Who is theCoderSchool

Code Coaching®

Code Coaching® is our core philosophy, and what our school is all about!  We believe that every student is different, and that kids should learn in the way that works best for each child. How? Our Code Coaches® - they're the magic sauce!  Unlike some coding schools, we don't just leave the kids in front of a computer, expecting the software to teach them how to code. Nor do we force all kids to go through the same curriculum or projects, regardless of their skills and interests. Instead, our Code Coaches® customize their lessons for each child, and focus on a 2 on 1 mentee-mentor relationship with our kids so our students can get the focused attention they need.

Code Coaching® works for kids of all ages and skill levels, from novice to advanced. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Coaches can help your kids achieve their goals.

Sessions run one or two hours a week (your choice), at the same time every week on a schedule that works for both you and our assigned Coach. Check out our video for more info!

Coding Lessons for Kids in Commack, NY

Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code. theCoderSchool has a staff of hundreds of Code Coaches all around the country, so we know a thing or two about mentoring students in computer science. That's why our after-school coding classes for kids revolve around this relationship, providing a long-term mentor in a Code Coach to teach kids to code, from someone who's an expert coder themselves. Conveniently located near great schools like Candlewood and Wood Park Primary, theCoderSchool Commack is situated in the bustling Commack Corners Shopping Center on Long Island, at the corner of Commack Road and Jericho Turnpike. Looking for other nearby locations on Long Island? Be sure to check out our Syosset or Roslyn schools.

Programs at theCoderSchool

Our coding school's flagship after-school program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small 2:1 teaching ratio with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. While Code Coaching is our premium program, we also offer a more traditional Code Class for those looking for either software-driven or static-curriculum teaching in a larger ratio. And during summer and holiday breaks, we offer Coding Camps. When available, programs are offered in both in-person and virtual formats. Contact us to find out more and get a free trial today.

theCoderSchool System

We're part of a nationwide system of passionate owners in over 55 locations around the country, teaching over 6,000 students every week with the brainpower of 800+ expert Code Coaches®. We're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded 7 and a half years ago, way back in August of 2014. In short, we know a thing or two about teaching kids to code - so let's get to it!

What Kids Learn

We believe that every student learns in his or her own way, not only in what they want to work on, but how fast and how much. Our Coder Tree® is a visualization of our students' learning options as they grow and a sampling of some of the topics we teach. Find more details about what kids are learning by checking out our Coder Tree®.

Tracking Progress

Our suite of proprietary tools* chart weekly progress by tracking concepts and apps, and longer term progress by identifying skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Get an idea of our progress tools by clicking through a Sample Student's Student Portal to see for yourself.

Summer Camps

Let's get ready for summer camps! Our camps are run in our school from 9am-3pm Mon-Fri.

Our camps are held at our sweet coding facilities (when possible) and leverage goodies from our year-round programs to create a uniquely collaborative environment where the kids work together, code together, and have a rockin’ fun summer together! Kids bring their own lunches or purchase weekly meal plans and we'll take care of the rest! Kids code throughout the week then demo their week's creations later that afternoon.!

Camp registration may be cancelled up to 60 days prior to the first day of the start of camp for a full refund. Cancellations made up to 30 days prior are eligible for a 50% refund.

Our Schools

Meet our Site Director

Christian Algarra

My name is Christian and I am excited to join theCoderSchool in Commack as the Site Director! I attended Stony Brook University and graduated with my degree in Exercise Science. For the past eight years, I have been running various gyms including Blink Fitness, Gold’s Gym, 24 Hour Fitness and most recently, UFC Gym in New Hyde Park. I got into fitness for personal reasons and was able to successfully navigate my own journey to becoming healthier. That journey inspired me to work on helping others with their own situations.

I am enthusiastic about inspiring people to reach their goals and doing it in a warm, welcoming, and fun environment. This is the type of energy that I brought to the fitness world and it’s what I plan to bring to theCoderSchool!

On a personal note, I have a beautiful wife and daughter, two dogs (one English and one French bulldog), I’m a huge baseball fan and I love to draw!

Meet Our Owner

Noreen Kazi

My name is Noreen Kazi and I’m the owner of theCoderSchool Commack. I am an active Long Island parent that is excited about bringing this dedicated coding program to our students. I have experience as a community leader and organizer and I have spent over 20 years creating educational curriculums and leading programs focused on ensuring that our youth are ready to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Through my experience designing educational curriculums, I have had the privilege of seeing how technology has positively impacted curriculum development. What I love about coding is that it drives innovation – coding provides students with the ability to take an idea that they have, make that idea come to life, and then share that idea with millions of people. Additionally, coding can provide a cross curricular benefit by improving student’s math skills as they start to visualize and break down problems from other angles. I truly believe that Long Island is at the cutting edge of educational innovation and I am excited about bringing this offering to our kids. You can reach me anytime at noreen@thecoderschool.com.

Meet Our Senior Advisor

Nisha Bhalla

My name is Nisha Bhalla and I am the Senior Advisor of theCoderSchool Commack. I still remember learning how to code in Linux and was fascinated with the collaboration and support of the programming community as we all looked to build a better program, together. Technology has continued to drive significant change and the ability to code is a skill set that every student should have.

I am so excited about bringing this program to Suffolk County in a setting that is both educational and fun. As a graduate of Harvard Business School, I have seen firsthand the way technology has impacted the future of all industries from farming to healthcare and I can’t wait to bring this knowledge to our students. Additionally, I have over 10 years of experience working in product development roles at various Fortune 500 companies and start-ups and I am thrilled about sharing this career knowledge with our students.

I’m also passionate about mentoring students on their communication and presentation skills, and I love that this program will not only teach kids how to code, but also how to engage their audiences to effectively communicate their ideas and opinions.
