About The Griffin Gazette: 

The Griffin Gazette is the award-winning, student-run newspaper produced by Los Alamitos High School’s journalism class. Founded in 1969, the Griffin Chronicle was discontinued for two years and revived in 2022 as the Griffin Gazette. The 2023-2024 staff is comprised of one editor-in-chief, Bella Kim; two assistant editors, Sydney Forsyte and Katie Arnoult; 13 staff writers, and Los Al’s journalism adviser, Mrs. Franzen. 


Mission Statement:

Our mission is to report frequently updated news affecting our school, students, and the Los Alamitos community. We value accurate, ethical, and trustworthy reporting to achieve unrestricted freedom of expression. The Griffin Gazette strives to provide unbiased journalism that gives all perspectives an opportunity to be included and brings attention to underrepresented subjects. We will report the news transparently, covering campus events and promoting diversity at Los Alamitos High School. Articles also offer student opinions and insight on topics relevant to the Los Al community. 



For confidentiality purposes, we cannot allow sources to read articles before they are published. However, readers can trust that our writers will represent sources’ views as accurately as possible and never publish anything off the record. The Griffin Gazette will not disclose the identities of any sources who wish to remain anonymous. All articles will be thoroughly researched and published with editor approval. 



This is a student-run newspaper, meaning the protection of all Los Alamitos High School students and staff will be Griffin Gazette’s first priority. When posting a comment, be mindful towards the journalists. Remain civil and factually correct when making your argument for or against the article. Profanity, hate speech, speech that incites violence, and defamation will not be tolerated. Any comments promoting or advertising goods or services will not be permitted. Instead, please refer to our ad sheet. All comments are subject to approval by Griffin Gazette staff. To directly contact the Griffin Gazette, email [email protected]



Corrections regarding accuracy will be rectified as soon as possible. Readers can email writers through our staff profiles, fill out our feedback form, or reach out through our Instagram account.
