Tech Integration

We believe that Information Technology should promote active learning, allow teachers to share information efficiently and maintain proficiency, enable administrators to manage the school more effectively, and facilitate timely communications between students, teachers, administrators and parents.

The existing infrastructure includes:

Computing and Communications Infrastructure
  • Network - All instructional spaces, administration office, library and other infrastructure of the school are connected over a 1000 Mbps LAN.
  • Servers - The school's network is powered by a collection of twelve servers.
  • Tablets/Laptops - The school has an installed base of over 800 student and staff tablets and laptops spread across various divisions and departments.
  • Wireless Access - All instructional spaces, administration offices, library and other infrastructure of the school access the technology resources on the servers through 802.11 n access points.
  • Internet - Access to the Internet is available through two high-speed 80 Mbps Fiber links with a 2 Mbps Wireless backup for essential services. The Elementary school and Secondary school are connected by 2 high speed Point to Point 100 Mbps links with 2 different ISP's.
Applications and Systems
  • Student Management System - We use Veracross, a web-based integrated student information and management system for student admissions, student attendance, student reporting, and preparing middle and high school course schedules.
