    "Our daughter is in first grade after a fantastic kindergarten year. The experience she is having seems unique and exceptional. It's hard to know where to begin in describing why we feel blessed. One obvious thing the project-based arts-rich curriculum -- our daughter gets dance, theater, music, and studio art every week. All of them. Art is woven through the curriculum, and made a way of understanding and engaging the world. CACS practices 'looping' so she has the same teacher and room as last year. So her class hit the ground running! The community is very strong. There is a sense that people are committed to the school -- and watching out for each others' kids. It feels like a co-op. This leads to things like the one unified afterschool program, available to ALL students. That 'watching over' part is important to us. The emotional safety of students is a high and self-evident priority at CACS. That ripples through the way conflicts are addressed at every level. The emotional safety, the sense that CACS grows good humans... and inculcates a love of learning... and a respect for curiosity -- and for one another... those are the things we love!"

    "Remember when you were in middle school and the majority conformed to whoever and whatever was popular? Imagine a school where nonconformity is the norm. That s Creative Arts. Every student works hard on developing who they are and praised for it. I attended the 8th grade graduation in May and all the students were so proud of their individualism. All who attended could clearly see future innovators, nobel laureates, rocket scientists, artists, writers, and goodwill ambassadors. If you have a chance, attend the graduation, it s intimate, fun, emotional, and it s a great window into what the community is like and how your child will develop if they attend CACS. From the first day of Kindergarten until their last day, students are encouraged to think outside the box, create, invent, and problem-solve. They are challenged and enjoy learning. My son will graduate next year and it will be hard to find a high school that will even come close to matching CACS. We feel incredibly lucky to be a part of the CACS community."

    "Exceptional teachers, administrators, staff, parents and students. The school was a California School Recognition Program (CSRP) distinguished school honoree for 2014 and received an additional award for Exemplary Arts Education Program."

    "Why CACS is such an amazing school: the incredible and loving community, the service learning days where students go out in the community and help others, the camping trips where students and families bond in nature, the dynamic, creative, and hard working teachers, the innovative projects students create every day, the art, dance, music. and theater performances the community work on and display in a variety of ways, the dedicated administration, and the phenomenal art specialists. We love CACS and feel so lucky to be part of this beautiful community."

    "If you are seeking a small community where it feels and operates more like a family as opposed to a traditional school then this is the school for you! Every child, including my daughter, feel they are being educated by aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, grandmas and grandpas -- this is because every child/family is an integral part of the community. Creative Arts students are loved, respected, and looked after by every single staff member in the building. This is what I love about CACS and I am very grateful for. My daughter, who in the past, had a very difficult time with transitions and new situations, transitioned into Kindergarten seamlessly because she felt she was with family from the first day of school and felt that her individuality was a beautiful and an important addition to the school. I also admire that the every child at CACS feels freedom on a daily basis -- they are free to be themselves and encouraged to explore and work on their relationships with their peers, their teachers, their family, their neighborhood, and beyond. I can t imagine a better community for a child to grow and learn in."
