Carden School of Fresno is a school of excellence. We are fortunate to have outstanding teachers and staff who love what they do, as well as a curriculum that guides and helps teach the student to learn in a comprehensive and in-depth manner. This is our ninth year at Carden, and I have see first-hand how the students thrive, on a daily basis, and truly love to learn. So much of this is due to the care, time and support that the teachers and staff devote to all students. The teaching method and curriculum, created by Mae Carden, builds a learning environment that stimulates and inspires the children, and also is instrumental in developing and strengthening strong character traits. The Carden Method is excellent in creating a strong foundation in spelling, reading, vocabulary, language and math, especially in the early elementary, foundational years.

Once the students enter middle school, their extensive vocabulary, language skills and strength in math allow them to excel in all subjects taught in middle school, such as Science, Speech and Debate, History, Latin and of course Math and Language Arts. Students are also fortunate to learn French, Music and Art, starting in Junior Kindergarten. These specialty subjects further enhance the broad and rich education offered at Carden School of Fresno. It has been a joy, honor and privilege for our children to attend Carden School of Fresno, and I know that the foundation they have received during their years at Carden will continue to benefit them throughout the rest of their academic and personal lives.
