Welcome to theCoderSchool, a place where kids learn to code in our cool startup-vibe locations. Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, theCoderSchool believes every kid is unique, and we treat them that way. We don’t believe in kids being taught by software, and we don’t like one-size-fits-all curriculums. Instead we focus on a mentor relationship with experienced coders, Code Coaches who can guide our students through their amazing technical journey. Learn to code, change the world®.

Each year, theCoderSchool partners with the Congressional App Challenge, a nationwide coding contest run by districts of the U.S. Congress. Check out some of our winners below!
Hansel and Wayne have been best buds and business partners for almost 20 years, even playing in a hilariously horrible but awesomely fun punk-pop cover band together. Back in 2013, Hansel happened to be trying to get his own kids to learn to code. When his oldest, Maile (10 at the time), whipped through an online learning website really fast, proud Papa asked some questions. To his surprise, Maile really didn’t learn much at all! “I just clicked through to get to the end”, they said (sound familiar, parents?!). That was the lightbulb moment when Hansel realized that software can’t teach kids – PEOPLE need to teach kids. And thus the idea behind theCoderSchool and our Code Coaches® mentoring philosophy was born. Wanna know more?
