The Media Academy eXperience is a course of study. A programming option. A way of integrating learning, understanding, communicating and creating. But more than all that, it is a community. Media Academy eXperience–MAX–is an interdisciplinary academy for 11th and 12th graders at San Rafael High School. We combine Language Arts, Social Studies, and Media Production through a two year blended and looped program. Teachers work together to create curriculum that is not only engaging, but focuses student attention on their own creative productions in response to content. So what does that really look like? Well, we learn a lot, we research a lot, we collaborate a lot, and we create media.
