St. E named Apple Distinguished School

St. Elizabeth High School was designated as an Apple Distinguished School for 2015–2017 for its implementation of the 1:1 iPad Program. The program fosters a learning environment that is student-centered, technology infused, and curriculum focused.

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

“St. Elizabeth High School is proud to have been selected as an Apple Distinguished School. This recognition affirms the goals that St. Elizabeth set out to achieve when we started this journey in 2011 to utilize technology to enhance St. Elizabeth’s already proud academic tradition. Each of our students in their own uniqueness has found a way to optimize how we as a school have redefined daily practices,” said Principal Shirley W. Bounds.

The selection of St. Elizabeth High School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.

On a daily basis, iPad brings liveliness to St. Elizabeth classrooms, inspiration to the faculty, and creativity to our students. We are able to deepen the learning experiences for all our students and to provide new learning opportunities. The greatest accomplishment to come from this endeavor has been the increased student engagement as demonstrated by student achievement in academics, collaboration, and leadership.

St. Elizabeth students have been at the center of the initiative since its inception. St. Elizabeth has developed its profile in education through its intentional balance of technology and instruction, and expects continued excellence as our students and faculty continue as ambassadors of leadership and innovation.

St. Elizabeth High School is a close-knit Catholic, co-educational school that follows the Benedictine tradition and offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum.
