MUSD Offers First Computer Science Immersion Schools in Arizona
MUSD teachers are engaging students in computer skill development, using both programming and game design to create a cutting-edge learning environment.
Teamed with Code To The Future, the nation’s leading Computer Science program for Immersion Schools, Marana teachers are engaging students in computer skill development using both programming and game design, giving students a well–rounded understanding of how to utilize technology to create.
As a District committed to inspiring students to learn today and lead tomorrow, in August 2016, Quail Run Elementary School and Gladden Farms Elementary School, became the first Code To The Future computer science immersion schools in the state to integrate computer science with all core content classes. In August 2017, Marana Middle School and Tortolita Middle School also partnered with Code To The Future to integrate computer science into various team core content classes as well as provide a semester long elective opportunity for all middle school students.
MUSD is ensuring students are provided with the skills necessary to be successful in an ever changing world. Students are taught a comprehensive curriculum where computer science is integrated with content in English Language Arts, math, science, and social studies (K-6) to create an engaging, interactive and fun learning environment. Access to Chromebook mobile devices and new classroom furniture enhance the learning environment, providing the necessary skills for the high growth, high demand jobs of the future.
