Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. Our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11).
