St. John’s is committed to the use of technology to enhance curricular content and build our students’ awareness of the larger world as they develop skills for the 21st century. Access to iPads begins in pre-k and is integrated into the curriculum giving students more opportunities for collaboration, efficiency in completing tasks, and increased independence in their learning.
Our project-based approach guides students to learn about subjects by exploring open-ended questions and solving challenges through creativity and collaboration. It requires that students have fundamental skills in reading, writing, and math, combined with skills like teamwork, problem solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesizing, and use of technology.
Students build understanding by making connections. We integrate our curriculum so students can grasp the big picture. By identifying areas where subjects like social studies, math, science, reading, writing, art, music, and even physical education cross paths, students develop a meaningful understanding of the complex associations and influences within each topic.
