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,

We want to wish you a happy new year! With 2017 officially here and the start of third quarter, we have much to look forward to over the coming months!

Registration for the 2017-18 school year officially kicks off on February 9 with our kindergarten roundup. We will gladly accept registrations earlier, but please let your friends and families know about our roundup. They can contact our front office for more information. We have already gotten inquiries for the upcoming school year, but there’s still plenty of space available for new enrollment!

Our spelling bee is on January 13, with the top three finishers moving on to the district bee on January 23. Our next battle of the books is coming up on January 20. Fourth-sixth graders will begin work on their investigation/invention projects, and the top projects will be on display at the SciTech festival on February 16.

Field trips have begun, with fourth and fifth graders attending BizTown on January 9, second graders going to Casa Grande National Monument on January 26, and first graders going to the Natural History Museum in February. The other grades are currently determining their field trips and more will be coming on those shortly!

Academically, we are gearing up for AzMERIT and AIMS Science, so keep encouraging your children to show rigor, responsibility, and respect! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday break! Thank you for making Combs Traditional Academy your school of choice! Don’t forget to put out the good word on our school in social media and on Great Schools!

 

 Sincerely,


Marcus Berkshire
Principal
