I'll be teaching an intro to programming course to gifted high school students next year but my own programming is limited to college courses years ago and more recently teaching middle school Scratch classes. 

I was looking at CodeHS's Intro to CS course but worry that the price may be too much for our charter school. Anyone used it? Is it worth it? Other good alternatives or ideas?

Thanks!

Vidcode and Girl Scouts of greater NY are pleased to present Hour of code and Tech Jam that will help enrich students more with the knowledge of Comp Science. #Vidcode #50states
We'd be incredibly grateful if you'd spend just 10 minutes today helping share this fun celebration of Comp Science Education Week on your social networks. You know the drill:

Hey all! Computer classes at our secondary school in CO are required from 6th-10th grade at our school Students have it for the entire year.

What do you feel they should know as far as coding/programing goes by the time they finish 10th grade? I want to know what seems to be a fair goal considering the comp classes are not electives and probably should be pretty approachable to all types of learners, however I'd like to challenge them as well. 

Currently, the only coding exposure they have is a 5-week unit of Tynker in 8th grade, and an entire year in 10th grade of designing a website using HTML/CSS with intro to JS. (We use the washington.edu ciriculum linked below for that)

Thoughts?

Not for High School, but worth exploring for middle school and for its approach: Tynker
