About Us

The Redwood Bark endeavors to inform the Redwood High School student body and staff of happenings in the school and the community beyond. The Bark is a limited public forum for student expression, as well as a learning instrument for the student journalists of Redwood High School.  The two branches of Bark, Print Media and Evolving Media, work together to produce a monthly publication as well as an online stream of articles and multimedia content.  Since its establishment in 1958, the Bark has been a primary source for school and Marin County news.
