Technology

In the Upper School, students have more responsibility and freedom with their computers. We continue the focus on helping students become producers of innovation rather than merely consumers by encouraging exploration and project work across the curriculum. We introduce students to current and emerging technologies and encourage them to develop fluency with an ever-changing list of devices, programs, and literacies. In other words, they learn how to learn.

The Upper School adopted a 1-to-1 tablet program in 2005 that provides students with ubiquitous access to powerful computing technology for teaching and learning. Students assume responsibility for caring and maintaining their laptops and data in preparation for computer ownership as adults. With 1-to-1 access for students, instructors integrate technology into all subject areas with a focus always on the learning and not on the tool itself.
