The SBMS Teen Press is an online media publication representing teens and families in the Santa Barbara area and the local region, covering newsworthy events and individuals, and reviewing films, concerts and performances in Santa Barbara and beyond.
In 2015 filmmakers TC Johnstone and Ryan Scheer documented some of the work of TEEN PRESS Team 26 in order to make "TEEN PRESS: The Movie", the first part of an effort to spread the idea of our special type of student journalism to other schools across the country. Please check the movie website to find ways to bring TEEN PRESS to your area.
