Full Story

I’ve been working with CodeHS for two years now. I have been impressed with the curriculum, teacher tools, the support and the active development of new curricula. - John Wilson, Teacher at Park Slope Collegiate in New York

CodeHS gives me all of the resources I need in order to teach AP Computer Science A. The lessons and exercises are great for a flipped classroom. The ability to create quizzes and tests on the site is useful, and the ability to have students write their own code in the Sandbox for assignments that I give them during class makes it a one-stop place for Java! - Mariel Schneggenburger, Teacher at Southern Cayuga in New York

I feel particularly passionate right now about the pedagogy I have adopted that is rooted in your platform! The range of students that are finding success is impressive. - Vera Donovan, Teacher at Robert Louis Stevenson School in New York

Everything is going great! Thanks, love the product and will continue to use it next year and recommend to other schools. I'm a huge proponent of blended-learning, so this is the perfect tool! - Aaron Grill, Teacher at the Browning School in New York
