Jackson has moved to the forefront among communities who recognize the importance of integrating a coding into the public school curriculum. Students throughout four high schools in the Jackson-Madison County School System are learning how to write computer code through coding clubs. Some of these students were recently recognized as the top six performing students in the school’s “CO:de Academy.”

“CO:de Academy” is an extracurricular activity, in which students learn various aspects of computer programming, including website design, mobile app development, database programming and user experience. The program utilizes Treehouse, an interactive, online learning experience which allows students to learn to code at any level, and at their own pace.

The top six performing students, along with the teacher who had the most top performing students, will receive a trip to San Francisco, CA to visit Google Headquarters and have an opportunity to meet with other web developers.
