Educational Technology at Wakefield


Technology is a focus for all Wakefield students beginning with 9th grade Foundations technology courses and expanding to higher-level classes, including JAVA, Engineering and Technical Drawing (CAD). Advanced Topics classes allow student to explore technology in a deeper, more personalized setting.

As part of Arlington Public School’s Personalized Learning initiative, all Wakefield students will be using MacBook Air laptops in all of their classes and for learning at home and elsewhere.

To supplement this program, Wakefield also provides its students and teachers with dedicated labs for Business and Art resource instruction.

Our library’s online databases provide full-text research tools to Wakefield students that rival those available to college libraries.

All of our classrooms come equipped with computer-connected SMARTBoards, allowing teachers to create lessons allowing  students to engage interactively in their instruction.

Each spring, Wakefield hosts a Technology Expo where students present examples of technology-based schoolwork and are judged by members of the local professional community who provide valuable feedback to the student participants.
