Did you know …

  • By 2018, more than 800,000 high-end computing jobs will be created in the economy, making it one of the fastest growing occupational fields.
  • Computer software engineer jobs are expected to grow 45% over the next five to seven years.
  • Computer science and computer engineering bachelor degrees are in high demand and command two of the top three average salary offers from employers among all majors.

Yet the percent of high schools with rigorous computer science courses fell from 40% to 27% from 2005 to 2009 and the percent of high schools with introductory computer science courses fell from 78% to 65% during the same period.

Luckily, Tahoma’s computer science program continues to grow yearly! We offer College Information Technology, AP Computer Science, and College Computer Programming II. You can find out more about these courses here: http://mshess.com/#videos Encourage your student to learn to live in a technological world — these courses aren’t just for “techies”; they are for everyone!
