South Mountain High SchoolEver wonder how a newspaper goes from a blank page to print? Or what really happens behind a television camera inside a recording studio? Or who determines what tunes to spin on your favorite radio station?
The answers are waiting at the Center for Multimedia Communications at South Mountain High School. With state-of-the-art equipment and facilities (including two television studios, KJAG radio station, computer labs), in addition to teaching professionals, our programs are regarded as some of the best in the country.
Students who have a real way with words may have the “write stuff” for our multimedia journalism program.
Students interested in music, news, special formatting and being “heard but not seen,” may find their place in the Radio/Broadcast Production program.
Not sure how to channel your communication energy? Our Communications Survey course offers students opportunities to sample a variety of production areas: print journalism, radio, video and desktop publishing. Our program is unique-providing many opportunities for students to integrate their technical and creative skills with other Magnet programs and academic courses.
Our internship program partners with local television broadcasters, cable stations and other media organizations to provide extensive, practical, on-the-job experience.
