St. John the Baptist Catholic School in downtown Milwaukie, Oregon is pleased to announce that it has been named an Apple Distinguished School for 2013-2015. SJB joins less than 140 schools that Apple is recognizing nationwide as exemplary learning environments and centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence. The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for schools that have demonstrated Apple's highest vision of a successful 21st century learning environment. The selection of St. John the Baptist Catholic School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our successes in enhancing and extending teaching and learning with thoughtful and innovative implementations of technology.

Schools nominated by Apple for designation as an Apple Distinguished School must demonstrate Apple's highest vision of a successful 21st century learning environment, a strong relationship with Apple, and a willingness to do outreach activities. The specific manifestations of these qualities include:

• Visionary leadership 
• Infrastructure that supports an Apple learning environment
• Engaging teaching and learning methods that capitalize on the qualities of today's students who are mobile, collaborative, and creative
• One-to-one access to Apple portable computers and/or mobile devices for all students, teachers, and administrators
• Ongoing professional development
• Systems to routinely collect quantitative evidence highlighting the success and sustainability of their academic programs.

Thank you to all the faculty, staff, parents, and students of St. John the Baptist. It is because of the tremendous talent we have on staff, the quality and character of our students and parents that St. John the Baptist was able to receive this distinction.

Ted Havens, Principal
