We believe that it is important to prepare our students to use technology as stewards of digital citizenship. Tech devices are tools that help students foster academic, social and personal connections.

1:1 iPad Program
At Mission, all students are expected to bring their own iPad to be used in the classroom. Most textbooks used in the classrooms are electronic and are to be downloaded into the student’s devices. The teachers also have students access other educational apps that will benefit their learning process.
Google Apps for Education (GAFE)
Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a core suite of productivity applications that Google offers to schools and educational institutions for FREE. These communication and collaboration apps include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Sites, and a GAFE account unlocks access to dozens of other collaborative tools supported by Google. All of these applications exist completely online (or in the cloud), meaning that all creations can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection. Once a school decides to embrace Google Apps for Education, they can register their school domain (web address), and administer all teacher and student accounts from an administrative dashboard.

All SGMHS students are given a school email that is theirs to use for life. This will be the primary source of contact between students and teachers outside of school hours. Once the student graduates SGMHS, they will continue to access their email account and will be contacted for alumni events via their SGMHS email.
