Phoenix Union’s newest small specialty school, the Phoenix Coding Academy, had a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony on February 10th, 2016 at 10 a.m. 

 

Billed as an Innovation and Technology High School, the newly-constructed school located adjacent Central High School, will focus on computer coding and technological skills in an inquiry-based model valuing student curiosity, collaboration, critical thinking, engagement and relevance. Opening with a first class of ninth-graders in August of 2016, students will prepare for college and future careers, learning software development, including game design, web and app development, networking, information security, automation and other concepts in a project-based environment.  Partnerships with the local tech industry will afford opportunities for guest instructors, internships and career  pathways, preparing a more diverse future workforce for high-demand jobs within the technology sector.

 

Speakers included Mayor Greg Stanton; Vice Mayor Daniel Valenzuela, Councilwoman and Governing Board member Laura Pastor, Board members Ian Danley and Stephanie Parra; Principal Seth Beute and Alhambra alum and digital marketing entrepreneur Josh Elizetxe and Associate Superintendent Dr. Althe Allen.  Students from coding clubs at Camelback and Central were special guests.  Central Choir members sang the National Anthem as the Central JROTC Color Guard raised the school’s U.S. Flag for the first time.   Board President Lela Alston dedicated the building, and the ribbon was cut, allowing over 200 attendees to explore the building.
