Technology

"At SRCS we strive to educate our students with the most up-to-date technology and teaching strategies, for as John Dewey once said, 'If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.'  We want every SRCS student to be equipped with 21st century technology skills and discernment necessary to navigate the web and to use computers and mobile devices ethically and responsibly.

Classroom Technology

Every first through eighth grade classroom is equipped with an Intelligent Classroom (IC) system, consisting of a networked PC, iPad, ceiling or wall mounted projector and speakers, DVD player, large projection screen or interactive board, document camera, and printer.   Our kindergarten classrooms each have a set of iPads used for center times and iPad charging lockers.  Each preschool through second grade classroom has an IC system and a touch-sensitive interactive whiteboard.  The preschool classes have iPad centers  for curriculum-related activities. First grade and second grade classrooms have a set of Chromebooks and charging cart for use at center times.  We have upgraded our three mobile computer carts to include two sets of thirty-two Chromebooks and a set of thirty iPads for student use in the classroom. 


The media center is equipped with several PC's, printers, IC system, eight  touchscreen Chromebooks, and two iPads.  Students can take Accelerated Reader tests, conduct Internet research, and access our Follett Destiny web-based card catalog.

“Were the Jetsons looking for just the right private school for their children, they would likely choose Spanish River Christian School. Make no mistake — while its technology may be out-of-this-world, SRCS’s mission remains grounded in spirituality.”
