Apple Distinguished Program

The Apple Distinguished Program designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments.

“The twenty-first century is dictating that educators develop new paradigms regarding instruction. Students are utilizing new technologies to learn, to communicate, to develop relationships – school systems must become agile, flexible, and ‘smart’ to reach the modern day learner. Our school system is addressing the needs of the ‘whole, new child.’ Included in this plan is the effective use of technology. We are working to redefine classroom instruction, and empower teachers to develop instructional techniques that are not limited to the traditional classroom, and will most definitely energize and engage the twenty-first century learner.”
