MFS Coding Program Featured in National Media
MFS is one of the few schools in the United States to provide Coding classes to all Lower School students, beginning with our 3-year-old preschoolers. The program has been featured in the local media and in national media as far away as Miami, Washington, D.C., and Lexington, KY. The course is part of the Lower School’s “specials” rotation that also includes Art, Music, Physical Education, Library, Quaker Education, and Computer Science. Students participate in Coding class twice every six days.
