Carden School of Sacramento is situated on a lovely estate featuring spacious, garden-like grounds and towering trees.
The several buildings create a warm, intimate atmosphere with small classrooms, outdoor play grounds, additional play areas, an outdoor performing arts stage and a blacktop area for special events and games.
The basic purpose of the school is to foster in each student the desire to learn.
We believe that self-confidence and self-reliance can be developed in a child's character by careful teaching of the key subjects.
Once equipped with a solid foundation of learning skills and basic knowledge, each child will be enabled to reach logical conclusions and to proceed with confidence and pleasure throughout a lifetime of learning.

School Reviews

Carden is an outstanding school. My son age 6 loves school even though it is academically challenging -- they are starting fractions in kindergarten. They have music, art and French, PE in addition to a focus on the fundamentals. My son can read (not site words) but from a book because they teach reading not memorization. He can add up to double simple carrying and subtract up to 10. It's a little expensive for us because we don't need the after school care which is included in the tuition. Our son generally stays though because it is like the old neighborhood play ground, an experience most of our kids don't get anymore.
