Computer Science

Reid School students from the Primary level on through the Preparatory Levels spend alternating quarters in Computer Lab 1 where they are taught keyboarding, computer usage, reading, and spelling skills (KRS) and in Computer Lab 2 where they learn to use the computer to augment/enhance their classroom studies.

The KRS computer program reinforces the students’ reading, spelling, visual memory, and language usage skills and develops fluency in reading.  KRS uses a phonetic approach to reading, with the computer being an essential component of the instructional process. It ensures students’ competency in reading, writing, and communicating and their adaptation to new technologies.  Because of the effectiveness of the computer program, it has been validated by the U.S. Department of Education.  All students receive instruction in KRS in Computer Lab 1.

Advanced computer skills are taught in Lab 2.  Students from the Primary Level and higher learn common business applications as well as applications used to publish to the Internet.  Students in Lab 2 learn how to use a computer’s file system as well as how to navigate the World Wide Web safely and effectively.  It is crucial at Reid School that every student becomes comfortable using the three most common software applications used in the work place: word processing, spreadsheets, and slide show or presentation software.  Students learn to access information and communicate with the outside world digitally.  Technical and digital literacy is important at Reid School.  The Computer Lab 2 teacher collaborates with the Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and the music teachers so projects in Lab 2 will supplement what students are learning in other classes.  Students learn the value of computer usage.  Reid School is capable of communicating with other schools nationally via Internet Video Conferencing.
