Choosing Your iPadCase Studies
Which iPad is right for you?
- For incoming Freshmen a 32GB iPad Pro, 64GB iPad Air 2, or 64GB iPad Mini 4 will be sufficient to hold all school materials for a school year, including a little extra growing room for personal items like music, videos, and photos.
- Refurbished iPads can also be purchased from Apple of older generations, however, these may not be adequate over the span of a 4 year high school career to keep up with advances in software.
- Students are responsible for providing their own protective case for the iPad.
- Some students have also found it useful to use a bluetooth keyboard in class.
- Students will need to BRING THE IPAD TO ORIENTATION. We will be loading their iPad apps and books for the year at orientation.

iPad AppsWhen you enroll your iPad with our Technology Department, each student receives a unique profile specific to their needs and the requirements for their selected courses. Below is an overview of some of the apps that every student receives.
With Classroom, students and teachers can view their classes, assignments and communicate with their classmates in real time. Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date.
