The Urban School wrestles with many computers, but we are able to maintain a relatively lean staff (relative at least compared to similar independent schools) in part due to the common laptop in the hands of all students and teachers.This results in a community of support which is less possible in a multi-platform school.

That said, Urban is a multi-platform school. Most Admin and Staff have Dell PCs and all servers are Windows. We continue to purchase Apple laptops for teachers and students for a host of perceived advantages (I promise not to go here now, call me if you are interested in an earful), but we can switch at any time if need be.
