Student Publications

In a school that fosters and prizes individual voices, it is no surprise that Nightingale students have found many avenues for expression.

The Atom

A student-founded e-zine, The Atom is Nightingale's first publication dedicated to science. In the words of its founding editors, The Atom strives "to be the building block for scientific ideas, technological advancement, and a source of intellectual entertainment for all to enjoy." 

Out of Uniform

The recipient of three gold crown awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, Out of Uniform features literature and art from the Middle School. Students review hundreds of submissions from their peers—from concrete poetry and prose to sculpture and photography—and vote by committee on which to feature in their yearly publication.


Philomel is one of the most acclaimed high school literary journals in the country. First published in 1928, Philomel serves as a sampling and survey of all the art and writing of the Upper School; it has won nine gold and five silver crown awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.

Right Mind

Founded by two sophomores several years ago, Right Mind is a monthly digital arts newsletter that includes features on artists within the Nightingale community, as well as write-ups of exciting exhibits on view throughout the city, restaurant reviews, and more.

The Spectator

Nightingale's monthly student newspaper, The Spectator features articles, opinion columns, profiles, and reviews (of art, music, books, theater, etc.) written and edited by Upper School girls. In addition to covering news within the schoolhouse, our student journalists often address a wide range of issues that extend well beyond the blue doors.

Time Regained

Time Regained publishes essays and photography focused on national and international current events. The journal, which has received three gold medals from Columbia Scholastic Press, provides a forum for an open expression of ideas, with provocative articles that will spark discourse and debate in the Nightingale community. Each issue presents a diversity of voices, covering everything from the Violence Against Women Act to affirmative action, from outsourcing labor to fashion for female politicians.
