Campus Technology

Our campus is a completely wireless campus! We currently have one 25 station PC computer lab equipped with a Promethean interactive whiteboard that is available for scheduling, and five wireless laptop carts that are assigned one per grade level. Each grade level is also assigned a media cart equipped with a laptop, LCD projector, Promethean ActivSlate, and document camera. Additionally, we have a good supply of digital still cameras and digital video cameras for both students and staff to use. Students have access to a wide array of software titles ranging from Microsoft Office to Lego Robotics software.
