Santa Monica High School Yearbook - The Nautilus

  • Nautilus Staff
    Samohi's yearbook - The Nautilus - is put together each year by a hardworking and dedicated staff of students. Working with English teacher Dana Danesi as their advisor, the staff creates a book that provides an artistic and beautiful insight and lasting memory into life as a student at Santa Monica High School.

    Serving on the yearbook staff is a valuable learning experience in the field of media, since it involves interviewing, photography, editing, layout, writing, and meeting deadlines.

    All students, from Freshmen to Seniors, are encouraged to join the Nautilus team, which consists of a staff of about 30-40 students. Yearbook meets daily during 5th Period.
