Find It Fast
Mariposa Computer Science Magnet School (MCSMS) has partnered with Code To The Future (CTTF), the nation’s leading Computer Science program for Magnet Schools, to close the science gap by giving all students the opportunity to develop coding skills as part of the daily curriculum. Code To The Future is America’s first Comprehensive Solution for Computer Science Immersion — making schools more fun while preparing kids for the future.
Why Computer Science? The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of computer and information technology occupations will grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Our students need these skills to be competitive in the future job market. Additionally, over 90% of parents indicate that they want more Computer Science Education opportunities for their children, yet only 6% of Superintendents perceive this demand. Lancaster School District has set Mariposa Computer Science Magnet School apart from other schools.
