Technology, an integral component of the St. Mark’s curriculum, is used to enhance lessons and maximize the efficiency of assignments. Carefully chosen technology is deliberately integrated into the curriculum at all grade levels, across all academic disciplines.
Students have access to laptops, iPads, SMARTBoards, printers, and premium software to facilitate learning. Laptops, ceiling-mounted projectors, document cameras, surround-sound speakers, and microphones provide a robust multimedia experience. Students today are growing up in a digital world with instant access to information. St. Mark’s teaches students age-appropriate skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information purposefully and proficiently. Our goal is to equip students with the technological knowledge and skills to be creative, productive, and collaborative while being responsible digital citizens. We are constantly exploring technology and its applications so that our students are well prepared for their future in the digital age.
