CS Recitations classrooms are equipped with computers for every student for use during class. There is no need for your student to bring any technology with them to class. Homework requires access to a computer with internet connectivity.
CS Recitations offers year-round computer science education offerings rather than short duration camp programs. Our mission is to incorporate programming, problem solving, critical reasoning, and creativity as core components of your child's education.
There is a lot of good content available through online classes and resources. CS Recitations emphasizes the value of the teacher and the classroom as part of the learning experience, providing in-person instruction, mentoring, and support that is only possible in an interactive, in-person setting.
Computer science teaches core skills in reasoning, problem solving, and logical thought that benefit students in other subject areas and career areas. Computer literacy is also important in many fields outside of computer science. Research shows that students who have early computer science education score better on standardized math exams.
Computer science offerings vary by school, but unfortunately many schools find that there is little room in the school day to add more comprehensive computer science offerings, especially prior to high school. CS Recitations offers classes that may not be available to your child in school and/or flexibility to fit other electives in at school or manage schedule constraints by taking computer science outside of the regular school day. CS Recitations emphasizes computer science and algorithmic thinking as core skills developed through a carefully planned, age-appropriate, comprehensive curriculum.
