The highest we have is Elements as well, and in some cases even Elements 2.0

In our main lab I have used GIMP with good success, although it can be
quirky and the learning curve is high. My 8th graders picked it up pretty
easily, but I am not sure if it would be easily accessible to 6th. In
5th-7th we have been able to do most of what we wanted to do (for
curriculum-related drawings and images) with Paint, and K-4 we use KidPix.

I need to clarify which Adobe tools are in which suite, but I am also
wondering about starting to purchase some of the ³bigger² tools for our
middle school. I guess it depends on the level and type of use. I recall a
session on the new Acrobat Standard at which I saw some great features for
graphic design, and integration with Elements.
