East Troy is the first in the State to have SmartLabs™.  
The East Troy Community School District began the 2016-17 school year with a certified SmartLab™ in Prairie View Elementary and the East Troy Middle School. A new preK-2nd grade elementary building is currently being constructed. When the building opens for the 2017-18 school year, it will also contain a certified SmartLab™. SmartLabs™ are an engaging program where students explore STEAM through project base learning and applied technology.  It's a fully integrated learning environment where everything from curriculum, activities, hands-on assessments, technology and furniture all work together to support hands-on, minds-on learning. It is a place that ensures critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, and content all toward supporting a personalized learning environment by highly engaging all ages. MORE INFO
