We believe in the power of technology to enhance education and build virtual bridges that connect our entire community. Our technology program prepares students to address the technical challenges of an ever-changing world, while helping to inform parents about every aspect of their child’s education. As technology continues to evolve, we will evolve with it, providing our students with critical skills that contribute to a leading-edge education.
Students in kindergarten through sixth grade have access to iPads in the classroom. Our teachers use SmartBoards to enhance learning, and our elementary Fab Lab allows students to explore computer coding, circuitry, and much more. The weekly Fab Lab lessons dovetail with the classroom curriculum.
Computer use is integrated with classroom lessons and activities, enabling students to develop the skills they need for college and the workplace. Our technology curriculum also includes important lessons on acceptable use, computer ethics, and the impact of technology on society.
