We are a 1-to-1 laptop school. Each middle and high school student (grades 6 – 12) has access to a laptop computer connected to our school network and the vast resources of the Internet. At the elementary school, students in preschool through grade 5 are engaged in a project based curriculum supported by technology in both the classroom and a faculty staffed computer lab environment.
