Learning in a Connected World

From Kindergarten through Eighth Grade and across the entire academic curriculum, our students access a wide variety of technologies to enhance their learning experiences. From practicing simple keyboarding to mastering advanced Internet searches for research projects, they are comfortable and prepared for a digital world.

With a well-equipped technology lab, wireless campus, and computers and Smart Boards in classrooms, students and teachers have access to the latest technology learning tools.

Kindergarten through Third Grade students use computers to learn keyboarding skills and work on subject specific software. Formal technology classes begin in Fourth Grade and meet one to two times each week with a dedicated technology instructor through Eighth Grade. The curriculum progresses from an introduction of specific technology, software, and networking skills to in-depth applications across all academic courses. Students learn word processing, presentation and video content creation, spreadsheet development, data base skills, computer construction applications, and more.

In Fifth Grade, students are required to purchase a personal computer for use in all classes. Students monitor homework assignments, class updates, and school information via PowerSchool (an online educational resource and interactive community). Seventh and Eighth Grade students are required to compile their work (from technology and other classes) into electronic portfolios that they can leverage throughout high school.
