The Middle School Computer Science Department believes for a student to be successful and competitive, they must learn technological skills that will enable them to research online, keyboard, develop projects, solve problems, and create materials that will enhance and further the educational experience in all academic disciplines. Specific technological and problem solving skills are interwoven into the school's curriculum.
The department also strives to encourage and teach responsible, respectful, and acceptable technological use, especially online. An acceptable use agreement (AUP) is signed by all students and resources are provided to educate students and teachers on the importance of online ethics and copyright issues facing students today. The department, along with the counseling department, prepares and implements an Internet safety program that is a part of Internet Safety Week as well as special sessions for all students throughout the year.
