Software and Systems Development


This pathway prepares students for careers in computer science. Key concepts include design, data, abstract thinking, algorithms, programming, computing systems, networks, and innovation. Most students certifying at graduation after having completed AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science, where they also have an opportunity to earn college credit. Outside of the classroom students compete in FIRST robotics.


All courses meet a-g CSU/UC eligibility. Colleges may provide credit for AP Exam performance.

Algebra 1 Computer Programming (Concentrator)

Students make the abstract concrete by learning Algebra 1 in a software and systems context through programming and multimedia projects. Scratch and Bootstrap are used.

Geometry Computer Visualizations (Concentrator)

Using applied geometry student create a 3D-printed project. Geometric principals are integrated with computer-based programs using ICT.

AP Computer Science Principles (Completer)

Introduces students to the breadth of computer science with focus using Java Script. Students design and evaluate solutions to solve problems through algorithms and software programs.

AP Computer Science A (Completer)

More advanced than AP Computer Science Principles, students understand coding through analyzing, writing, and testing codes. They explore modularity, variables, and control structures with a focus in Java.

Royal Robotics Team

Students compete in FIRST robotics to design, build, and program robots to compete in local events. Royal is a top team in Ventura and LA Counties.
