School Media Center

IHM Media

The School Media Center is the hub of the school and a place of learning, discovering, and reading. During the students’ weekly visits, we develop students who are lifelong readers and effective users of informational technology. This is accomplished by teaching critical thinking, developing research skills and ensuring access to resources. The School Media Center’s curriculum supports and enriches core subjects taught throughout all grade levels.
