Technology

At St. George’s it is our vision that our students graduate with the appropriate technology skills in order to communicate, collaborate and create with confidence.  We wholeheartedly embrace the use of educational technology in our classrooms. Students at St. George’s are provided with various age-appropriate devices and digital tools to enhance our curriculum and support our mission statement by utilizing differentiated instruction to meet each of our students’ individual needs.

Students learn to use the computer to solve problems, to use proper computer vocabulary, to enhance keyboarding skills and to realize the importance of computers in our world. With the ever-rising prevalence and significance of technology in our globally connected world, we hope to instill in our students a foundation for productive, responsible, respectful, safe and ethical computer use.


Facilities

Our classrooms are outfitted with interactive touchscreen boards. All teachers and students also have access to a the technology lab, which is equipped with a fleet of Chromebooks, several iPads, and multiple 3D printers.

All lower school classes have a 1:1 set of iPads as well as additional classroom devices.  The lower school students can bring these devices to various classes and activities. Lower school devices stay on campus at all times.

All middle school students are issued a personal device for both school use and home use. Students in sixth through eighth grades use touch-screen Dell laptops and fifth grade students have touch-screen Dell Chromebooks.  Middle school students have access to digital versions of all required books.  All middle school students have a Google Apps for Education account in order to stay connected with their fellow classmates and teachers, and to keep their materials organized and accessible. These accounts provide access to applications including but not limited to Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and Google Classroom.
