Lower School for Girls


Building fluencies with technology

SCH Academy uses technology across all divisions to foster critical thinking and problem solving, to build competence, to connect people and communities, to solve problems by tapping into our students’ creativity, and to personalize learning, all combined with ongoing conversations about growing up digital and the implications for being a digital citizen.
Each Lower School girl has access to an iPad to enhance the learning experience.  

Technology in Practice

A few examples of their work in Lower School for Girls:
  • In our youngest grades, students use QR Codes and augmented reality apps to create and share virtual safaris, hero encyclopedias, and puppet shows.
  • Students begin programming and coding as early as Kindergarten and become proficient in MIT’s Scratch software in 4th grade.
  • Public service announcements are written by students and created with technology tools such as green screens and iMovie.
  • Digital storytelling
  • Reading podcasts to ensure fluency
  • 3D printing
