C104, during the advanced broadcast journalism class periods

Our mission is to explore the art of journalism while providing a voice for our community, and keeping everyone up-to-date with reliable, unbiased news. It is an open forum for student, staff and community voices. To contact us by regular mail, send content to Communications Arts H.S. Broadcast Journalism, 11600 Culebra Rd., San Antonio, TX 78253.

Walking through the halls of Communications Arts before school starts is an entertaining spectacle. Convivial colleagues huddle around laptops, electronic glows warming their faces, while their classmates gather nearby deep in study, preparing for upcoming exams or presentations.
During class time, the school may look unconventional to an observer. Crews of ambitious, camera-wielding students coalesce in the quiet hallways, busy filming for the weekly video broadcast, distilling the culture of the school into comedy skits or news packages. Lunch time is heavily scheduled with club meetings, tutoring sessions, open labs and socializing in the outdoor classroom. And some of the school’s favorite events, such as Turkey Fest and Earth Day, take place during memorable lunch periods when clubs offer food booths and competitive fun.
Above all it’s a safe environment: sports equipment, sweaters and even electronic gadgets can be forgotten on school benches one day and found untouched in the same spot the next morning. “Everyone knows everyone” is the trite but true way we describe the communal atmosphere that envelops our campus.
