1:1 Laptop Program
The 1:1 Laptop Program at the American Community School was launched in 2012 in grades 6 to 12 where students are required to bring a laptop to school for daily use. The use of the laptop has been integrated into the curriculum and facilitates collaboration between peers and teachers. The program also allows greater access to resources that support classroom instruction.
ACS utilizes PowerSchool, one of the most widely used web-based student information system in the United States and around the world. PowerSchool enables our teachers to enter student grades and notes on their performance to share with parents, creating a collaborative environment for parents to work with the school in making decisions that impact the student's progress.
MaiaLearning is an integral part of the HS Counseling program. MaiaLearning is a college and career readiness platform that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals. Its comprehensive college and career planning solutions optimize student success, enhance school counselor productivity, and track results for schools and administrators.
All ACS high school students have individual accounts through MaiaLearning, a web based program for students' recording personal profile information, resume creation and many other features. Surveys are used to explore personality traits and investigate careers that match particular profiles. The emphasis is for students to learn more about themselves and about the numerous post-secondary options to better plan their high school program and ultimately determine colleges and majors for career preparation.
