My Students

The students at our school are curious and excited to learn. Many of them find learning through technology engaging and rewarding. Our students are risk-takers and enjoy the challenge that technology brings to them, which is vital to prepare them for their future.

Preparing our students with 21st Century skills is crucial.

We feel what better way to get children excited about Computer Science than hands-on programming with robots. Many of our students have never been taught how to program and code. Programming teaches students computational and problem-solving skills.
