Pine Crest School educators embrace technology as an important part of their resource-rich collection of teaching tools. A team of educational technologists work with Lower, Middle, and Upper School teachers how to best integrate technology into core lessons.
Computer science is introduced in Pre-Kindergarten and offered throughout Lower and Middle School with increasing levels of complexity. Upper School students may choose to expand their coding knowledge through courses, competitive robotics teams, or clubs.

Computers and iPads access the library catalogs and the online databases, as well as age- and grade-appropriate educational software. Each Pine Crest students in grades three, four, and five has access to a Chromebook.
