Miami Christian School focuses on graduating well-rounded students with a broad range of activities from computer sciences to sports. Closing out 2018, students participated in the Computer Science Education Week’s Hour of Code with computer activities designed to demystify code, and to show students that anyone can learn the basics of coding and to broaden participation in the field of Computer Science. Each year, in December, MCS participates along with millions of students in the U.S. and 180 countries worldwide.
