South Buffalo Charter School

A Future in Focus!


The goal of the computer lab is to integrate the classroom curriculum into the computer lab while teaching students about the internet and Microsoft programs. While working with the internet students learn internet safety and how to navigate. Each student will have access to all of the Microsoft programs as well as Kidpix and Kidspiration.

The Microsoft programs that we utilize in the lab are:

Microsoft Word

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft Publisher

Microsoft Excel

In K-2, students use basic components of each program. They learn how to use the computers and programs. Each year we build upon the year before. Students learn how to use Kidpix to further their understanding of classroom materials.

In grades 3-8, students work in keyboarding on a daily basis. The goal is to have students be proficient typist by the end of 8th grade.
