Mission StatementTo ensure that all resources (print and technology) and services are in place to prepare Astros for post-secondary options of choice in a global society.Welcome to Astro Learning Commons!We invite you to come in during school hours (with a hall pass) to work on assignments, research topics of interest or sit back and read a book or magazine. *Please sign in upon arrival.
Students who come after school must work on academic assignments or read a book to avoid disrupting the scholarly work taking place.The original media center floor plan has been altered to include more of a "learning laboratory" feel. Astro Learning Commons boasts lounge seating areas, mission-style furnishings, three 43" flat screen TVs for small group/virtual classes, 45 ChromeBook laptops, 60 iPads, and 20 charging stations (each will accommodate 3 electronic devices simultaneously).There are approximately 2,200 one-to-one* eBooks available for district-wide access by all staff and students (via the Atlanta Public Schools online public access catalog [OPAC]).
