While NPS is committed to preparing students for a future
in our dynamic, information-based society, the school carefully considers the implications of technology use on the young brain.

At National Presbyterian School, technology is used as a learning tool to enrich the core curriculum in all grades.
In Kindergarten and First Grade, iPads are used within the classroom for students to engage in math and reading practice in small centers. Students in Second through Sixth Grade attend classes with the Education Technology Specialist to learn fundamental technology skills, which in turn are integrated into classroom activities throughout the day. 

NPS thus chooses to enhance curriculum with technology in measured steps, allowing best practices in child development to dictate use, rather than current trends.

Students learn proper research skills and abide by the acceptable use and safety policies when using computer equipment and the internet. Emphasis is placed on helping students become safe, ethical, and educated consumers of electronic media both within the school’s walls and beyond. Specific subject-related software and relevant internet websites reinforce concepts in language arts, math, science, social studies, Spanish, music, art, and drama. Assistive technology is also utilized to support varying learning styles within the classroom. 
NPS students excel at:
  • Navigating the Microsoft Office suite and Google apps
  • Mastering proper keyboarding techniques
  • Practicing safe and responsible computer and internet use
  • Applying technology skills in the general curriculum
