Whether your coder is brand new to Scratch or already building distributed Python programs, we can help him or her get to the next level. Unlike other programs, our talented coaches are trained to tailor the lessons to your kid’s interests with an individualized curriculum. This unique approach fosters a lifelong passion for building and technology. Our program will equip your child with critical skills (logic, breaking complex problems into manageable chunks, working with others towards an end goal) and confidence valuable in any future career.

Small student to coach ratio (2:1), customized project-base coding lessons engage students. We work with each coder in their area of interest and work at their own pace. Learn Scratch, Python, C++, Unity, Java, HTML, Javascript, CSS, Minecraft, Raspberry Pi, AI, App dev and other technologies.

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun. Interested? Fill out the form and we'll be in touch shortly to tell you more!

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 Milpitas, CA

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.

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 50 locations around the country, teaching well over 5,000 students every week with the brainpower of 750+ expert Code Coaches®. We're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded 7 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.

EXPERIENCE THE CODER SCHOOL AT YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL

Our@School program offers our introductory Code Class at your school campus to provide more coding opportunities for students who can't make it to our in-house Code Class at our facility in Milpitas.

These classes vary in duration, based on the specific school. Unless otherwise specified, all classes use "Scratch", which is a graphical drag-and-drop programming environment that was developed by MIT. We use that tool to teach the basic fundamentals of all computer programming languages. This includes functions, looping, conditional processing, variables, Cartesian coordinates and basic arithmetic operations, without needing to worry about the detailed syntax of a typed programming language.

Please contact us at (408) 657-0623 or milpitas@thecoderschool.com to learn how to establish an on-site coding program at your school.

Meet our Owner

Paul Dosanjh

My name is Paul and I'm the General Manager and Owner at theCoderSchool in Milpitas. I graduated with a BSc in Computer Science from California State University, Chico and spent the next 30 years working as a Software Engineer/Technical Lead at high tech companies such as Bell Northern Research, Nortel and Cisco Systems right here in the Silicon Valley. It has always been a dream of mine to spend part of my working career giving back to my community. Therefore, I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of theCoderSchool which allows me to introduce technology in a fun way to our next generation of innovators and technology leaders.

Kids love using technology, coding gives them an opportunity to focus on something they enjoy in a new way. They will no longer simply play the game on their computer or phone, they will break down information into manageable parts and discover how it works and even how to make it better. ​Most importantly, coding is a doorway to developing a range of cross-curricular skills. It can be a collaborative process, giving kids the opportunity to work together, solve problems and evaluate each other's work. It will develop problem solving, patience, resilience, logical thinking, creativity and communication skills. Hence, it can be a great asset in all manner of subjects and prepare them for the future, no matter what career they eventually want to pursue. If you want to learn more about what we do, ​feel free to reach out to me anytime at ​paul@thecoderschool.com
