The Media Centers are one part of the total Media/Technology program at St. Luke School. The media program provides for a wide range of reading, writing, research, production and literature experiences. The two Media Centers located on our campus contain fiction and non-fiction books of varying reading levels, reference books, periodicals, computer look-up stations and over 7950 print volumes and eBooks. The Media Centers are staffed by a full-time Media Specialist and a Media Assistant. The Centers are fully automated, and students are encouraged to become independent users of the Media Centers by familiarizing themselves with the location of available books and materials.
All St. Luke School classrooms have a SMART Board interactive whiteboard, and three computers – one teacher station and two student stations. There are two computer labs for whole group instruction and individual use. Other technology items available to our teachers and students include iPad and iPad mini devices, digital cameras and camcorders, scanners and Renaissance Neo2 laptops. The school is networked, with Internet access available to all computer labs and classroom work stations. Wireless internet access is also available in all buildings on our campus, which makes it possible for us to make available a “mobile” computer lab of 18 Netbooks for student and teacher use. In addition to all of these resources, we also have a fully-equipped state of the art Broadcast room. Morning announcements – delivered by students in our Broadcast elective – are streamed campus-wide each morning.
