  • Laptop Requirements

    Grade 9-12 students are required to have their own device (laptop) and bring it to school every day. This will allow students to; explore specific topics with more depth, access resources with greater efficiency, further develop critical thinking skills, learn, and apply the behaviours of good digital citizens, and express and share their learning in more creative, modern, and engaging ways. Using technology, we hope to help students create something new that was not possible prior to full technology integration.
