TECHNOLOGY

Technology is an integral part of life at MTS and is embedded throughout the curriculum. We focus on developing skills that allow students to use computers as production tools, develop critical-thinking skills, and be 21st century problem solvers. All learning spaces at MTS have access to our wireless network and are equipped with interactive white boards and document cameras. All teachers and students have access to one of three laptop carts, allowing for a one-to-one computing experience as needed.

The school maintains a Computer Center where students attend weekly classes in small groups. These classes allow students to progressively develop the necessary skills to use computers in all subjects, including word processing, graphics programs, and multi-media authoring tools. We also teach coding, beginning in kindergarten. Enrichment courses in grades six through eight allow students to more deeply explore areas of interest including coding, digital art, 3D printing, and stop-motion video.
