Summary: A leader in in technology integration with a 1:1 iPad program and the first New England boarding school to adopt the International Baccalaureate, our small school in rural New Hampshire will give you the tools to understand it. Our academic program is geared toward helping students develop informed perspectives on today's global world, along with the critical thinking, technological, communication, and social skills to solve problems and promote innovation wherever they go. Our teachers create flexible learning environments to meet the students’ wide range of learning styles. Because technology is a significant factor in creating these learning environments our facilities and schedules are intentionally designed to maximize learning opportunities that technology provides. Our class schedule consists of 70-minute blocks. Students typically take six courses that meet 3-4 times per week. These longer blocks maximize the face time our teachers have with students and minimize transitions. We also provide time in the schedule for students to seek extra help, complete coursework, collaborate with their peers, or to just relax through scheduled open blocks and office hours.

Summary: New Hampton School is an Apple Distinguished School for the implementation of its 1:1 iPad Program. The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for schools that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate Apple’s vision of exemplary learning environments. The selection of New Hampton School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights its successes in enhancing and extending teaching and learning with thoughtful and innovative implementations of technology. New Hampton School began its iPad Program as a pilot in 2010 when the School gave iPads to all freshmen and some faculty members. After documented success, all faculty and ninth- and tenth-grade students utilized iPads during the 2011-12 school year. In the fall of 2012, New Hampton became a 1:1 iPad school and immediately recognized the benefits school-wide that the pilot program hinted towards in its early days.
