Information Technology


Hello, and welcome to North Lake School. Below is a synopsis of our technology program at NLS.

Tech Overview

Technology is an ever-growing aspect of life in the global marketplace, and it continues to be at North Lake School as well. We do our best to implement industry-proven, high-quality hardware to the front and back end of the network.


Currently, the school has a 100x100Mbps dedicated fiber optic internet connection, 1Gbps fiber running to every switch closet and 1Gbps copper to every LAN workstation, 802.11AC 3×3 MIMO WiFi, a high-end SAN for storage, CIPA-compliant web filtering, a Layer 7 UTM firewall, 7 total computer labs (1 STEAM, 2 stationary PC labs, 2 mobile PC carts, 4 Chromebook carts) for a total student-to-computer ratio of 1.6:1, a SMART board in every applicable instructional classroom, and an ever-expanding list of productivity and educational software.


The technology end-goal is to be as adaptive as possible. The industry changes so quickly that we must work to have a solid hardware and software foundation to build from, and then implement initiatives as they become available/relevant.
