The Carlmont Media Program is an open forum for student expression. The program consistently wins national awards for the overall content, social media, and individual performance of the student journalists. The website, Scot Scoop, has received the top national honor, the Pacemaker Award from the National Scholastic Press Association, three times in the past five years.
Highlander newsmagazine is published several times a year and offers a mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. Although timely, there is less "breaking news" in the print edition and more focus on deeper feature-based reporting. Highlander was established in 2008 as a newspaper and has since evolved into a full-color newsmagazine.
Scot Scoop, the online media source, delivers real-time reporting and is a vital role as the source for current events at the school.
Founded in 2010, Scot Scoop News is a student-run journalism website by Carlmont High School's journalism staff. Staff members and editors use a variety of tools and methods to produce, edit, and publish content.
