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 Montgomery, NJ

Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code! That's where our Code Coaches® come in, providing a long-term mentoring relationship to teach kids to code, from someone who's a coder themselves.

Our coding school's flagship program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small teaching ratio of typically 2:1 or 1:1 with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. This program works for kids of all ages and skill levels. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Code Coaches can help your kids achieve their programming 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. Our lessons are taught in-person at our schools where available, or can be online for social distancing. Fill out our form above to get a free trial today!

Our Coder Tree®

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. Like real trees, our students' coding journeys are unique from each other, but all require strong foundations and trunks to support their higher, advanced branches. Need a magnifying glass? Here's a zoomable view.

Tracking Progress

Custom coding means tracking progress is even more important! Our suite of proprietary tools* does just that. Our Coder Progress and Notes+ systems chart weekly progress through concept tracking and freeform notes. App Reviews track longer term progress by identifying current skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Finally, our Student Portal is a one-stop shop to see it all and then some! Confused? It's complicated! Get an idea by clicking through a Sample Student's functional Student Portal to see for yourself.

Our Testimonials

  • "Our 8 year old has tried coding before, but didn't fall in love with it until he enrolled in tcs Montgomery. They make it engaging and fun! I have never seen our title girl so excited to go to any lessons before this. Keep up the great work!"
    Pat T, Montgomery
  • "I can't thank you & your team enough for the joy & excitement you've brought to my son. Before the week ended he asked if he could continue throughout the year. He has found his tribe!!"
    Gaye M., Somerset
  • "Our last coding experience was good but couldn't compare to the fun and learning our kids had at tcs Montgomery. It was very well done. I can recommend this coding school with full confidence."
    James S., Basking Ridge
  • "If you want your child to learn STEM concepts via coding, send them here. I've been in IT for 23 years and I have not seen anything close to the customized curriculum they created for Manesh. Hands down, this is the place you want your kids to be."

Our Schools

Meet Our Owners

Young Family

Hello there fellow super parent! We're Michael and Dominique, co-owners of theCoderSchool Montgomery. As a local family, we are excited to bring this dedicated coding program to our students.

Michael has always had a passion for helping kids learn. As a young man he started a youth group, Positivity, that sought to harness the energy of his peers to have a meaningful impact on the community. As a graduate student Michael designed and taught several courses at The University of Iowa. As a law student, Michael continued to engage in childhood education and noticed an emerging paradigm shift in the way a newer generation processed information. The seed was planted. Michael became committed to become a part of something meaningful that could positively impact the lives of our kids. theCoderSchool Montgomery is the perfect vehicle to facilitate that pursuit.

Dominique has been dedicated to the enrichment of young people for the past 30 years. She has led the development and delivery of nationally recognized K-12 educational programs for some of the most trusted names in learning including Scholastic, ACT, and Lakeshore Learning. Dominique is very knowledgeable in the areas of literacy, after school programming, summer learning, 21st century skills and STEAM. Through her experience, she has helped parents and educators connect teaching practices with relevant research and resources. She brings a creative energy and deep commitment to helping children reach their full potential and looks forward to leading this new environment of innovation, creativity, and enrichment for all of the students and families of theCoderSchool Montgomery.

To watch how coding drives innovation is like watching the future unfold. There is an undeniable beauty in seeing students take an idea that they have, make that idea come to life, and then share that idea with millions of people. Montgomery, Princeton and Hillsborough are at the cutting edge of educational innovation and we are excited about bringing this offering to our kids—including our own two tech savvy young girls. We can be reached anytime at myoung@thecoderschool.com and dyoung@thecoderschool.com.
