Computer Science

Kent Place School strives to strengthen the authentic uses of technology in all facets of the schools’ daily operation and affirm a sense of community both within and beyond the institution through efficient, ethical and creative uses of technological tools. Our initiatives reinforce the school’s mission and focus on enriching the learning environment of our students, faculty and staff by supporting the integration of technology in curriculum, keeping abreast of today’s technology and planning for tomorrow’s challenges.

Experiences at Kent Place prepare students to become tech savvy individuals that employ 21st-century skills in creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making; digital citizenship; and technology operations and concepts. These skills identified by ISTE (International Society of Technology Education) are integrated into the course of study to enhance all students’ educational experience.
