When it comes to school journalism programs, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. SNO’s FLEX theme enables programs to build a website that fits who they are, what they need and what today’s readers are looking for.
One of the best things about the SNO team is that they know what’s going on in a journalism classroom day in and day out. They are able to speak the language of me and my students and offer practical suggestions to any questions that come up.
Aaron Manfull, AdviserFHNtoday.com, Francis Howell North High School
I’ve been an adviser in high school journalism for over 15 years, and working with SNO is one of the most seamless and impressive experiences of my career. They simply do great work, they are always available, and they are professionals. As advisers, we often have far too much on our plate and SNO does a great job of making the web experience easy and powerful for our young journalists. They are simply awesome.

I left my previous position to open a new school this year, and in the process of ordering equipment and software, my first decision was easy – I signed up for SNO.
Samantha Berry, AdviserThe Bridge, Bridgeland High School
SNO pushes my students to be great writers. Providing benchmarks for journalism excellence has made my young students more aware of what it means to present news and information in an entertaining, professional, and authentic manner.
Chris Davis, AdviserClark Chronicle, Clark Magnet High School
Easily the best budget money I spend all year. The easiest to use WordPress site creation I’ve found. SNO Reports, site badges, specialized training – all of SNO is an incredible resource for my students.
Sara Stensaas, AdviserEagan Independent, Eagan High School
Our SNO site has given our students a voice in our school community. We are proud to provide our readers with a good looking site, replete with features, opinions pieces, photos and more. The SNO platform makes this easy for advisers and even easier for student journalists and their readership.
Vin Cappiello, AdviserThe Prowl, Powell High School
Our staff had made several attempts at an online publication, but the demands of keeping the press rolling while learning a new platform were too many. Until SNO. Thank you for making advising fun again!
Lin Illingworth, AdviserThe CavChron LINE, Hollis Brookline High School
Support is just amazing here. The response time to your tickets is lightning fast. And the quality of the fixes avoids the silly back and forth that can plague online support. Hosting a complicated website has never been easier.
Eric Thomas, Executive DirectorKansas Scholastic Press Association
Even though we are a little high school with a little budget, we are given the same professional support as a bigger business or major newspaper.
Natalie Ann Rebetsky, AdviserThe Lance, Linganore High School
The SNO online help and training materials are excellent, and in the unlikely event your question is not covered there, you can submit a support ticket and your question or problem will be dealt with promptly, honestly, patiently, efficiently, knowledgeably, and informatively.
Rob Melton, Board MemberNorthwest Scholastic Press
SNO is the best digital journalism support platform because it is lead by journalism educators who understand advisers and a 21st-century journalism media program.
Mitch Eden, AdviserThe Kirkwood Call, Kirkwood High School
We’d been wanting to get online in a big way for years, but doing it properly was such a daunting task, particularly with the ongoing turnover of student talent. SNO made it easy for us to get over the initial hump, and once we were, students were excited about putting stories online. It’s broadened our reach in ways we didn’t even imagine beforehand.
Lain Hughes, AdviserThe Sentry, Jackson Preparatory School
We have a student-managed newspaper website and it wouldn’t be possible without SNO. As an adviser and mentor, I can focus on teaching content and empowering writers and trust my students to keep the website current and fabulous.
Jackie de Laveaga, AdviserThe Burger Gazette, Williamsburg Academy
The team at SNO Sites is always willing and eager to help your news website run as smoothly as possible. The support team is especially quick and efficient in helping those without web experience to host a well-functioning and appealing website for their community.
Glenn Rohrbacker, Editor-in-ChiefThe Charger Bulletin, University of New Haven
Their customer service is outstanding. And the SNO Distinguished Site program is a great tool to motivate my students and make our site better. I could not be happier with the decision to host our site with SNO.
Todd Cammarata, AdviserEagle Eye News, Tyrone High School
SNO has provided rock-solid, turnkey and flexible solutions and support for my students in public and private schools, from San Francisco and East Oakland to Paris, Seoul and Ha Noi, Vietnam. No matter where we are in the world, and whatever time zone that means, we can count on SNO.
From FLOW where my students can access our organizational plans and charts, to our website which is state of the art, we wouldn’t be who we are without SNO. The support is fast, reliable and friendly. The price is perfect for all we get behind the scenes.
Michael Reeves, AdviserThe Lone Star Dispatch, James Bowie High School
SNO’s WordPress provides easy navigation for beginning journalists who need upload basics and flexible enough for seasoned staffers who want to innovate. We love how reliable the site is and how quick we get responses when we have questions for SNO Support. I can’t imagine a better company to work with.
