What is the Highlander Newspaper?
The Highlander Newspaper is a student-run newspaper at the Frederick Gunn School, a private co-educational boarding school in Washington, Connecticut. Established in 1935, it is a forum for students to share campus news, discuss current events, and share opinions with the school community. All students may contribute to The Highlander, but the bulk of the paper is produced by a student editorial staff in a yearlong class for credit. Along with the Highlander is the Highlander News Network, which consists of student-made and edited videos. These videos can be viewed on YouTube and on the official Highlander News Network Instagram, listed at the top and bottom footers of our website.
