Glenwood High School uses Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office as a platform because most of the world uses this Office Suite as standard software. Applications include MsWord, MsExcel, MsAccess and MsPowerpoint. Skills learnt in these programs prepare the boys for most computer work that they will encounter in the future.
Computer Applications Technology develops the advanced skills of boys in the field of computer literacy teaching them as an end user. Theoretical knowledge about computer hardware and software is also tested.
Information Technology includes most of the CAT theory syllabus but the practical component contains instruction in the Java language. This is a testing subject as the amount of attention and time required needs a dedicated learner.
Both CAT and IT prepare the boys very well for the demands of the IT world and makes the boys very employable with one of these subjects on their matric certificate.
Glenwood High School boasts two computer rooms which are regularly upgraded to standards required by an ever changing technology.
