Carden Arbor View School is an independent, non-profit, non-sectarian school located in Upland, California.
We believe that "teaching the whole child" is a must as we are preparing children not just for high school but for life.
To that end, Carden Arbor View School employs the teaching materials and methodologies of Miss Mae Carden.
We provide children with a strong foundation, preparing them for a lifetime of learning.
Our required academic program includes art, music, drama, foreign language, physical education, motor development, and computer education in addition to the basic core subjects.
Additionally, we thoughtfully weave Miss Carden's "3 r's", reason, respect, and responsibility, throughout the curriculum.
