On behalf of the administration, faculty, support staff, and Parents’ Association, I would like to welcome you to the High School for Media and Communications. This school is entering its 15th year and is part of the George Washington Educational Campus, a complex that has a great reputation, a long history, a landmark status, and established traditions.
It is our belief that students must be college and career ready and all members of the school community will work hard to help you achieve. We will nurture and assist you in learning the lessons that will remain with you for the rest of your life. During the next four years, there will be many opportunities to grow intellectually, socially, and personally. To be successful, all students must plan their time wisely and effectively, study diligently, complete assignments, attend classes on a regular and consistent basis, participate in activities sponsored by the school, and attend all mandated tutoring sessions. You must also set goals and strive to reach them. To this end, we offer a rigorous academic program.
As members of the school community we must respect the rights and responsibilities of everyone. School personnel, students, and parents need to communicate and cooperate in order to understand and achieve our goals and objectives. This handbook will familiarize you with varied aspects of our school program. It contains valuable information and will provide the foundation for the achievement of a rewarding educational experience. Good luck and best wishes for a successful and enriching school year. Sincerely, Principal
Juan Villar, Principal
