The goal of education at Alfred M. Barbe High School is to provide students with the tools which will enable them to identify and develop their interests and abilities and to relate these to their responsibilities as citizens in a democratic society. The school strives to encourage each young person's sense of worth by helping all students attain their goals intellectually, physically, aesthetically, emotionally, and morally.

Technology Showcase Classrooms

Teachers whose classrooms are a part of the Technology Showcase have also volunteered for pineapple chart observations. This means that their classrooms are open to observers who would like to see how they are integrating technology to support student learning. This provides the opportunity for Barbe High School faculty and staff to conduct peer-to-peer observations to learn and share technology tools and resources. For more information about pineapple charts, visit this TCEA blog.
