In the 21st century, coding is a foundational skill, just like reading and writing. Everyone should get the chance to learn how to code—it's a skill that provides limitless creative opportunities to students and future generations.
With great curriculum, resources, and support, school districts across the country can implement high-quality computer science programs. At CodeHS, our goal is to make computer science education fun and accessible to all!

Texas K-12 Computer Science Policies
Texas has been a leader in computer science education for years. The State Board of Education adopted a Long-Range Plan for Public Education that establishes goals through the year 2030. The goal is to provide children access to the resources they need to learn, thrive, and grow. This reflects a desire to have equitable access to funding, advanced courses (including computer science) and modern technology.
According to the Technology Applications Curriculum Requirement, every Texas district must offer computer science 74.3(b)(2)(I) and each student must have the opportunity to participate in Computer Science II or AP Computer Science 74.3(b)(4).Learn More

CodeHS' Impact in Texas
Denison High School - Denison, Texas
Spencer Barnett puts his programming skill to the test and teaches the first ever computer science classes at Denison High School in rural Texas.Full Story
You all are making a huge difference in the lives of students with a lot stacked against them.
Teaching Computer Science has ignited my passion for the subject. CodeHS has been a big part of that.
I really appreciate the help that you're giving me. Sometimes I get so frustrated with coding, but I can't give up, I have to keep on trying in order to improve my skills in CodeHS.
