Allan A. Martin is a grade 6 to 8 school in south Mississauga, with the regional International Business and Technology (IBT) program available to all students. The IBT program was developed in 1994 and challenges students to develop the attitudes and skills necessary for success and for a life of continued learning.

As well, technological competency is supported through a planned program that teaches the skills required to access, manage and communicate information in a constantly developing technological age. As in all schools, the commitment to keep current remains a high priority as new technology and applications evolve. Regular staff in-school training sessions and conferences, as well as accessing support from business partners and board resources remains a priority.
