How is KIBO Tied to the School's Overall Technology Curriculum?
KIBO helps to lay the foundation for understanding the fundamentals of programming, coding, and robotics engineering. Kindergarten students enter into elementary school with an expanded technology vocabulary and a preliminary grasp of concepts that they'll continue to apply right on through high school!
Elementary school students are simultaneously engaged in our Information and Digital Literacy program. These courses teach them the skills they need to leverage all the resources technology can offer, and to use them safely and responsibly. This increasingly important skill-set provides them with a solid foundation for the advanced research and work they’ll do within our challenging High School curriculum.
Our Computer Science program, which will now include an AP level course, will prepare them for college level work in an academic world that becomes more technological everyday.
