We are one of nine Traditional academies in the Chandler Unified School District (CTA Independence, CTA Liberty, CTA Freedom, CTA Humphrey, CTA Goodman, CTA Patterson, CTA Carlson, CTA Weinberg and CTA Auxier). We are proud to offer a solid foundation of fundamental and higher level thinking skills primarily through direct instruction. Our Language Arts Curriculum utilizes the Spalding phonics program. We offer Saxon Mathematics as our math curriculum. Additionally, our math instruction is advanced by one grade level. We are also proud to offer special area classes such as library, music, physical education and technology. Our students are given the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular clubs or activities either before or after school. We have an active PTO, Dad's Club, Art Masterpiece, and many opportunities for parents and families to be involved in our terrific school!
