Our curriculum is enhanced daily by the use of technology in each classroom. Students in Pre-K through Grade 8 use SmartBoards regularly and also receive weekly Computer Education. Each child has access to and learns to use desktop and laptop computers, as well as iPads and ChromeBooks.

The technology curriculum includes coding, keyboarding, digital citizenship, proper use of the internet for communication and research, and gives students the opportunity to learn many software programs, such as Microsoft Office and Google Suite and apply these tools to their school work.

Teachers enhance their daily instruction with programs such as the SeeSaw, Pear Deck, Kami, Google Suite, flipped classroom, webquests, virtual field trips lessons, Zoom/Google Meet visits with authors and experts, and more. To review our Curriculum Standards in more detail, click here.
