CodeHS’ Impact in Missouri

“As an instructor, I really appreciate the thorough lesson plans and example student questions. Also, the filter with grading the different classes makes it so much easier for my specific teaching situation! This has been one of the best experiences teaching I have had in my 22 years.” - Chad Meyer, Teacher at Odessa High School in Missouri

"By the way, your curriculum is by far the best and easiest for my students to follow (and I've explored many). Thanks so much!" - Beth Hunt, Teacher at ABCode in Missouri

"I just wanted to let you know that I went in and observed today in the Web Design classroom and I am very excited about what is happening. Jade Wright is very knowledgeable about the content of the class and has a firm grip on the CodeHS program. In addition, the students are VERY EXCITED and HIGHLY ENGAGED in the content. We are very excited about the new CS program at Bucklin High School!" - Nicole Head, Principal at Bucklin R-II in Missouri

K-12 Computer Science in Missouri

In 2018, a group of educators began developing K-12 computer science standards for Missouri schools and by 2019, these standards were passed by Missouri Governor Mike Parson. Learn More.

At this point, Missouri does not require computer science in schools, however, a computer science course can count as a high school math class for graduation.
