The Information Services department provides students with the necessary computer application skills for them to be successful in their study and work in the future. Students have the opportunity to learn both about modern computer technologies, as well as how to utilize this technology to create original works.
During their studies at Saint Paul American School, students will master Microsoft Office applications; photo, audio and video editing applications; and program using web development and database languages. These courses will supply students with the necessary technological skills to hit the ground running in any undergraduate program in IT.
Students may take any of the following courses: Information Technology, Digital Art, or Web Development.
Information Technology focuses on basic word processing, skills including all Microsoft Professional Office Suite programs: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, Access and Publisher.
Digital Art expands on foundation skills, exposing students to new applications, including Google’s 3-d modeling, Sketch-up, video editing and advanced features of adobe Photoshop.
Web Development covers a variety of web programming languages, starting with html, adding the relational databases with mySQL and finishing out with PHP. Students leave with the ability to create complex data driven web applications.
Starting Spring 2013, Web Development students will join forces with Student Newsletter to create an entirely student-led portal, which will feature the Student News content in an exciting new web-friendly format.
