1:1 Laptop Program

All Middle School students receive a school-issued laptop to be used as an academic tool. Technology is used during the school day for research, essay writing, video production, presentations, 3-D printing, and various creative endeavors. While many classes integrate technology to enhance the student experience, not all classes do; it is up to teachers to discern the right tool to reach particular learning goals. Each classroom is also equipped with resources such as interactive whiteboards and Apple TV to allow for seamless integration of technology. In 5th grade, laptops are used in school but do not go home in the evenings. In grades 6–8, however, students take their devices home most evenings, which allows for greater continuity and familiarity with the device.
