About

The Blaze is the student-run newspaper dedicated to serving Rock Ridge High School and the students, parents, teachers, and community in the greater Ashburn area. The staff of The Blaze produces continuous online coverage and three print magazines during the academic year. The Blaze remains steadfast in training student journalists to uphold journalistic integrity to provide accurate, up-to-date, and diverse coverage of school and community news, features, opinions, etc.

For the 2020-21 digital school year, the staff shifted focus to online production with a digital weekly newsletter. Plans to print issues of the newsmagazines will be reexamined if school opens in person.

Mission Statement

We, The Blaze news staff, are committed to providing the Rock Ridge High School community with accurate, up-to-date information, highlighting diverse events and people, and sparking conversations for underrepresented stories.
