Lorene Rogers Middle School 5 th and 6 th grade campus
For the first time in human history, we have exotic immersive technologies available to us.

It is our goal to provide a rigorous curriculum that will engage our students and continue to develop them into a 21 st Century Learner. Two 6 th grade teachers classrooms were chosen as pilot classrooms because of their willingness as educators to think beyond the traditional classroom setting and to embed technology into the inner workings of their daily classroom routine. Pilot classrooms afford school personnel the ability to safely monitor student activity with a select group of students.
