Our History

High school for media and Communications is one of four schools created from the reorganization of George Washington High School in 1999. Most students come from homes where Spanish is spoken and about a quarter of students are English language learners. During a visit in the spring of 2011, new immigrants taught by a dynamic veteran instructor were conversing and raising their hands to recite dialogues in English. They go on field trips to the American Museum of Natural History and the Jewish Museum to build their vocabulary and speaking confidence.
