The latest edition of the MSMS student newspaper, the Vision is now online. This is the first edition of the paper under its current staff and new journalism advisor, Debbie Montgomery. This is also the first version of the Vision that was not helmed by legendary MSMS educator, Jack Carter.

For the next (almost) 3 decades, The Vision has shifted between print and online publications and seen a colorful staff of countless high school journalists.
As a two-year high school, the halls of MSMS and the staff of The Vision sees students come in as “junies” and graduate as successful seniors rapidly. More information about the current staff can be found on the Staff page of The Vision.
