The Computer School

Public School in New York City, New York, USA

The Computer School was founded in 1983 through the hard work of Steve Siegelbaum, Peter Rentof, and several other teachers, and was located within the Joan of Arc Middle School facilities on West 92nd Street.

It's creation was made possible through a grant by the Logo developers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Computer School was able to expand to a new site at MS44 two years later.

The philosophy of The Computer School derives from the sense that the defining notion and judgement of a school is what it produces. It adheres to the questions: What do we want our students to get out of their tenure here? What are they expected to know and be able to do? What kind of people do we want them to be after their three years here? These questions must be answered as an ideal, and it is essential that we maintain that ideal as our vision.
