Media Literacy at HIES
In the Middle School, students are taught the basics of computer operation and Media Production. The Media Literacy department offers courses in broadcast, print and online journalism, yearbook and video production.
After the completion of a yearlong collaboratively taught course offering the basics of media literacy, Upper School students pursue coursework in one of four tracks: Yearbook, Journalism, Broadcast Journalism or Video Production.
Opportunities to work on the HIES weekly news broadcast, publish articles in the print or online versions of The Crimson and Gold, or work on HIES award-winning yearbook staff, help prepare our students for the future.
