Computer Labs

Multiple computer labs are available for student, faculty and staff usage on campus. 

The Harry R. Lewis Study Center

The Harry Lewis Study Center is the primary location for students to use computers and to access available research tools and resources. It houses approximately 20 computers, one scanner, one color and one black-and-white printer, and one copy machine. The Study Center contains current issues of periodical subscriptions and a portion of the reference collection and is designed for individual or collaborative use on school-related assignments and projects. The senior class coordinates a drop-in tutoring service, in which students provide assistance with academic work.

  • Adobe Creative Suite (Acrobat Pro, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Premiere Pro)

  • Final Cut Express
  • iLife Suite (iDVD, iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes)

The Media:Scape Computer Lab

At Roxbury Latin, we believe that our classrooms represent the best examples of teaching and learning - and that our physical spaces should be designed to fully support technology and foster a collaborative learning environment. Our Computer Lab, completely designed this past summer to incorporate media:scape tables, 20 laptops, and a complete digital interactive projection system, serves as a model of how Roxbury Latin plans to transform our classrooms into next-generation learning spaces, spaces that meet the demand for students to be critical thinkers and researchers, have great communication skills and collaborate.

The Computer Lab is used for a wide variety of courses, ranging from Class VI Trivium and AP Computer Science to language classes, history research projects, Geometry classes, and more. It's open when classes aren't in session for general student use. With 20 laptops, the room is used for a wide variety of reasons, from individual work to team film review sessions.
