Technology

Teachers are continuously exploring technology and finding new ways to utilize technology in their class.  Google Classrooms, Smart Boards, iPads applications, and PowerPoint presentations are just a few methods used by teachers to create interactive, exciting lessons.

In addition to classroom exposure, students attend a weekly technology class where they receive direct instruction on keyboarding, Google products, PowerPoint, Inspiration, Publisher, Excel, Microsoft Keys, and safe, ethical Internet usage. Students employ these skills in their core classes aiding their learning and improving project production.
