Technology

WPA uses the latest technologically advanced teaching tools to enrich the learning experiences of our students and to equip them with the digital literacy skills to succeed in the 21st century

We recognize that in order for our students to be successful in the ever-changing complex digital world, we must be committed to continually improve teaching and learning at WPA. Our classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including digital projectors, Smartboards, and wireless technology, and in our younger grade levels iPad mobile carts. Our teachers participate in ongoing professional development, allowing them to explore the functions of the tools that are available and to learn how to harness the full potential of digital learning in the classroom. Students and parents can access grades 24/7 on any device through FACTS SIS, formerly known as RenWeb.

Early Childhood and Lower School

  • In the early grades students have access to mobile iPad carts and/or Mac Mini centers in each classroom. Teachers utilize online resources to help students learn how to use iPads and computers correctly, as well as the proper use of many apps.

  • Through age-appropriate lessons, students learn about digital citizenship and proper etiquette for working within the online world.
 

Middle School

All students in grades 6-8 receive a 13" MacBook Air to use at school and at home, which is customized with applications and books that are specific to their coursework. This allows their learning environment to reach far past the confines of the classroom and develop the digital literacy skills that they will need to succeed in the 21st century. 
 

For Current Students and Parents

We have compiled some resources for our current students and families to assist with any technology needs.  Please contact the technology department if you have any questions.
