Freestyle Academy wins Apple recognition

 

Freestyle Academy, the specialized arts and technology school for Mountain View and Los Altos high school students, has been designated an "Apple Distinguished School" for the 2009-10 school year, one of only 54 across the country and seven in California.

The technology company recognized Freestyle for its "educational excellence and leadership," and its use of current technologies to create a "21st century learning environment."

"In reviewing the great work that is underway ... I was especially impressed by how the students work with multimedia technology to find outlets for their creative expression," wrote John Couch, vice president of education for Apple, in a letter to Mountain View-Los Altos Superintendent Barry Groves.

In winning the recognition, Freestyle will be featured on a Web site dedicated to distinguished schools, receive Apple discounts and gain "use of Apple headquarters."
