Our fully wireless (and wired) campus provides students and teachers with a limitless environment to connect and share. There are a number of ways that technology is weaved into the classroom for project-based, hands-on learning and collaboration. Across disciplines, teachers require students to utilize online tools for research, to blog or journal online, and to engage and exchange in debate on web forums. Some classrooms are equipped with SMART board technology, which allows teachers to deliver dynamic lessons on an interactive white board. As a progressive education institution, CSW emphasizes an intensive academic program that challenges our students to be inquisitive, innovative, and invested learners, with a strong emphasis on independence in their pursuit of learning. CSW maintains a bring your own (BYO) laptop policy
for all students and fully integrates the Google Apps for Education system into our academic program.
