The Oracle was the fictional High School newspaper in the Sweet Valley High book series. It was well-run and mostly very informative. Elizabeth Wakefield was the most dedicated staff member and most of her circle of friends worked with her.
Main Staff Members
- Roger Collins: An English Teacher who is the head faculty member of the Oracle
- Penny Ayala: Editor-in-Chief, who saw this as a step to her dream of becoming an editor of an international newspaper, and it was because of that reason that she and Elizabeth were close friends. John nearly broke up their friendship with his antics until he was exposed by Jessica.
- Elizabeth Wakefield had written the "Eyes and Ears" Gossip column, but would also do other stories and would later do a new column called "Personal Profiles".
Other Staff Members
- Olivia Davidson: an art's editor whom Liz is also friends with
- John Pfeifer: A sports editor until he started plagiarizing Liz's work in an attempt to break her and Todd up in his attempt to date her. Jessica used her cunning and manipulative ways to expose him for the deed and got suspended for it. In SVH#90: Don't Go Home with John, Lila, dated him until he nearly raped her. This ended up exposing John even worse and not only he got expelled, but also sent to a mental asylum.
