Hey super-parent! We're happy you're looking for options to get
your kids learning to code. It's SUCH an amazing skill to learn and will help your
kids in more ways than you can imagine! We're super excited to be bringing Silicon
Valley's #1 kids coding program to the area to help your kids get going, so read on
and let's get our kids coding!
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 our form and we'll be in touch shortly to tell
Sorry, we don't have any events listed at the moment!
Hi, I am Charu Katyal and I am the General Manager and co-owner at The Coder School. Most of my work experience has been in HR and IT recruitment, and my volunteer experience is primarily in the realm of education whether it is causes that support underprivileged kids or volunteering at my daughter’s school. These arenas that are seemingly separate, blend together in The Coder School mission which is: to teach children coding in a fun, nurturing environment. Truly an intermeshing of education and HRD which can be summed up as, "Kids learning happily!" That they are, because the teaching is customized and paced according to a child’s strengths and interests.
In today's STEM focused environment, The Coder School is a perfect fit. When kids learn programming they hone many skills-logic, precision, reasoning, problem-solving, persistence and much, much more as they evolve into creative out-of-the-box thinkers. Our school lights a spark that is limited to not only coding, but one that carries over to math and science and beyond. So many of us assume we are not good in math, and it is my passion that children not borrow the same script. When kids learn to code they are learning math and science too as they organize data, break it down into smaller components, analyze, use math expressions and algorithms as they advance forward. For all of this to happen, the building block is an environment which is conducive to experimenting and taking risks. Welcome to a new experience...The Coder School!

Meet Our Co-Owner
My name is Kathy Kilo Peterson and I am co-owner of The Coder School, Chesterfield/Town & Country. I am a parent that is passionate about enriching the lives of children. My business partner, Charu Katyal, will be running the school on a daily basis. I will be in the background helping with community outreach. I am super excited to bring The Coder School to St. Louis. We have such a rich connection to the Founders, Hansel Lynn and Wayne Teng. Both are Silicon Valley guys that attended Washington University, returned to Silicon Valley, met and founded The Coder School. They are just as excited as we are to bring this approach of learning technology to St. Louis. What I love about teaching kids to code, is that they learn logical thinking and math while having a blast. The ability to code is a skill every child should have. The philosophy of the Coder School intertwines technology learning, critical thinking and presentation skills. These skillsets will continue to become increasingly important for our children. Feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com
