Software and System Development

  • Computer Science Essentials helps students create a strong foundation to advance to subsequent courses.
  • AP Computer Science Principles centers on computational thinking practice and seven big ideas. The end of year AP assessment is a mix of multiple choice questions and two performance tasks created during the school year.
  • AP Computer Science A is equivalent to a first-semester, college-level course in computer science for CS majors. The course introduces students to computer science using Java programming language and presents fundamental topics that include problem solving, algorithms, and abstraction.
