For grades 5th-12th, we ask all families to send a Chromebook to school with their students. Our dedicated teachers are enhancing lessons with technology to deepen understanding, develop critical thinking, and provide opportunities for students to showcase their work. We're committed to teaching not just technological usage but also vital 21st-century skills like effective research and digital literacy.
Enhanced Learning: Technology is being used to support deeper understanding, critical thinking, and showcasing student work.
21st-Century Skills: Focus on teaching effective research methods, digital literacy, and responsible technology use.
Chromebook Usage: Chromebooks, with their balance of features and simplicity, are the chosen devices for classroom use. Personal PCs or Macs are not supported in grades 5-12.
Device Specifications and Accessibility:
Find a device with 4Gb or 8Gb of RAM. Hard drives can be 16Gb or 32Gb. 16 is fine. They have unlimited Google Cloud storage. We also have an insurance partner to get coverage for accidental damage. The Smart Tech insurance
is a good deal! We also have a longer buying guide here for you.
We appreciate your support as we continuously assess and improve this program, ensuring our students are well-prepared for future challenges.
