Apple Distinguished School Graphic
  • High Point Elementary School, located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago with students in grades 3–5, incorporates one-to-one iPad, MacBook, 3D printers, green screens, and Apple TV. Access to Apple technology makes it possible for teachers to adapt to students’ individual curricular needs, instructional levels, and interests, and gives students more opportunities for choice in their education. For example, students choose how to create reading response projects, such as with an iMovie video, a Keynote presentation, a book, or a report in Pages. Through use of iTunes U, students have access to resources about a specific learning topic. Flipped instruction allows for more peer-to-peer collaboration time in the classroom. Gallery walks allow students to showcase their learning while also inspiring others. Please read more about our story of innovation through our vision, teaching and learning experiences here.
