It is a SECURE online community that ONLY Attitude House students and staff can access. </li></ul><ul><li>It is an opportunity for students to think together, share together, and learn together in a controlled environment. We will be utilizing this in all of our classes as a way to enrich classroom dialogue. </li></ul><ul><li>If you do not have INTERNET access at home, your student will be the first students allowed to use the computers in our house during team study. We also understand that a computer or internet access may not happen due to equipment failure.
