The Westminster Schools last month was named an Apple Distinguished School for innovative use of technology in the classroom.

In fall 2011, Westminster introduced Apple Macbooks in grades six through eight, with expansion to grades three through 12 the following year. Even younger students now use iPads and other devices to conduct research and create and present projects.

In a letter to school President William Clarkson in November, Apple’s Vice President for Education said Westminster’s vision for inspired teaching, the school’s innovative leadership, as well as the creative use of digital tools by faculty qualified Westminster as a Distinguished School. Clarkson gave the credit to the faculty for re-imagining teaching and learning to incorporate new technology.

The Distinguished School designation extends through 2015. Apple Distinguished Schools are K–12 schools that provide 24/7, school-wide, one-to-one access to Apple notebook computers and/or mobile devices to all students, teachers and administrators.
