Job Description

Who We Are

Comp Sci High is a new charter high school serving the South Bronx that opened in August of 2018.

Our founding team came together to start CSH because we believe that students in the Bronx can and will join the next generation of programmers, tech entrepreneurs, computer scientists, and overall become leading professionals with tech skills for any industry.

We also wanted to build a community of adults with strong connections to each other, to kids and families, and to the Bronx community.

Our Mission

To ensure every student graduates with a college acceptance letter, high tech skills, real work experience, and a robust plan to turn those opportunities into a successful career where they will achieve the median income of the U.S. by the age of 25.
