Crestview School of Communications


The goal of the Crestview School of Communications is to develop inquiring, articulate, and globally-linked young people who contribute to their school and local community. Students are provided opportunities to receive and provide all forms of communication in order to achieve their goals.

Students get hands-on experience in the world of broadcasting in the school’s state-of-the-art digital television studio, CVTV. Students are in charge of all areas of production in the TV studio, from anchor to engineer to roving reporter. They gain real-world experience by operating the cameras, writing the scripts, and handling all transitions.

But the TV studio isn’t the only way students learn to communicate. Through print, online communications and video conferencing, Crestview students learn the many ways to convey messages.
