About Us

The Campanile is a non-profit, student-run newspaper publication produced by and for the students of Palo Alto High School in Palo Alto, Calif. The Campanile is written and designed by students of Palo Alto High School’s Advanced Journalism class and is an outlet for students to inform and express to residents of Palo Alto and surrounding Bay Area communities.

Located in a suburb south of San Francisco, Calif., Palo Alto is notably known for its location in Silicon Valley and its close ties with neighboring Stanford University. Palo Alto High School is known in the community as Paly and is a part of the Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD).

The Campanile publishes ten print issues throughout the academic school year and is composed of three, eight-paged sections: news & opinion, lifestyle and sports. All articles are archived online in addition to articles found exclusively online.

As the digital component of the hybrid publication, we seek to provide the Palo Alto community with accurate, responsible, thought-provoking and timely journalism.
