Educational Technology Overview

Educational Technology at ZIS is grounded in the Mission and Philosophy:

Learn, Care, Challenge, Lead

Students and faculty have access to a technology-rich learning environment at all campuses. Responsible use is a focus as students employ technology and faculty promote the development of digital citizenship across the curriculum.

  • Students in our Early Childhood Center and our Lower Schools participate in the iPads & Learning Initiative.

  • Each student in Grades 1 to 5 has access to his or her own iPad for use in the classroom, authentically integrating technology and research skills into the curriculum to complement the units of inquiry.

  • Students in Grades 6 to 12 participate in a one to one tablet PC program that enables students to develop critical skills while seamlessly integrating information technology into the curriculum.

  • A comprehensive e-learning platform complements classroom instruction providing learning opportunities anytime and anywhere.

Faculty participate in professional development and professional learning communities to continually foster best practice and have access to multiple tools and platforms to support communication, collaboration, creativity and problem solving in classes and activities.

Student Life

Co-curricular activities challenge our students’ personal, social and physical development and encourage a greater passion for learning. Opportunities range from the arts to sports to outreach and service work and beyond.



ZIS has four unique campuses offering a personal experience to each of our students. Whether it is an old villa or one of our modern buildings, ZIS offers an age-appropriate environment for your child’s learning.



The ZIS community extends beyond our students and includes ZIS families, alumni, faculty and staff, corporate partners, neighbors and friends.
