Focus on Technology
ACCS is focused on integrating technology into school work in order to make students’ learning experiences more relevant and enjoyable and better prepare them for the digital world in which they live and will someday be working.
ACCS has SmartBoards™ in every classroom and teachers make active use of them, engaging students in multi-dimensional learning experiences. Each student also has an iPad that is used in conjunction with the SmartBoards™ to help students prepare for the digital world while providing cutting-edge techniques for learning traditional concepts. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 use Chromebooks in the classrooms.
ACCS’s emphasis on technology is greatly enhanced by the Internet Essentials™ Program offered through Comcast and provided by the Gureghian Charitable Foundation. This program bridges the digital-divide by allowing all families with a student at ACCS to have computers in their homes with free broadband access. There is no cost to the families for participating in the program and it provides students with the access they need to fully participate in today’s wired world, whether it’s for a homework assignment or learning on their own.
