Jeremy and Zach met in their freshman dorm at Stanford where they started and ran The Stanford Flipside, the satirical newspaper on campus. They both majored in computer science and participated in the section leader program for 3 years, helping teach and run the intro courses. They started CodeHS their senior year so they could give everyone around the world the same opportunities as Stanford computer science students.
Our Mission & Values
The mission of CodeHS is to empower all students to meaningfully impact the future.
We believe that in the 21st century, coding is a foundational skill, just like reading and writing.
That’s why we say: Read, Write, Code.
We do this by providing great curriculum, tools, and resources to teachers, students, and schools to implement high quality computer science programs. We believe that everyone should get the chance to learn coding, and that it’s a skill that provides limitless creative opportunity to students.
We want to help make computer science education fun and accessible, and believe you need both great tools as well as a great community to make this happen. We do this through our support for teachers, students and schools, with the help our dedicated team and amazing tutors.
Encourage Teaching and Learning
CodeHS is about providing excellent teaching and learning opportunities in computer science for students all over the world. We value creating fun, accessible and creative learning experiences for teachers, for students, and for team members at CodeHS. We believe that education--and specifically coding--within the formal K-12 system, the higher-education system, and beyond has the power to allow everyone to unlock their full potential.
Create a Direct Positive Impact
At CodeHS we value creating a direct positive social impact with our work. We work directly with students, teachers, schools and districts to implement computer science classes. Through building great curriculum, tools and resources to allow high schools to teach computer science, we can create a direct educational benefit to students to help explore the limitless world of computing. We believe that expanding access to computer science education will empower students to take an active role in creating the future.
Make It Fun and Creative
Bringing fun and creativity to every aspect of our work is a main focus for us at CodeHS. It starts with a fun, friendly and accessible curriculum, that allows students the opportunity to build creatively and engage in thoughtful problem solving. We also focus on developing a creative and fun environment to work in, and think that this allows us to bring novel approaches to challenging problems. Computing is about logic--but it’s also about creativity--and we hope to share that excitement with teachers and students through CodeHS.
