Cutting Edge Technology
Our students benefit from state of the art technology in the classroom including a 1:1 iPad initiative, SMART boards in all classrooms, and fully networked buildings. The available technology allows for the instruction of 21st century skills in all classrooms and across all curricular areas. Outside the classroom, there are a wide variety of academic and extra-curricular activities available to all students. This allows students to engage in many areas of interest and develop skills through a wide range of experiences.
