Huron Middle School
The seventh-grade Science and Geography curriculums both use technology, and each student is able to work on an iPad in the classroom to access all online resources. The students are also able to access www.thinkcentral.com and www.hmhco.com on any device that is connected to the internet elsewhere. They can go to the Huron School District webpage and then click on the curriculum sites; this will lead them to the appropriate websites.
