Creative Arts Charter School

Our public charter school is focused on using the arts, including visual, music, dance and theater. We aim to teach all subjects in our K-8 school through project-based methods with arts-integration. Our school was founded by parents in 1994, and it is one of the oldest charter schools in California. It is a high-perfoming non-profit school with a highly diverse group of students. We use ideas adapted from studies including Harvard's Project Zero with regard to arts integration.

We want to change for the better the lives of those students who attend and, beyond our own campuses, contribute to the cause of education on every continent.

Una escuela de colores México

Una escuela de colores aims to connect with food to children and adults in a positive way. We believe that the game is one of the essential tools for the educational process, that is why we work from a vision where self discovery, free play, philosophy for children, attentive listening are fundamental for the development of our programs. Biodiversity is a fundamental part of our program. Mexico has very serious health problems and also has a great opportunity from our identity and gastronomy that we seek to rescue and show to the new generation.


We have bought a land in the South of France. Our 3 children will be giving permaculture classes to visiting families and online.
