Communications

The Communications Arts Department is composed of outstanding teachers who focus on teaching courses within our three strands, Advanced Broadcast Journalism, Animation, and Audio/Video Production. Many of these classes have honors, dual credit, and advanced placement options. The department also offers a variety of electives like The Foundations of Arts and Entertainment OnRamps course, Advanced Placement Art History, and Literary Film Genres. We  strive to teach students the latest technology in the field by using Project Based Learning and give students the opportunity to earn industry based certifications in Adobe Creative Cloud. Students in these programs also participate in Quill & Scroll International Honorary Society for High School Journalists, the United States career and technical student organization SkillsUSA, and various competitions throughout our district and local community.
