The technology in our school is beyond what most Atlantic Canadian schools offer. Technology is integrated into every classroom, through media-based activities, digital textbooks, educational apps and online curriculum. Teachers use the technology to enrich our academics and provide students with up-to-date lessons on how to use technology effectively.
