Garden

Located at the back of the campus, the garden provides students an opportunity to put their life science education into action. The garden was built by a partnership between Campbell Union School District and various community volunteer teams who believed in the importance of education outside the four classroom walls. Students and staff grow everything from tomatoes and zucchinis to basil and sunflowers, watching plants take root in the raised beds.

Gifted & Talented Education

Gifted and Talented Education refers to students who have been identified as being gifted, or having a high capacity for learning and abstract thinking and reasoning. All second graders in CUSD take a non-verbal test in order to be screened for GATE identification. Once children are identified as being gifted, our teachers meet their needs through differentiated classroom instruction.

Grade Levels

New ideas. New concepts. New skills.

Elementary school is where students begin to explore core subjects and discover new interests and skills that they may develop later in middle school. Our teachers provide strong core academic instruction through their broad knowledge of the subject matter, standards-based curriculum, and creative lesson design.
