CodeHS' Impact in Montana

In short, I love the program and how it progresses the kids through the programming concepts. The kids all love it and are eager to get started each day. Plus, it is fun to teach as I like working through the roadblocks with the kids. It is like solving a big ol' puzzle! - Kelly Morford, Teacher at Libby High School in Montana

My freshmen absolutely love computer programming. They rush in and get started way before the bell rings and keep going after the dismissal bell. - Bruce Supalla, Teacher at Helena Christian School in Montana

The CodeHS environment is really great and the students are really engaged in the material. I have not seen a student disengaged for even a few minutes. - Kelly Morford, Teacher at Libby High School in Montana

K-12 Computer Science in Montana
