Journalism students produce our monthly award-winning student newspaper, The Family Times, under the guidance of the English department faculty. The course offers students an opportunity to further their competency in literature, grammar, and composition within the context of journalistic reporting. The curriculum also includes photography, computer graphics and layout, and the development of deadline-driven work habits. The journalism room is always a busy and exciting place where students acquire desktop publishing skills and learn how to edit photographs digitally. Journalism students receive a full English credit for the year-long course, and the 11th graders take the New York State Regents exam at the end of the term.
Yearbook students are involved in all aspects of the design and production of the Family School yearbook, including writing, photography, and computer graphics and design. In addition, they are responsible for the advertising, marketing, and sales of the book throughout the year.
