The article represents an analysis of the current state of media education in Moscow schools from the top 25 rating of 2020 by RAEX agency. Based on the hypothesis of the acquisition of advantages by graduates included in pre-profile education, the author classifies existing media educational practices by types of media products produced, the level of integration into the educational process and the structures of school editorial offices. The study was carried out on the basis of an analysis of school websites and media products that are published in the public domain. The author provides conclusions on five different types of school media education existing nowadays: print/TV/Internet practices, journalism and public relations clubs. The conclusions substantiate the theses about the unsystematic nature of modern media education in Moscow schools, the lack of methodological developments in this area and the relevance of the creation of the project «Media class in Moscow school».
