Northside Independent School District's Communications Arts High School is a magnet school housed on the William Howard Taft High School campus as a "school within a school." We are located just outside Loop 1604 on Highway 471 in Northwest San Antonio.
Our mission is to prepare students for success in college, in the work place, and in life by providing a challenging academic program focusing on the development of exceptional skills in communications.
Any NISD eighth grade student may apply for admission. Each year, approximately 130 freshmen are accepted to enter the four-year program. An admissions committee reviews each application for acceptance.
