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,

Welcome to March! Spring is in the air, and we are excited to begin showing what our students know and can do with state testing rapidly approaching!

AzMERIT statewide assessment for grades 3-6 and AIMS science testing for fourth grade begin this month. Fourth graders will take the AIMS science test on Thursday, March 23 and 3rd-6th grades begin AzMERIT on March 27. Testing will continue through Tuesday, April 25. We want our students to be successful, and the information we receive from state testing provides our staff with feedback on student mastery and success with the state standards. We will be sending out a specific testing schedule following spring break. Please take the time to review the testing schedule once you receive it. We ask that you make sure your child is at school on time  for their testing date and that you ensure they have had a good night's rest and a healthy breakfast. We will provide absent students with an opportunity to make up the testing sessions they miss. We are looking forward to our students showing their Knight Pride and continue to lead Pinal County in our Tradition of Excellence with Rigor, Responsibility, Respect!

Spring break is the week of March 13-17, with a PD day for teachers on Monday, March 20. J.O. Combs Unified School District will be hosting a job fair on Tuesday, March 21 at Combs High School. We will have our final battle of the books on Tuesday, March 21, and our third quarter recognition assemblies will take place on Friday, March 24.

We are currently enrolling for the 2017-2018 school year and have openings at all grade levels. Please share the good news about Combs Traditional Academy with your family and friends and have them call our front office for a school tour today!

Thank you for your support of the school and students at Combs Traditional Academy! You are an integral part of our success and we appreciate all that you do!

 Sincerely,


Marcus Berkshire
Principal
