New York City gets a Software Engineering High School

Pt 451

New York City gets a Software Engineering High School. Joel writes -

This fall New York City will open The Academy for Software Engineering, the city’s first public high school that will actually train kids to develop software. The project has been a long time dream ofMike Zamansky, the highly-regarded CS teacher at New York’s elite Stuyvesant public high school. It was jump started when Fred Wilson, a VC at Union Square Ventures, promised to get the tech community to help with knowledge, advice, and money.

  1. This sounds like an interesting idea, but I wonder – will there be enough variety of course options for the 400-500 student school?

    While there are disadvantages to larger NYC high schools with 3000+ students, the students have greater freedom to explore their interests.
