The Pharcyde – The Benjamin Upper School Newspaper – was founded in 1980 as The Spectator. Upper School students produce The Pharcyde as part of The Benjamin School’s Expository Writing elective course. Printed copies of The Pharcyde are distributed in August, September, November, January, March, and May.

The Pharcyde is a member of the Florida Scholastic Press Association, American Scholastic Press Association, and Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
Started in Fall 2009, Pharblog.com was created by editors of The Pharcyde – The Benjamin Upper School Newspaper. The website was initially conceived as a supplement to The Pharcyde, as readers of print news around the world began to turn away from newspapers and toward online content. This website was designed by and is currently run by Online Editor Zachary Cotronakis.
The Pharblog is intended to link all modes of Benjamin communications together, which includes print journalism, photojournalism, and video production. Our aim is to educate and entertain the school community about the lives of students, teachers, administrators, parents, and alumni.
