Academics and the Arts

Our strong academic program includes science, social studies, and Spanish as well as an excellent language arts and math program. While attaining a high level of proficiency, students also develop good study habits and strong critical thinking skills.

The arts are an important part of the Santa Cruz Children’s School experience. Singing begins in Kindergarten and never stops. Instrumental music is introduced through the recorder and continues with clarinet, flute, saxophone, oboe, violin and more. Students put on a full musical theater production every other year.

Students create art through painting, drawing, collage, weaving and so much more. Art is integrated into math, science, history and creative writing. Creative expression blossoms into dramatic presentations, video productions, dance, and music.
