Well, for one thing, it's the coolest high school newspaper in all the land. Watch our video and find out more.
Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

The logic of parents — it’s tough to fathom. Of course, the mind of a teenager and the mind of an adult are two different creatures entirely, and those minds are bound to clash, causing uproar at the very least. Examples of perplexing parental behavior are varied and often unpredictable. Here is a list of some of the things we don’t get about our parents.
• They have to be on time to everything. Everything, not just life or death situations where seconds matter.
• Our music should be played only at a certain volume. That’s the level we can’t hear it.
• Their social lives have to be planned far in advance, no spur of the moment engagements. But with cellphones, making plans is merely a speed-dial button away.
• They always eat a healthy breakfast and want us to do the same. With school starting at 7 in the morning, how do we have time for that?
• They always make their beds. Why, so they can just unmake them when they go to bed that night? And so the empty house is not offended by rumpled sheets?
• They don’t text. Texting is the easiest form of communication; it’s far less work than making a phone call, and getting a response is nearly always instant.
• Somehow, it seems like they never sleep. Teenagers need every chance they can get to sleep.
• Their best argument is “Because I said so!” Great one, Mom. You should be a lawyer.
• The house has to be clean before a friend comes over. Um, our friends don’t care if our rooms are clean; they only care if we have food.
• They complain about our generation. Fair enough. They’re the ones who raised us.
