This innovative specialty small school, focused on computer coding and multiple technology pathways through an inquiry-based instructional design, is one of the first public high schools of its kind. As the needs of industry and workforce constantly change, our students will be prepared to enter a job market where technology and computer science skills are a basic requirement. Employment opportunities in technology related careers are growing at a faster rate than other industries.
Inquiry design and project-based learning provide the instructional framework, innovation and computer science are the focus, and academic courses are integrated to offer a dynamic, student-centered academic experience. Students will receive a full high school curricula of core academic classes and electives, including Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes at Phoenix Coding Academy. Community and industry partnerships will facilitate guest instructors and workshops, field trips, mentors and job-shadowing, and internships for students and staff. CTE pathways such as software development, web design, networking, information security, engineering, and entrepreneurship related to the technology industry will not only provide select industry certification and college dual enrollment, but will also prepare the students for success in college, career and life.
