Leading Edge Technology Campaign

It is our mission to provide a world class education that prepares our students to be successful in the 21st century world. In order to do so, we believe we must provide a technology-rich environment that expands access to innovative digital technologies and learning opportunities while empowering teachers with the skills necessary to utilize technology to deliver curriculum content.
In the 2014 Clarity Survey, our teachers indicated a desire to move from entry-level technology integration, focused on content delivery and tasks that involve procedural understanding, toward use of technology as a tool for deepening conceptual understanding and promoting engagement for all of our students.
Technology is a part of almost every occupation and higher education environment today. It is the language our students speak. We need to equip our students with the technological acumen necessary to succeed. In order to do so, our school and classrooms need to be as engaging, responsive and dynamic as the world around us.
