Institute of Media Production Arts and Creative Technology at Indio High School!

Indio High School kicks off the 2016-2017 school year with the implementation of a brand new career technical education pathway! The first of its kind in Desert Sands Unified School District, the Institute of Media Production Arts and Creative Technology centers on filmmaking along with screenwriting, web production, audio production, and graphic design. 

Students in grades 9-12 will be able to take A-G and CTE approved courses designed to engage learning and focus students on post-high school goals. All skills learned in IMPACT will assist students in any post-secondary education and/or career field. If we're lucky, it might even!

As the school year progresses, student work and accomplishment  will be posted on this site, which is intended to be an informational tool for students and the community. None of this would be possible without the incredible support of the Indio High School and Desert Sands administrative teams. 

Mission Statement
IMPACT's objective is to prepare students for college and careers through a rigorous and relevant arts, media, and entertainment career technical education curriculum with an emphasis on creativity, collaboration, and character.
