Curriculum In Action:

Standard 2: Career Focus
Theatre students traveled to three Theatre Conferences: Florida Theatre Conference in Lakeland, FL; Florida State Thespian District 3 Festival in Longwood, FL; International Thespian Society Florida State Thespian Festival in Tampa, FL. These conferences presented students with opportunities to audition and workshop with faculty members of universities from across the nation.


Students involved with TV and Theatre interns were able to work closely with teachers and understand the abiltiy to multitask in order to successfully create the task and projects.

  1. Shark TV produced a 4 hour long “Holiday Special” that aired in December over the CCTV system of AHS, featuring original holiday-themed videos from its students.
  2. Shark TV also produced a 6 hour long “End- of-the-Year Special” that will air in June over the CCTV system of AHS, featuring original school-based videos from its students.
  3. Shark TV continued throughout the year to document the daily school curriculums and special activities of Atlantic High School including: the AVID program, Drama, Dance, Band, and Vocal performances, student-driven in-class presentations, as well as various ceremonies for ROTC, Black History Month, Mr. and Miss AHS, etc.


Both the theatre students and the TV Production student are college bound with knowledge and abilities to make them successful in programs. Actors are knowledgeable in techniques, movement, and voice production. Technicians have experience with lighting, sound, costume, makeup & hair design and prop and set constructions. Students are also experienced in Stage and Set Management. This experience will allow an easy transition into college and/or the Arts of Communication field of their preference.

Florida Association of Theatre Educators Conference; International Thespian Society Florida State Thespian District and State Festivals; Florida High School Band Association; Mapping Mondays: VCS training specific for Art Educators; Florida Theatre Conference

Students were "hands on" with applying curriculum learned regarding Technical Theatre, Areas of the stage, Role Responsibilities, etc.
