21st Century Classrooms

Great education must start somewhere.  Since the first graduating class in 1918, the Maryville City School System has become well-respected for serving as the source of excellence in education for many thousands of students.

The first graduating class included 11 girls and two boys, and since that time, the Maryville City School System has experienced an explosion in growth as many families see the educational opportunities that only Maryville City Schools can provide for their children.

Today, with school enrollment numbers increasing, the school system is facing new challenges in maintaining and continuing to provide top-tier educational equipment and programs for its students.

In the most competitive school systems nationwide, modern classrooms no longer simply use chalkboards, books and other basic elements of what most adults remember from their own school days.  Instead, today’s classroom integrates a range of technology and new teaching innovations, often operating as an interactive multimedia lab that allows teachers to apply instructional methods through the use of new technology.

Tools such as interactive boards and LCD projectors are providing teachers with the opportunity to teach students in new, more experiential ways, in keeping with the high-sensory media environment in which children are growing up now, surrounded by the latest and most compelling in technological innovation.

21st Century Classroom Partnership


Written by Administrator

Maryville City Schools Foundation (MCSF) launched the 21st Century Classroom Partnership in April 2009 with the Maryville City Schools administration, School Board, City of Maryville, parents, and the community with a lead gift from Clayton Homes.  The goal was to raise at least $500,000 toward a $1 million need for interactive technology upgrades to classrooms in all 7 schools.  Interactive technology in the classroom helps students conceptualize subject matter and engage in the learning process more fully. Over the past three years, MCSF has invested almost $250,000 for classroom technology upgrades.  Overall the stakeholders in the partnership have invested nearly $1 million into interactive technology for the students of Maryville City Schools.

There are still unmet needs in technology, especially with the 2012 opening of Coulter Grove Intermediate School.  You can help by making a tax deductible contribution for the 21st Century Classroom Partnership through a secure online payment via this website or mailed to MCSF, 833 Lawrence Avenue, Maryville, TN 37803.
