This fall, WHS will debut Optic, a new magazine designed to complement Hi’s Eye’s reporting with in-depth pieces and honest expression. Optic will be released quarterly and is an exciting opportunity for students to explore inspired, cutting-edge journalism that ventures beyond the scope of a weekly newspaper.

Since the creation of Hi’s Eye 85 years ago, WHS students have been dedicated to providing this community with independent, reliable reporting. The number of journalism students at WHS doubled for the 2019-2020 school year, making the inception of a magazine possible. 

Optic marks the beginning of a new chapter for WHS journalism, exploring an original perspective while honoring the commitment to professionalism and truth that has earned Hi’s Eye much acclaim over the years.

Combining comprehensive reporting with bold vision, Optic aims to both inform and inspire the WHS community with candid and creative insights on the world and our role in it. To keep up with Optic, follow @theopticmag on Instagram and keep an eye out for subscription forms in the fall.
