I am currently enrolled in my senior year at TVF, and will be graduating in June of 2020. I absolutely love this school with all of my heart! If I could stay in HS forever, I would. The teachers are out of this world. The academics, the support and the creativity that is spread amongst the school is outstanding! During your junior and senior year, you have college prep classes and counselors that guide you through the entire process. I am proud to say that I attend this high school and recommend it to anyone that wants to study anything along the lines of film and journalism!

Great curriculum , attentive teachers, and hands on production experience! The advisory system allows parents and students to track progress and communicate with their teachers about any issues/concerns.
The general curriculum of the school is what you would find at most other schools with the addition of a production class. The production class involves learning about how to shoot, hold, and deal with all different camera types. There is also, editing, directing, makeup, set design, camera, sound, and grip and electric. You can go into any of these cohorts in your 11th year for more in depth teaching. Unfortunately, because of the addition of production, language classes such as French or Spanish are only taught in the first year, so if you’re looking for a good experience in learning languages you’ll only find it in your freshmen year. All in all this school has a great experience for those who want to get into film and those who don’t with its ability to give students plenty of practical learning.
