Principal's Message

“Welcome students and families.  We are glad that you have chosen to be, or are interested in becoming, part of the Cultural Academy for the Arts and Sciences Family. The statement that one of our students wrote on a mural that he created sums it up best. 'Every kid comes to school to find things that interest them. This school gives students the chance to explore new possibilities.' At Cultural Academy for the Arts and Sciences (CAAS) we have a wealth of programs, both during and after school, designed to tap into students’ creativity and to provide personalized learning opportunities and supports. We endeavor to inspire students to discover who they are as they develop skills and acquire knowledge that will enable them to excel in our always evolving global economy. I am honored to partner with you and our entire CAAS community to ensure that your child or children succeed." - Sanatha Alexis, Principal
