Welcome to the Computer Science Pathway at Franklin High School. My name is Mr. Dagler, and I am the teacher for this pathway. In this website, you will find a description for all of the classes I teach and how I connect my students to industry partners: guest speakers, field trips, coding camps, and competitions.
Programming and web-development are the two pathways I offer. The three year sequence for the programming pathway is Exploring Computer Science, AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science A. The three year sequence for the the web-development pathway is Exploring Computer Science, Web-Development 1 and Web-Development 2. You will earn a graduation cord when you take one additional course in either pathway. If you are interested in my classes or have any other questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 714-8150 x 41912.
