El Estoque

About us

El Estoque is a national award-winning student publication that has reported on and for Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, Calif., since 1969.

Our print magazine is published once a month and our website is updated daily. Our content — which is entirely generated and produced by a journalism class of around 50 students — ranges from traditional coverage like in-depth investigative stories and breaking news to multimedia features like videos and photo galleries. The goal of all our content is to inform and entertain the student body and local community.

Staff applications for the current academic year are closed. To join next year’s staff, please check back in April. New staff members are selected through a written application process as well as interviews.
