Technology 2015
  • At Echo Horizon School, technology is not a subject. It is an environment.

    Technology is embedded throughout our curriculum at Echo Horizon School. We immerse our students in a technology rich environment where they utilize a variety of tools that support their learning. This unique and powerful perspective exemplifies why the work of our students and teachers is featured in Apple's Education Resources, why we have been recognized as both an Apple Distinguished School and a SMART Showcase School, and why our program is visited by educators from around the world.


    Students from Pre-K to 6th grade have access to iPads, laptops, and desktops both in the classroom and in our Technology Center. Pre-K-2nd graders utilize both iPads and laptops in their classrooms.  Students in 3rd and 4th grade enjoy 1:1 access to laptops in the classroom and every 5th and 6th grader at Echo Horizon School is provided a laptop computer to use at school and at home. Whether they are making an iMovie to present research findings, taking scientific measurements with digital probes, sharing information globally with videoconferencing, or reporting on school events with podcasts, our students learn by doing every day.

     

     

New Apple Distinguished School Book

  • Echo Horizon School has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School since 2010 for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence.
    We are excited to share our most recently published multi-touch book featured by Apple in the Education Success Stories portion of the iTunes Store. 
     
     
    We are the only independent school in Los Angeles to hold this distinction for six years in a row, as Apple has selected us for meeting the criteria of Visionary Leadership, Innovative Teaching and Learning, Ongoing Professional Development, Compelling Evidence of Success, and Flexible Learning Environment.  Echo Horizon regularly hosts local and international educators who come to learn about how we use technology to engage and empower student learners.
