The school is equipped with a mobile lab consisting of 10 Chromebook laptops for the students to use.  The students are taught typing and general word processing skills.  The teachers also will use computers in the classroom for a variety of other ways to enhance their learning.  Students are also allowed to bring their own ChromeBooks to school, and the school is currently acquiring more ChromeBooks to supplement the laptops for classroom use.

If you are interested in buying your own ChromeBook, please visit Google’s ChromeBook site and get a model that best suits your child’s needs.  All models are suitable for classroom usage.
