1:1 Laptop Initiative

Business Careers (now NSITE) was the first wireless high school in the greater San Antonio area.  All NSITE students are issued a laptop for use at school and at home.   With this wireless initiative, NSITE High School has been able to integrate technology into the curriculum allowing students and staff to stay abreast of cutting edge technology.  The laptops provide our students the opportunity to take on-line courses which enable them to take the learning environment beyond the classroom and prepare them for college.

Goals of the 1:1 Initiative

  • Improving student academic achievement through appropriate use of technology
  • Increasing the market ability and academic competitiveness of NSITE students by preparing them more effectively for today’s technology-driven workplaces and universities
  • Increasing equity of access to technology and digital resources by NSITE students, thereby reducing the digital divide
  • Improving the quality of student-centered, differentiated instruction at NSITE
  • Utilizing technology to assist NSITE in becoming the premier business and information technology magnet school in the nation
