Goochland Elementary School participates in the Leader In Me Program which empowers our teachers to develop the leadership capacity in each student. In addition, GES was chosen in 2013 to become the 1:1 pilot school in Goochland County. Students in grades 3-5 take home iPads as part of this program.
For 2015-17, Goochland Elementary, alongside Byrd and Randolph Elementary Schools and Goochland Middle School, were named an Apple Distinguished Program by Apple for its implementation of 1:1 technology to support deeper learning.
