Recognized (Again!) as an Apple Distinguished School
Marymount is thrilled to announce that we have once again been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2019-2022 for our unique implementation of technology across the curriculum! Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use technology to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. An Apple Distinguished School since 2015, Marymount is the only independent all-girls school in Manhattan to receive this distinction.
Marymount is committed to an innovative infusion of technology in every learning environment. Marymount students are designers, tinkerers, and makers as they seek to uncover creative solutions to real-world problems. Students develop iOS Apps using Swift; film, edit, and produce a weekly weather forecast using iMovie and iPhone; and participate in a virtual exchange program with students around the globe via FaceTime in world language classes. The School’s 1:1+ iPad and MacBook Air program is further supported through collaborative work areas and digital fabrication spaces. Alexandra S. '21 explains: “Apple allows me to unleash my creativity by sketching 3D prototypes or powering and coding the Arduino for my laser harp. Simply stated, Apple makes learning fun!”
We are delighted to be recognized by a company like Apple for our continued success in transforming education through innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
