Echo Horizon School Named 2012/13 Apple Distinguished School

The Culver City school has once again been named for its implementation of cutting-edge Apple technology to nurture literacy, critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration.

For the third year in a row, Culver City’s Echo Horizon School has been named as an Apple Distinguished School, along with 43 other schools.

The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for schools that integrate Apple technology in education and meet criteria for the five best practices: visionary leadership; innovative learning and teaching; ongoing professional learning; compelling evidence of success and a flexible learning environment. 

“We are truly honored to be recognized with this distinction for a third year,” Head of School Paula Dashiell said in an official statement.  “The work that our Director of Technology Elaine Wrenn and our entire faculty has done, using technology to facilitate a dynamic personalized learning experience, will prepare students for success in the 21st century.”

“Technology is woven throughout the environment at Echo Horizon School to support innovative approaches to teaching and learning”, said Wrenn.  “Primary students develop literacy and numeracy skills by authoring interactive stories using iPads, while upper grade students also use MacBooks to create videos, music, animation and presentations that communicate their learning.”
