What is KnightVision?

KnightVision is a collaboration of mass media through Farmington Senior High School. This began in 2012 when Black Knight Television (TV Production I-VI Classes) and KnightLife Newspaper (Convergence Journalism I-IV classes) both became fully digital with their own sites. In the past two years, both sites have went through several changes that have led to media sites that are hard to match at the high school level across the state.

Students in any level of Television Production are constantly working on new videos and multimedia to give you a way to experience Farmington through videos online.

Students in any level of Convergence Journalism are also working daily to write stories that follow the newest information and news locally, nationally and globally. From sports, travel, entertainment and more, everyone is sure to find a story that gives them an interesting read. Even better, being online now means that you can do more than just read the newspaper! Now you can watch and listen to videos or audio that give additional information on the story.

Both classes continue to evolve along with the technology that both use. The main goal is to give the students a great opportunity to transition from school to the workplace while giving our viewers the most enjoyable experience possible. If parents or students have more questions about the program, please visit one of the tabs at the top of the page or view our Program Information Guide.

Thanks for viewing,

Aaron Lee Murray (KnightVision Instructor/Manager)
