Information & Technology Services
At The Hill School, our library and technology staff and services are integrated into one department (Information and Technology Services, or ITS) focused on making sure students have the access to and support for the information and technology resources they need for a great educational experience.
Our technical staff supports Hill's Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program; our high-speed network; technologies like Apple TVs, high definition projectors, and tablets in the classroom; and a lot of behind-the-scenes tools that keep things running smoothly. In the library, we provide students with access to the latest information through college-level online databases, books, and periodicals. We work with faculty members to find effective ways to integrate information and technology resources into classroom activities and we can help with every step of a student's research project, from finding to presenting information.
Our aim is to help Hill students develop the ability to take a discerning, informed, and ethical approach to research and information management, while also supporting the development of critical skills in reading, writing, quantitative analysis, and oral communication.
