Technology

The Pine School in the 21st century, must keep pace with advancements in technology, effect changes in the curriculum and the manner in which the curriculum is delivered, and effectively manage information and communication both internally and externally.

To live and work successfully in our global society, Pine School students will require different knowledge, skills, and attitudes than previous generations.

We believe that technology available today for educational use offers unique opportunities to enhance instruction and learning and empower students to be more proactive in the acquisition of knowledge.

The Pine School uses technology to enhance its 21st century curriculum and student learning through our laptop program, smart classroom initiatives, wireless environments and use of state-of-the-art tools to enrich the learning process.
