Public or Private School? Tuition?
We are a public school, so there is no tuition.
We do not use iPads at school. We do use technology as a tool when it is the best method for the instruction or assessment, but this is not every day and certainly not all day. For example, we use chrome books to give students access to writing programs or research for science fair. We also have a computer class that gives students opportunities to learn computer programming and other skills.
We will continue to collect registration packets until all classes are full, so tell your friends!
