The Middle School is a 1:1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program. Students are led by a continually trained staff on the latest in Technology Education (TechEd). The middle school follows a technology scope and sequence that stems from the ISTE standards. This scope and sequence was custom-designed by our technology team and our director of instruction and learning. Its purpose is to ensure our students are acquiring all of the most relevant and up-to-date technology skills so that they can be successful both now and in the future. Middle school students demonstrate responsibility by coming to class each day with a fully charged device.
For the upcoming 2018-19 school year, here is an update from the MS team:
Dear Middle School Families,
The Middle School has requested in the past that students have an iPad, a protective cover, and a (recommended) keyboard attachment.
Out of respect for the current economic situation in the Kingdom, the Middle School would now like to assist our parent community by allowing parents to choose any type of Tablet or Laptop computer they prefer.
We are offering our parent community this greater flexibility for several reasons:
A financial relief for the parents as some laptops (Chromebooks) are less expensive than Apple iPads.
Freedom of choice for Middle School families as to what technology tool they would like their student to learn with.
The new campus facilities allow for a better computer hosting experience (charging, space, etc.)
Additional keyboarding and computer skill development.
Q: Can I change my device?
A: Students can bring a new / different device at any time
Q: When will this start?
A: The 2018-19 school year.
If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us as we would be happy to assist you during the coming year.
Thank you for the time and have a fun and safe summer break.
The MS Team
