TECHNOLOGY AT ISN

Our virtual community.

ISN has developed short and long-range Technology Plans for the school in order to prepare our students for the digital future.  We believe in the power of technology to enhance education and build virtual bridges that connect our entire community. Our technology program prepares students to address the technical challenges of an ever-changing world, while helping to inform parents about their child’s education. 

Technology is an important part of instruction at our school, being fully integrated into the curriculum and used as a natural component of all classes. Our computer science program is offered to students in 1st through 12th grade.

"Our IT program represents our commitment to create a connected, knowledge sharing community that lives beyond the boundaries of the physical school space."

Supporting teaching & learning.

Through our computer lab, classroom computers, and digital boards, students gain access to technology resources in both the lower and upper grades. Computer use is integrated with classroom lessons and activities, enabling students to develop the skills they need for college and the workplace. Our technology curriculum also includes important lessons on acceptable use, computer ethics, and the impact of technology on society. Through ongoing training for students, faculty, and staff, our school aims to constantly improve our digital potential.

Connecting our community.

Providing home-based and remote access – our School Portal System gives students and parents quick and easy Internet-based access to schedules, grades, and lesson plans. We regularly update our website and social media platforms with photos, latest news, and calendar listings, so that every member of The ISN community can feel connected and involved wherever they may be.

Enhancing school operations.

Our school benefits from technology initiatives that increase communication among departments and staff while reducing administrative redundancies. As a result of these initiatives, ISN is better organized, more efficient, and able to focus more of its resources on providing students with a superb scholastic experience.
