Our students learn computer science by building real world products

Our students love to create. They are driven to build solutions to problems facing their communities. Our students are introspective. They challenge themselves to turn their weaknesses into strengths and grow into their best selves. Our students are open-minded and kind towards others, regardless of creed, class, and color. They are thoughtful in their communication, and bring empathy both to the products they design and their relationships with others.
