The Fourth Estate

About Us

The student press of Laguna Blanca School has adopted the following as its mission:

1) To publish news, information, and opinion articles for and about the student, faculty, and administration activities, interests, and policies.
2) To maintain high ethical standards with regard to fairness, personal and legal rights, responsibilities, and accuracy.
3) To provide a forum for free and responsible expression of student opinion and present well-balanced, locally researched coverage of issues and broader interest.
4) To strive for a high level of competency in the technical aspects of writing, including grammar, spelling, clarity, and precision.
5) To welcome diversity and increase the scope and depth of our coverage in order to heighten mutual understanding and awareness throughout our entire school community.



The Fourth Estate welcomes guest columns and letters to the editor. Letters must be signed and must be no longer than 400 words. Editors reserve the right to edit for length, clarity and/or taste. Anonymous letters will not be published. The Fourth Estate reserves the right to reject advertising. Opinions expressed in this publication reflect the perspectives of the staff whose goal is to inform our readers with reliable information from which to base decisions and opinions. Editorials represent the voice of the staff and are voted on by the entire staff. Columns and commentaries are labeled as such and represent the opinion of the author. The Fourth Estate publishes four issues per year with a senior insert in the last issue.
