In an ever-changing and increasingly sophisticated technological age, students must be computer literate and knowledgeable about new technologies that are appropriate for elementary school. The computer science curriculum is designed to integrate technology as a learning tool into the everyday experiences of children. Students learn to keyboard, code, word process, develop spreadsheets, and maintain databases. Basic programming begins in the upper grades.
The impact of technology on today’s world can be seen during a tour of the School’s campus. Two state-of-the-art computer facilities are used by students, teachers, and classes. One lab is positioned in the library to facilitate research opportunities integrating print, non-print, and digital information. A dedicated room with a green screen is available for use by classes.
Other technologies, such as iMovie and digital photography, are embedded in the classes and integrated across the curricular areas. Students develop multimedia presentations and work with graphics for various projects throughout the school year.
