= Introduction =

This is a listing of schools that are using Python in their curriculum.

I would like to confirm each of the schools below by linking to a specific web page with a course listing and/or the professor(s) teaching classes that involve the use of Python. Each listing should be expanded with a description of how Python is being used. -- [[KevinAltis|KevinAltis]]

Need to copy info from:

 * http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/pyBiblio/schools.php

= High Schools =

 * Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart - Houston, TX
 * Yorktown High School, in Arlington Virginia ([[http://www.elkner.net/|Jeff Elkner]])

= Colleges and Universities =

== Australia ==

 * University of New South Wales
  * Computer science taught/teaches course(s) with Python (as of about 2001)

 * RMIT University
  * Computer science teaches course with Python

 * University of Queensland
  * [[http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~csse1001/|CSSE1001 Introduction to Software Engineering I]]

== Bosnia and Herzegovina ==

 * University of Banja Luka
  * Python is used in Introduction to CS1 and Introduction to CS2 courses at Department of Mathematics and Informatics

== Canada ==

 * University of Toronto
  * The CS department has introduced [[http://www.artsandscience.utoronto.ca/ofr/calendar/crs_csc.htm#CSC120H1|Computer Science for the Sciences]], an introductory course aimed at (mainly) life sciences students.
  * [[http://www.cdf.toronto.edu/~csc207h/winter|CSC207H]] is a third-semester course that teaches several weeks of Python.
  * A few 2nd- and 3rd-year theory courses have students implement some algorithms in Python.

 * University of Waterloo
  * One of the more prestigious engineering/comp-sci schools in Canada is using it officially in [[http://www.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~cs488/|CS488 (Intro to 3D graphics)]], and I'm told there's lots of use among faculty, staff and students. I don't think they actually teach much Python, they're focused on teaching OpenGL/graphics programming, but they do wind up using it as the framework into which the students slot their code.

 * Wilfrid Laurier University

 * Simon Fraser University
  * Python is used in CMPT 120 (Intro to CS and Programming I). This course is designed for new Computing Science majors with little or no programming background. Other students throughout the University are also encouraged to take this course for breadth.
  * Python is also used to introduce server-side web programming in CMPT 165 (Intro to the Internet and WWW).
  * Several more specialized courses use Python as well. This includes web systems, computational linguistics, and others.

 * Université Laval
  * The EECE department is giving an [[https://capsuleweb.ulaval.ca/pls/etprod7/bwckctlg.p_disp_course_detail?cat_term_in=201009&subj_code_in=GLO&crse_numb_in=1900|Introductory course on programming using Python (GLO-1900)]] to all first year students in the programs of Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering (and possibly to Software Engineering students in 2011).

 * University of Alberta
  * Python is used in CMPUT 174/175 (Intro to CS and Programming I/II). This course is designed for new Computing Science majors with little or no programming background. Other students throughout the University are also encouraged to take this course for breadth.
