Your child is important.
We are a school where children are cared for and challenged rather than get lost in the crowd.
Our goal is to develop students academically, artistically, and socially with a curriculum that integrates both the performing arts and college-preparatory academics.

What parents are saying
I have nothing but appreciation for the whole staff. My daughter feels very safe here and that means the world to me.
The principal is amazing. There is such unity here and it filters through to the children and to their attitude, and to their ability to learn.
“We have a school that is two and a half minutes from our house, but we drive from Corona and we come twenty-two minutes to get here to this school-- each way.”
Truly thankful to have a unique school in our city. We've joined since day one. Amazing curriculum.

Minimum Day - FridayMINIMUM DAYS HAVE BEEN MOVED TO FRIDAYS
Because our students missed a third of the school year, we're going to be doing something we call Friday Intensives.
That means that we're going to be doing small group instructions starting with attendance and Pledge of Allegiance at 8:00 AM. Then, at 8:30, students will begin their independent work while parents who need the extra help can attend Parent University during the same time.
