Mission Statement

The Glen Echo is committed to providing factual and relevant news to the Glen Rock High School community and the Borough of Glen Rock. All of the articles are written by students.  We are dedicated to maintaining a high standard of journalistic integrity and pioneering new ways of delivering high-quality journalism. We encourage creativity and helping students to mature in their writing. We aim to enhance the school environment and increase camaraderie among the student body through informative and timely news.

The Glen Echo, 2015

The Glen Echo staff has taken many important steps forward this year.  The journalism course has become very popular and many people have benefited from this successful transformation.  The staff looks forward to expanding its reputation and publishing substantive journalism.

The Glen Echo was recently awarded the distinction of ‘Site Excellence’ from School Newspapers Online.  Another award that the newspaper has recently won is the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA).

The GRHS newspaper also has a standing partnership with the Ridgewood-Glen Rock Patch, in which student work is co-published on the town’s newspaper website.

This is Mr. Toncic’s fourth year at The Glen Echo.  

Comments Policy

The voiced opinion of the public is an integral part of journalism. The Glen Echo staff encourages both the students of Glen Rock High School and the public at large to respond to the content published on our web page. We strongly recommend leaving a constructive and tasteful comment on articles in adherence with the cooperative nature of journalism.

All comments made will be reviewed for topicality and decency. Brevity is encouraged.

Comments will be swiftly deleted if:

  • The comment attacks a person or group, named or unnamed, unreasonably
  • The comment is made with the intention to make readers feel uncomfortable on the basis of someone’s race, gender, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any other controversial topic at the discretion of the editors
  • The comment attacks a school employee
  • The comment contains excessive obscenities or sexual explicitness

The Glen Echo Senior Staff holds the discretion to determine the offensive or destructive nature of a comment.
