The Math & Science
This website was designed to showcase school news, programs and activities, and make it easy for parents, students and teachers to find the information they need about this middle school in Brooklyn, NY. The home page features a slider with school photos and recent news stories.
An Events widget lists upcoming school events and holidays on every page. This widget is automatically updated by the Google Calendar that the school keeps. The calendar itself is also embedded on its own page so that families and staff can keep abreast of future events.
Different school programs have their own blogs and sections of the site. This makes it easy for families to find information about school policies, admissions, grade-wide and PTA activities, and the high school admissions process.
The website automatically updates the school’s Facebook and Twitter accounts every time a new story is published.
The school’s staff is very tech-savvy, so moving the website to a user-friendly content management system like WordPress was an easy decision. After Sally led a training session, they have taken over adding content to the site, and it has become a rich resource for the school community.
