The Elementary Experience

Saints Day

The experience of an elementary student is one in which they evolve from hands-on, experiential learning into the digital era. Exposed to iPads for learning  skills in kindergarten, our teachers believe in a education that utilizes technology, but relies upon the student’s hands-on experiences to learn. By 3rd grade, the students have 1:1 Chromebooks within the classroom, utilizing iPads and desktops in the computer lab in grades K-2nd. Our 4th graders are 1:1 iPads in the classroom, while our 5th graders are 1:1 chromebooks. Each of these modalities prepares the students to be expert users of technology by the time they enter middle school.
