Technology

The Williston Northampton School's Technology Department recognizes the increasingly important role that technology plays in the lives of our students, and the lives of everyone in our community. It keeps us connected to one another, helps us to learn, and can fuel our passions. Because success with technology is so vital, we are committed to providing exceptional technical service and guidance to everyone in our community. The Technology Department collaborates with teachers, administrators, and students to enhance everyone's academic, extracurricular, and social experience, and to prepare our students for success in college and beyond.

History of Technology at Williston

Long at the forefront of both academic and administrative computing (we began using computers on campus in 1973), at Williston Northampton we're committed to providing our teachers with the best resources with which to educate our students and to giving our students the tools they need to take full advantage of all we offer as they explore and develop their intellectual life. As a college preparatory school, we recognize the importance of helping our students develop the digital skills they will need in college, in advanced studies, and in life. We teach our students to use technology with purpose, passion, and integrity.
