Our New Multimedia Lab
After considerable reflection, we have recently come to a final decision about our new multimedia lane equipment. This lab will complement the high powered P.C. lab where our fine school newspaper and yearbook is currently designed. It ins high-end Adobe software.
The new lab will host 26 Apple iMac computers. Such classes as Design Fundamentals (which all 9th graders will be taking), Graphic Design, and Broadcasting. But of course all students will have access to the lab when classes are not scheduled for its use. We are thrilled to be building a lab with the following hardware and software configuration:
2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
1920 x 1080 resolution
1TB hard drive
Final Cut Pro X
Adobe CS6 suite
Microsoft Office Suite
We are hoping that this high powered lab will play a role in developing an even more robust multimedia curriculum in the not too distant future.
