About NSU University School
We are a private, independent school in Davie, Florida, located on the beautiful campus of Nova Southeastern University. We have a media production studio and control room, both equipped with state-of-the-art equipment: a vocal booth, touchscreen audio interface, and 24 new iMacs. We were recently featured on NBC 6’s segment, Brag About Your School.

We have the ability and desire to travel to local and national student competitions, like STN and All American Film Festival. We hope to one day rival the top programs in the country! Our ideal Media Productions candidate is someone who will lead the program into its next stage of development and help us create an award-winning school news station.
We offer excellent benefits, access to NSU’s vast resources, and tuition discounts for our Early Childhood Development daycare, our JK-12 private school, and/or master’s and doctoral programs at NSU.
