Lourdes High School is committed to providing students with technologically rich and academically engaging learning environments. LHS operates under a structure whereby students engage in formative and summative assessments through a combination of lecture, discussion, and guided personalized learning in and outside the classroom through frequent connections with and access to teachers and the use of a personalized learning device.
Our teachers use the personal learning devices to engage, challenge, and extend learning. For example, teachers may use it for online discussions, evaluating student understanding through formative assessments, or for authentic, real-world applications. Students can also use personal learning devices in open mods for studying or homework completion.
CAD Engineering Lab
In addition, our engineering labs specialize in computer-aided design (CAD), engineering, coding, and robotics software.
Lourdes High School uses Google Classroom and Google Apps for Education (GAFE) where teachers share course information with students and students are asked to submit assignments digitally. Further, web 2.0 tools are utilized for various collaborative projects and presentations.
A Creativity Lab, featuring interactive STEAM classroom extensions and individual project challenges, will serve as a space where students can demonstrate synthesized understanding, solve real-world problems, and develop inquiry-based, creative thinking skills.
The World Language Department offers students at Lourdes a learning experience beyond the classroom. The language lab is a separate space where students are able to practice their language skills in a variety of ways. The environment includes carrels with individual computers with headphones and microphones so students are able to practice their audio, oral, and writing skills through the use of technology. The language lab class schedule also provides smaller class size for this experience which allows for more individual attention to each student.
PC Stations & Laptop Lab
General purpose PC stations are available to fulfill other student needs. We also have a mobile laptop lab which teachers can reserve as needed.
