Our Core Curriculum is Based on Connecting Four Areas of Focus 

Computer Science

In today’s world, coding is as important as reading, writing, and arithmetic. The ability to create code or to use code to problem solve is an asset that can be used in multiple career pathways. Coding requires logical, computational thinking while encouraging creativity and teamwork. The skills developed while learning to code empower students to solve complex problems, foster perseverance, and confront the major issues of their lifetime.

Engineering and Design

At Comp Sci High, students learn the Stanford Design Thinking process. Business and industry leaders use Design Thinking to develop the most successful technology products, like smartphones, personal devices, software, video games, and virtual reality. Our students master the collaborative and creative skills colleges and employers want.


At Comp Sci High, our Entrepreneurship courses develop the skills that will make students successful in any career. Our student entrepreneurs are leaders, creative designers, and problem solvers. They are open-minded, flexible, and great decision-makers. Most of all, they’re determined and courageous. Our students create new products, learn how to bring them to market, and discover that their work has tremendous value.

Social & Community Impact

In a world that revolves around computers, we believe technology can be developed to promote positive social impact. Comp Sci High students participate in real-world projects designing and creating new ethical and inclusive products. Their work sparks the start of new businesses, removes barriers to access, and makes the world a better place.
