Center for Design & Computer Sciences
The Center for Design and Computer Sciences prepares students for future success by developing their capacity to implement design processes, think critically, demonstrate creativity, problem-solve, and work collaboratively. The thematic curriculum is grounded in a computational thinking and design framework which include an introduction to foundational computer science knowledge and competencies. This program fosters the development of critical non-cognitive skills such as perseverance, decision-making, and self-motivation. Students in all grade levels engage in instruction using coding languages and concepts. Additionally, students complete elective courses that incorporate technology use on topics such as robotics, computer programming, digital music, and digital art, to name a few.
