Our educational philosophy is that technology supports learning and is to be used when it aides the educational process. Our classrooms are internet enabled and have state of the art technology. Each classroom has a set of iPads and/or laptops for every student. Our internet usage is monitored and limited as needed to ensure appropriate usage.
