Technology in the Classroom
A well-rounded technology curriculum must address the unique complexities of growing up digital.
Throughout their time at Westside, students will be challenged to develop critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creative skills. Although referred to as "digital natives", comfort does not imply an understanding of the impact that innovation has on our environment, community interactions, digital identities, or self-esteem.
Our Technology Specialist works with faculty to develop a relevant curriculum, rooted in healthy technology use -- meaningful beyond the walls of the classroom.

Westside School requires each student to protect their iPad with a case. We recommend one of the following:
All students (and a parent or guardian) must sign Westside School's Acceptable Use Policy.
