Zuckerberg first began experimenting with computers and software programs when he was in middle school. He had a private tutor, David Newman, who helped him and has called Zuckerberg a “prodigy” because he was so skilled.

He attended Ardsley High School for his freshman and sophomore years. While at Ardsley, he excelled in the classics. His passion for classical works has stayed with him since then. On his college application, he said that he could read and write Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek, all of which are classical languages.
