Developing excellent communicators is one of our primary educational goals at VCS. Since we recognize the key role that technology plays in communication today, we strive to equip our students with the most up-to-date equipment and training available. Over the past several years we have aggressively pursued upgrading the technology used by both students and staff.
With the continual development of our elementary campus, we maintain our commitment to provide a technology-rich environment. Instead of a single computer lab shared among all classes, each class has a mini lab of Internet ready devices; this currently allows for 1:1 student-to-computer ratios. In addition to 1:1 (grades 1-5) student iPads, all classrooms also include high-speed wireless Internet, teacher tablets, a projector, Apple TV, teacher iPads, printing capabilities, and more.
VCES teachers receive continual professional development in effective technology instruction and learning. And the computer science program equips our elementary students with critical 21st Century learning skills.
