School Official Point of View

The vision of Cambridge Academy East is an excelling, achievement-oriented environment where children in grades K-8 learn, master, and eventually apply foundational skills in a sequence that logically builds from the most basic elementary content to increasingly higher order conceptual thinking. We are a school committed to the family, embracing the notion that the school is an extension of the home, and therefore we must work together to achieve success. It is our belief that all children have the ability to achieve greatness and become the person they dream of being. At Cambridge Academy East, we provide a rigorous and Arizona State Standards aligned curriculum, disciplined environment where our students are academically and socially prepared to excel in demanding college preparatory schools.

This is my sons 3rd year at Cambridge and he loves it. The school grounds are very nice with grass and large playground equipment. They offer a lot of extracurricular activities during and after school. The teachers and staff are all top notch. And most importantly, I know my son is getting a well rounded, solid education! I love that they don't just teach to the test! They teach in very engaging ways that will last throughout the child's lifetime!

Amount of homework: Just right

Not too much, and not too little. Homework is given only to reinforce the skills learned in class and not as a substitute or filler for lacking in class instruction.

They follow the T.R.A..C.K.S. therefore, respect is a top priority. Respect yourself, and those around you.

I often hear the teachers refer to the students as "My kids", and I believe they mean it literally and figuratively. They care for them as if they were their own.

Unlike the many schools that use character traits as a guide, Cambridge follows the simple rules of life that they refer to as T.R.A.C.K.S. Every class has the same guidelines - Trust, Respect, Accountability, Cooperation, Kindness, Safety.

Sending my children to Cambridge Academy was the best decision I could have made. I have seen my son grow from a shy and timid kindergartener to a confident and compassionate 6th grader. My daughter is currently in 1st grade and she absolutely loves it. Everyone at the school is very approachable and there truly is a sense of community. There are many fun activities, the classes are small, and, from what I’ve seen, discipline issues are minimal. This school focuses on raising good people, not just on achieving high scores.

My boys have been attending since kindergarten and it has been an amazing experience! The classes are smaller with teachers that are well rounded, highly qualified (some with masters degress) and can actually spend time teaching your child. They are incredibly dedicated and genuinely care for your child' total well being. My children learn there because it is fun and natural for them in this schools positive environment.
