Our Philosophy

Looking for coding lessons for kids in Frisco, TX? We're here to help. We believe every kid is different, so we teach them accordingly. Our expert coders teach our students in a super-small two to one ratio, allowing our Code Coaches to personalize projects built to suit each student. Kids are able to move at their own pace and engage in things that interest them most.

Our Programs

Our coding school's flagship after-school program, Code Coaching, combines a super-small 2:1 teaching ratio with individualized curriculum. Although Code Coaching works from novice to advanced coders, we also offer entry-level classes for those looking for a more traditional class in a larger ratio, as well as @school classes and our ever popular coding camps.

We're part of a nationwide system of over 65 locations around the country, teaching over 7,000 students every week with the brainpower of 1000+ expert Code Coaches®. Headquartered and founded in Silicon Valley since 2014, we're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere. Find out more about Who We Are in our brand video .

Our Testimonials

  • "I've been so impressed with our experience at The Coder School. So far my son has done 2 summer camps with one more to go and he is just as excited as day one. Every class has taught him something new and interesting. I love that there is finally something for someone like my son. These classes are worth every penny. The camps are lead by 1 adult and 2 student teachers giving every student plenty of one on one time. They take plenty of breaks away from the computer to clear their brain and interact socially. I know once the school year settles in we will be back for the Coder Coaching sessions."
    Deanna M, Frisco, TX
  • "My son’s coach is amazing and continues to update me weekly on my son’s progress with coder school. As of result of his detailed notes we were able to help my son move forward and make progress with his computer programming class! Thank you Alex Thomas we are truly appreciating all your time and effort."
    Raymond C, Frisco, TX
  • "All three of our boys attend class here ages 7-10 years. They have learned so much in a short time and look forward to class each week! As parents we like that they are learning a skill so applicable in the world we live in. They are always great with commincation, following up after class and super flexible. I highly reccommend!"
    Megan W, Frisco, TX
  • "Great school. Two of my kids enjoyed summer camps in the past and right now my 14 year old is doing the 2 on 1 code coaching. He's enjoying the freedom to create his own ideas for projects while having a coach available to give guidance and structure to the project, teaching new skills and answering questions. The code coaches seem to really enjoy coaching. When I pick up my son I see a lot of enthusiasm and camaraderie between the coach and my son, and they send detailed summary emails about what they worked on each week."
    Kate K, Frisco, TX
  • "TheCoderSchool is an amazing education program for children. My son has been doing coding with them for about a year, and he always looks forward to his lessons. COVID has presented some difficulties for everyone, but my son's coding lessons have gone on without a hitch. He enjoys the remote learning, and I think it allows him to be in a comfortable environment so he can focus more on the coding/learning. They have activities and programs in addition to coding lessons that look like fun. My son has not tried one of them out yet, but he is looking to in the coming months. If you are looking for ways to challenge your kids and give them an early start to coding, we think TheCoderSchool is a great place to start."

Frequently Asked Questions

How can coding help kids?

Many folks might think learning to code is so kids can actually code an app. Honestly, that's not usually the case! Coding real-life apps is tough. Despite what the media says, your kid is not writing some million dollar app by themselves in a month. Instead, coding helps kid *solve problems*. Coding is all about debugging and logically thinking through the fix. Breaking a large problem into smaller parts, logical sequencing, these are all important problem solving skills for any kid (or adult!). A second benefit is confidence and passion in technology. There's plenty of time for kids to learn the latest real tech (which changes all the time), but the time to build passion for technology (and a foundational knowledge base) is when they're young!

What is the best coding language to learn as a beginner?

The truth is, Scratch is amazing for a beginner at ANY AGE. If someone is truly a beginner, a platform like Scratch can allow them to create and engage much more quickly. Older kids (say 11 and up) can soon move to a language like Python or Javascript. Just remember that it takes a LOT MORE work to get Python/Javascript to do the same thing as Scratch - so the kids will need some patience. No matter what anyone tells you please DO NOT start learning with Java or C++! Those languages are too advanced to start with, and we've seen it too often - kids will give up because it's so hard! Definition of backfiring!

What is the best age to start coding?

It depends - we think the best age is the age they want to do it! Listen, there's plenty of time to *really* learn to code - there's a reason Comp Sci is a really tough college degree. The important thing in the younger years is to bring out the desire and passion to learn more - that's why at theCoderSchool we customize our projects based on the student's interests and really focus on engagement before learning.

How do I get accepted into a college computer science program?

These days, top colleges are incredibly selective. Learning to code by itself probably won't help you stand out enough. Instead, consider building a unique Coder Story. Can we help? Sure can!

What are the benefits of kids learning to code?

Children of all ages can benefit from learning coding skills, and students who get hands-on experience with computer programming go on to excel in other subjects Coding helps students gain computer proficiency and build real-world problem-solving skills. Exploring technology is essential for computer literacy. Building fundamental coding skills encourages creativity, promotes teamwork, and enhances spatial intelligence and logical thinking skills. Kids of all ages can learn computer science. For teenagers, learning how to code leads to the development of transferable skills that can be applied in future careers or workplaces. If your student is interested in data science or machine learning, a self-paced course in computer programming can help pave their path.

As you and your family consider coding programs, it helps to keep in mind:

  • The age of the student (we can teach kids as young as six)
  • Their individual interests (such as Lego, Roblox, robotics, video game design, or artificial intelligence)
  • Any previous hands-on experience with coding (even exposure to mobile apps or playing with Minecraft counts)
  • Preferred learning style (we offer both flexible and structured curricula and support self-paced learning)
  • Social skills (some students learn best in one-on-one lessons, while others favor teamwork)

    Whether the student wants to explore Minecraft modding in Minecraft camp, is interested in HTML, or wants to learn block-based coding like CSS, our interactive classes provide a great coding experience.

    Can a 6 year old do coding?

    Sure! Kids this young are just developing their sense of logic. While some advanced 6 year olds are ready to dive into learning Scratch, many are better off with fun learning apps like Kodable or Scratch Jr..

    How do kids learn to code?

    Same way adults do! The best way to learn something is to just DO it. It's not about all the theory and fancy words, it's about just doing it over and over again. If you're a parent with a college degree, think back. How much of that theoretical curriculum did you really use in your job? Or did you really learn your job by DOING your job? It's the same with kids, we'll mentor and guide them, but most importantly, we'll get them to code something custom that they want to code!

    Where is the best place to learn coding for kids?

    We're a little bit biased, but we think it's theCoderSchool! There's no better way to learn anything, including coding, than just doing it with a mentor to guide you. Online or in person, our Code Coaches will give you that low-ratio full attention that every kid deserves!
