Welcome to the Middle School 1:1 page!
We started 1:1 Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education (GAFE) in 8th Grade Math and Science Classes. They have really been enjoying the hands-on activities and collaboration in class. We look forward to having the whole middle school go 1:1 this year!

Information for incoming 6-8th graders:
Educational research indicates that when 1-1 initiatives are effectively planned and implemented, the following outcomes are realized:
- Students in 1-1 programs outperform non-laptop students on standardized statewide achievement tests;
- Students engage in more higher-order reasoning and critical analysis during school activities, and collaborate more with their teachers;
- Learners participate in more problem-based and project-based learning activities, and develop stronger 21st Century skills; and
- Teachers report higher levels of student engagement.
