MS 245 The Computer School Home

Environment for Advanced Learning Accelerated, progressive, public education in District 3 since 1983
The mission of the Computer School is to prepare a diverse population of learners with the academic and social skills necessary to be leaders in their community.  Through our accelerated, hands-on curriculum, students are challenged to solve problems collaboratively, to think critically, to reflect on their work, and to transfer their learning to the world beyond the classroom.  The Computer School aims to develop open-minded and well-rounded students through extensive engagement with the arts and technology in addition to traditional classroom disciplines.  We extend learning beyond the walls of the classroom and continually challenge students to make interdisciplinary connections. The Computer School empowers students to play an active role in their own education, their own community, and the world at large.
