Welcome To MATES

Arts + Technology = Success!

The guiding principle that drives MATES is simple. We collectively believe that children deserve our best effort in providing a safe, stimulating, enriched learning environment where every child thrives. This includes a focus on academic excellence within the research-supported framework of the arts and technology, Project-Based Learning opportunities, strong teacher collaboration, high expectations of achievement in core content areas, and community involvement.

Teachers at MATES work collaboratively to develop a curriculum that incorporates arts and technology into all our California state standards. MATES staff and parents are involved in the design and operation of the school and give their time and energy to strengthen the culture of excellence. Every adult on campus believes in the MATES Philosophy of providing our best effort for all children. Come experience what many seek!
