The Upper School curriculum is designed to leverage technology in ways that help each student develop a range of skills to evaluate and share information in ways that are clear, creative, and effective. Students have opportunities to take a wide range of Computer Science courses, and technology skills are woven into the academic curriculum.
Conversations about mindful, healthy use of technology; media literacy; and digital citizenship continue through our advisory program.
The Upper School Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program is designed to help students develop the digital literacy and computer skills needed for their rapidly changing, complex, global, and technology-rich future. The School's BYOD model enables students to use the device with which they are most comfortable to enhance their learning.
