  • Implementation of web filters and Google Suite allow for privacy, security, and safety.
  • Through the state-of-the-art science STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art+design, and mathematics) lab, students are encouraged in digital skills and innovation.
  • Parent/Guardian- and student-focused web presence provides contact information, school documents, daily assignments, campus news, and timely student progress reporting.
  • A group of student volunteers train with our network manager and help maintain the technology infrastructure, known as the Cyber Patrol.

Future plans include the expansion of streaming media, and a broadcasting studio.
