Dear Parents,

I hope that the long weekend was an opportunity to reconnect and to be ready to start March. IB Mock exams for the seniors are coming up (March 9-13) and our Semester 2 student-led conferences are also around the corner (March 26). And we will have more sports and invitational tournaments, the Fine Art Festival and our next High School Principal is coming over for a transition visit-stay tuned.

Finally, we are now working on the 2020-2021 HS schedule. Therefore, we encourage anyone who has not returned their options form for 2020-2021 to do so ASAP.

"Bring Your Own Laptop Grades 7-12"

Minimum Specs

  • Windows 10
  • MacOS 10.14 Mojave or newer
  • 6 hour minimum battery life
  • Intel Core i5 Processor (6th Gen) or better
  • 4GB of RAM / Suggested 8GB of RAM


  • Case or backpack with protective compartment 

To ensure the longevity and safety of your learning device, please have an appropriate place for your child to store their learning device when not in use or during transportation. 

  • Headphones with microphone
    To properly utilize the full potential of our 1:1 BYOD program occasionally students will need to listen to differentiated instructions, videos, audio, etc as part of their lessons. The headphones are not for recreational use and will strictly be used for academic learning within the classroom. We encourage parents not to send high-end/high-fidelity headphones to school with their children. Our students are growing in responsibility and individual accountability, however, items do become damaged or lost.

Headphones are seen as a personal use device so to ensure our students health and hygiene, please send your child with his or her own headphones.

Examples of quality headphones for school use are BuddyPhone’s fokusApple’s EarPods with 3.5 mm Headphone Plug, or Logitech’s H151 Stereo Headset.

Thank you,
Fred Bordaguibel
High School Principal
