The goal of Lakeview’s technology program is to empower students to be innovative thinkers and leaders and to harness technology as a problem-solving tool.
Starting in Middle School and continuing through Upper School, Lakeview students may join our robotics teams. These teams are competitive and part of a global program, which challenges students to creatively solve problems based upon unique yearly themes. For team awards, see below.

Digital Design and Programming
In Middle School, Lakeview emphasizes each child’s individual interests and designs courses to allow students to pursue either a digital design or programming focus. These “choose-you-own-adventure” projects reinforce individual agency, all while students contribute to a collaborative goal in the classroom.
