iPad 1:1 Program Information & Resources
Brentwood's Upper School is also proud to be a 1:1 iPad school. iPads function as one-stop shops for many of the things students do—a portable language lab for foreign language classes, an enhancement to science classes by being attached to sensors, the graphing calculator in math, and the presentation device in all areas. Students who begin 9th Grade with their own iPads are already using them as central organizers for all of their educational work, with the calendar, word processing, work submission, textbook, and communications with faculty in a single, lightweight, and flexible device.
