Classroom Technology

All generally scheduled classrooms follow the Hi-Tech classroom standard and feature digital technology. These classrooms are controlled by a touch panel on the teaching station, which gives the user full control over all audiovisual features in the classroom.

We maintain two types of hi-tech classrooms – basic and full. Smaller classrooms, since they have more limited space, typically follow the basic design, and the larger ones follow the full.

Through the use of the AMX control system, classrooms are monitored for usage and automatically powered off each night to conserve power and equipment life.
