KDPS Radio is just one of many hands-on opportunities students have to learn about Communications at Central Campus.

Des Moines Public Schools and Central Campus have a long involvement in teaching students about all aspects of communications industry. In fact, Central Campus was the original home of what is now the Iowa Public Television network.

The Broadcasting & Film program offers students hands-on opportunities in both television and radio. The school is home to its own radio station, KDPS, and students have the chance to work with the school district’s cable television station, DMPS-TV.

Budding photographers will benefit from our Commerical Photography courses, learning and practicing all aspects of photography including the opportunity to exhibit their work.

From print to online, our Graphic Communications program teaches students the skills to present words and images in a variety of mediums.
