Here are some details of what the Technology Department has been working on during the school year: 
  • We have additional interactive touch Smart Boards that have been installed in classroom in grades K thru 12.  Every classroom has a Document Camera and overhead LCD Projector and most use Smart Board touch interactive systems. Many classes K-12 have also implemented classroom sounds systems to ensure students hear the teacher's instruction no matter where in the room they are working.
  • Lower school faculty use Teacher and classroom iPads in concert with their faculty laptop for daily lessons.  Middle and upper school share an iPad cart, 5 laptop carts and computer labs in lower, middle and upper school.
