Technology

Incorporating technology in the classroom creates interactive instruction and participation which enhances the overall student experience. Saint Thomas integrates SMART Boards, Google Chromebooks and iPads into our repertoire of teaching tools, providing opportunities for individualized instruction from grades K through 8. We incorporate a 1:1 Google Chromebook program into our junior high curriculum. We recognize the value of incorporating technology into each academic discipline at the junior high level. Our investment in the latest technology is increasing the opportunities for student-driven projects and differentiated learning while emphasizing the importance of digital citizenship.
