- iPads are used in all grades with most concentration in the Pre-School through 5th Grade classrooms. Students in these classes have many hands-on opportunities to use educational apps to further enhance their learning.
- Chromebooks are used by allMiddle School students for use in their classrooms. These students will utilize G Suite for Education (formerly called Google Apps for Education). This will enable the students and faculty to work more collaboratively on projects and also enable students to access their work in school and at home. Chromebooks will also be shared by 4th-5th grade students.
- The IXL web-based program for Language Arts and Math is being utilized by students in Grades 2-8 both in school and at-home for skill building throughout the year as well as Science and Social Studies in Grades 4 and 5.
- SmartBoards, and Promethean ActivPanels are used in the PreSchool through Grade 8 areas for more interactive lessons.
These award-winning products help teachers bring more collaboration and interactivity into the classroom. Because these products are so easy to use, teachers can quickly incorporate them into their teaching to transform student learning and increase engagement.
