Student Life - Overview
At High School for Media & Communications (HSMC), student's education does not depend solely on academics. A successful life expresses itself in more than the intellectual. HSMC encourages many student activities in the hope of giving opportunities for wider associations among students and faculty. In addition, universities tend to look for young men and women who balance and round-out their personalities by participation in extracurriculars. Active involvement shows more than merely a variety of interests; it is very often a sign or index of the type of person applying to a college or a particular occupation. It generally shows that a person has adjusted well to the school society and that he has given of himself as well as having received.
The HS for Media and Communications offers great opportunities to those who want to explore many different sports. The classes offered include cycling, swimming, lifeguarding, weight training, softball, and dance. The High School for Media and Communications participates in a variety of varsity and junior varsity sports in conjunction with the three high schools on campus: High School for International Business and Finance, High School for Health Careers and Sciences, and High School for Law and Public Services. The mission of the Public Schools Athletic League is to provide opportunities for educating students in physical fitness, character development, and socialization skills through an athletic program that fosters teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship.
