  About The School  

The Technology Center


The Technology Center's  objective is to provide a quality education for a diverse group of students that incorporates challenging academic and technical experiences with work skills that are required for success in a global society in conjunction with the overall mission to ensure academic success for all students. The Technology Center services students from Bethune Bowman, North, Orangeburg-Wilkinson and Calhoun County High schools.

 We Believe That:

-Students are valued individuals with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.

-Students and staff should demonstrate positive relationships and mutual respect to enhance students' self-esteem.

-Students learn best when they are actively engaged in demonstrating their understanding of essential knowledge and skills through hands-on, real-world applications.

-Students learn through differentiated instruction and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning in meaningful context.

-Students need the support and cooperation of parents, business and industry, and the community.

-Students need to be actively involved in developing character, solving problems, and producing quality work.

-Students in our school can become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners if there is a commitment to continuous improvement.
