Thomas Starr King Middle School has purchased 35 MacBooks and 40 iMacs from Mac to School, provider of refurbished Apple devices.
"Thomas Starr King is one of the highest performing middle schools in the greater Los Angeles area. To maintain the bar we have set so high, it is imperative our students have access to the highest quality technology available,” comments Mark Naulls, principal at Thomas Starr King.
While the middle school could have paid more than $85,000 to buy new technology directly from Apple, Mac to School’s refurbished technology only cost them $33,000.
In addition to providing school districts with an option for purchasing refurbished computers, Mac to School also offers to purchase Apple products from districts that are looking to upgrade or make room in their budget for new computers.
