely, professional manner is the gold standard for this Independent Student Newspaper.
The Cloud, recognizes the fact that students and school officials cannot attend every event at all times. Therefore, the staff provides intelligently written accounts of issues and events happening on campus, presented in a professional manner to keep everyone informed.

Though this paper/site is created through a classroom setting, outside writers are encouraged to express and share their ideas and creativity through our media. St. Cloud High School’s paper/site, in particular, aims to document memories of the attendees and school affiliates. This helps bring awareness in the community as well.
The opinions expressed in this student-produced high school newspaper does not reflect those of the St. Cloud High School, its student body faculty or administration as a whole.
