Technology is fundamental to learning in every class. Students use technology daily to engage in authentic learning. All students take Technology for Education in their freshman year, but every student can expect to use digital tools in every class. Whether it is creating their own art, composing their own music, writing and recording a podcast, or crafting digital stories, learning at Pine Creek is relevant and applicable to life after high school. Students can also specialize by taking a variety of computer science courses in Cybersecurity, web design, and programming (games, mobile apps and C++), and earn AP credit or industry certifications.
