Technology

Computer programming/literacy, and STEM Innovation/Design are integrated into the elementary curriculum. For the elementary schools, teacher training has been ongoing since 2015 in the Next Generation Science Standards and STEAM.

This includes using class management/instruction/productivity apps, modeling/simulation programs and probeware for data collection and analysis. Makerspaces have emerged, allowing students to experiment and create as they problem-solve. All students participate in a Tech and Business/Computers course in grades 6, 7, & 8. AP Computer Science A and CS Principles are currently offered at the high school level. LHS Students can take a wide variety of STEM-related electives in the Science, Math, Technology/ Design/Engineering, Art, Music, and Business areas and have access to wide variety of Makerspace/CNC equipment.
