We strive to developing 21st Century competencies by supporting students with the technology and opportunities that will enhance inquiry skills, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Students in grades 6-8 will have access to 1:1 technology providing for more opportunities for project-based learning. We utilize our technology resources to enhance the learning environment. Each classroom is outfitted with a Smart board and various other technology enhancements. Our updated computer lab, mobile Ipad and laptop carts provide exceptional learning tools.
