theCoderSchool will be located at 3501 Long Prairie Road in Flower Mound.

theCoderSchool – recently identified as one of “Entrepreneur” magazine’s “top five franchises to watch” – has announced that a new school is set to open Saturday in Flower Mound. 

To celebrate, it  will offer free hour-long coding workshops to kids age 8-18, allowing both parents and kids a complimentary opportunity to see that not only is coding a fun, creative outlet – it’s also an incredibly valuable skill that is in high demand. The workshops will take place from 1-5 p.m. Saturday.

Workshops offered are: Games are Awesome, which runs from 1-2 p.m. and 3-4 p.m.; and Python Startup, which runs from 2-3 p.m. and 4-5 p.m. Sign up by going to

The new school will aim to show a new generation of kids how galvanizing and stimulating technology can be, while coaching coding skills that are highly in demand and applicable across all industries.

The new school will be owned by Dean Tarpley, who also owns theCoderSchool’s Frisco location.  Tarpley, no stranger to franchising, also owns 27 School of Rock locations across nine states and ultimately plans to open eight to 10 additional theCoderSchools throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth market.

“I’m thrilled to continue growing theCoderSchool’s presence in the greater DFW area,” Tarpley said.  “There is a massive need for coders and programmers in this country right now. However, through our customized, project-based approach we aim to show parents and kids that learning to code does more than just open career doors – it’s a great creative outlet, and it truly is a fun experience.”

theCoderSchool was built with the desire to provide children aged 8 to 18 years with a welcoming environment to develop computer programming skills. theCoderSchool uses a variety of platforms to teach various coding languages, such as HTML, CSS, Python, Javascript and more. Every lesson is customized with the help of trained Code coaches, who use a 2-on-1 approach to teaching.

“Dean and his team have done a fantastic job already with the existing school in Frisco of setting kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with tech and coding,” said theCoderSchool founder Hansel Lynn. “We can’t wait to see the same level of success in Flower Mound – theCoderSchool’s prime directive is always to provide a fun, engaging environment while improving kids’ logic, ideation and creative thinking skills.”

theCoderSchool is also a founding member of the International Alliance of Youth Coding Educators. The IAYCE is an alliance of global partners whose goal is to further coding education for youth around the world.
