Coding Program at Round Rock ISD

Please note : This is a paid after-school program. See below for fee details. 

Dear Parents,

As we surround ourselves with technology, learning to code has become a fundamental skill for our children to confidently navigate the world they are going to graduate into.

Recognizing this need, Round Rock ISD and CodeWizardsHQ are partnering to offer a comprehensive coding education program for the 2019-20 school year in select middle schools. Students who register for the program will attend classes once/week, after school from an RRISD Middle School computer lab.

Due to space restrictions at the computer lab, enrollment into the program is limited to 24 students per school on a first come, first serve basis.

PARENT & STUDENT REVIEWS:

Kim Glasgow

The instructor was awesome. He explained things well and was on the ball in helping the students as they did their on-class coding exercises. He was very knowledgeable, managed the class well and was able to keep them learning together and moving forward.

My son loved the class he took with Code Wizards HQ. The material was presented in a way that was interesting, engaging, and easy to grasp. It was a great introduction to coding for him and he is eager to carry on with more learning. Thank you for offering these valuable classes!
