Welcome to Combs Traditional Academy

Free Kindergarten

Daily Schedule 2015-2016We’re one of five elementary schools in the J.O. Combs Unified School District, located in the warm and beautiful San Tan Valley of Arizona. You’ll find our school conveniently located at the southeast corner of Combs & Gantzel Roads. We proudly serve students in kindergarten through 6th grade.

What makes us unique is our “Back-to-Basics” philosophy. Here at Combs Traditional Academy we develop a solid foundation of fundamental and higher-level thinking skills through a structured curriculum that is consistent and sequential throughout grade levels. We deliver curriculum using direct teaching techniques, whole class instruction, and other approved teaching methods. We also plan our teaching and learning around textbooks and written assignments and do not interrupt classes for non-curricular programs or activities.

Browse our website to find out more about who we are and our educational philosophy. If you feel your child would benefit from what we have to offer, don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting you!

What people are saying about Combs Traditional Academy

  • I absolutely love CTA! - Involved teaching staff- my son's teacher is always open and available for quick meetings and takes the time to provide attention to each individual's needs. 
     
  • I am so proud of how my son is doing at this school. He has always struggled with confidence and his teacher is always so helpful finding ways that will help him succeed. 
     
  • This school is one of a very limited number of schools in the state of Arizona that has one of the best top notch educations and teaching for AZ. The teachers not only care but they also want your kid to succeed. The school has a small enrollment, which makes the learning even more fun and challenging.

A Message from our Principal

Dear Knights,

AzMERIT testing is in full swing at Combs Traditional Academy, and we are excited to continue to show why we are the top rated school in San Tan Valley! Thank you for all you do to ensure your children are prepared and ready to go each day. Testing will continue through April 25, followed by field days on April 26 and 27 to celebrate being finished with testing. We are also excited to cheer on our Battle of the Books champion team of Samantha Bourland, Ella Rosales, and Jessica Valdez as they compete in the district Battle of the Books on April 25. 

On May 2, our PTO will be holding their final meeting of the year. The focus of the meeting will be on electing officers for the upcoming school year. Being an officer on PTO is a wonderful way for you to be involved in the school, and I encourage you to consider nominating someone for one of the open positions. You should be receiving information about the elections and open positions soon. 

We are currently accepting registrations for the upcoming school year. Please share the good news about Combs Traditional Academy with your family and friends! We would love to have them visit us for a school tour so we can share the great things going on here at Combs Traditional Academy. Thank you for all you do.

 Sincerely,


Marcus Berkshire
Principal
