All of the classrooms at Poly are currently outfitted with projectors for faculty to use multimedia in their classes. The majority of classrooms are set up with interactive whiteboards as well, allowing teachers to incorporate media into their lessons and activities, as well as allowing the faculty to save their notes for student use. Other classroom technologies include, but are not limited to document cameras, networked resources and computer-integrated scientific instruments for Upper School subjects such as physics and biology.
Listening, speaking, and conversation are essential to learning world languages. The Ralph J. Hererros Language Lab provides students access to language databases, online videos and recordings, and instructional material created by their teachers. Through the use of the teacher station, teachers can monitor and control each student computer, ensuring that students receive timely feedback as they listen and work on world language assignments.

A Math lab is outfitted with 24 Dell PCs and is used for classroom work in our Upper School Math courses. A Language Lab is outfitted with 24 Dell PCs and is used for language instruction and assessment by our Language Lab. The remaining two labs are common use labs, and are dedicated to both classroom and student use. One lab is outfitted with 12 Dell PCs and the other is outfitted with 18 iMac Desktops. These labs are frequently updated to provide students with current technology; all are set up with our full suite of available software so that students can work regardless of their class.
Both Poly Prep campuses are set up for wireless network access in all buildings and classrooms. Protected wireless networks allow students to access network resources while using Poly Prep computers. An open guest network allows students to connect their own personal devices for limited access to the Internet and email.
