theCoderSchool is Coming to La Jolla

Silicon Valley-based children’s coding franchise set to open second San Diego area location

October 31, 2019 // // Palo Alto, CA - theCoderSchool - whose motto is “Learn to code. Change the world.” - is continuing their California expansion. The school - which aims to show the next generation of kids how inspiring and exciting technology can be - is set to open in La Jolla in early November.

Located at 7484 La Jolla Blvd., the new school will be owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Artur Lopes Pedrosa and Aline Pampalon. The couple was introduced to the brand through their friends and fellow theCoderSchool franchisees.

“We are thrilled to open the first school in the La Jolla area,” Pedrosa said. “After seeing firsthand the impact the school can have on a student and in the community, we knew we had to get involved. Having a son ourselves, we know the value of a student-focus education, and we’re excited to bring that to La Jolla.”

The couple grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and both got involved with fast paced careers in marketing for Pampalon and franchising for Pedrosa. Pedrosa then had the opportunity to travel to San Diego in 2010 and knew it was the perfect fit for his family. The family moved to the area some time later and have fallen in love with La Jolla.

“It’s really a dream come true for us as a family,” Pampalon added. “We couldn’t have imagined a better community or business to be a part of.”

Founded by Hansel Lynn and incubated with the help of his best friend, Wayne Teng, theCoderSchool was built with the desire to provide children aged 7 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 Code Coaching lesson is customized with the help of experienced Code Coaches® who use a 2-on-1 approach to teaching.

“As we continue to expand our presence throughout the Southern California, it’s critical to find the right franchise partners who are truly passionate about setting kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with technology and coding,” added Lynn. “This is why we couldn’t be more excited to have Artur and Aline with theCoderSchool team. They both care deeply about this mission, and we are confident they will bring our level of commitment to kids and parents in La Jolla and show the community just how fun learning to code can be.”
