Head of School Welcome

Private Middle School ClassroomIt is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderful community of learners located in Westlake Village, California.  Carden Conejo School, a nonsectarian co-ed school, has been nurturing young minds since 1971.  From our energetic pre-school students through our confident middle-schoolers, our girls and boys thrive on the Carden Conejo experience of a challenging curriculum with skilled and dedicated teachers, on a safe and child-centered setting.  We believe in the uniqueness of each student and the nurturing of individual talents within a truly supportive environment.  Carden Conejo has been built on a proud tradition and continues to be a dynamic place for an outstanding education.

Primary School programs include half-day Pre-School, Monday through Friday for three-year-olds; and half-day Pre-Kindergarten, Monday through Friday, for four-year-olds.  We additionally offer the Junior Kindergarten program with an extended day and an enhanced curriculum for our “older” four year olds, not yet ready for Kindergarten,

The full-day Kindergarten program, offering space for up to 15 students with a teacher and an aide, is designed to ease children into academic work, while balancing their need for informal activity and play.

The Elementary school grades provide a structured and challenging academic curriculum in phonics, reading, writing, mathematics, science and the humanities, while maintaining a supportive and nurturing atmosphere.  In addition to their core academics, the curriculum also includes studies in French, Latin, Spanish, Computer Skills, Art, Music, and Physical Education.

If you are looking for the right fit for your child’s next learning environment, I encourage you to become informed about the advantages of a Carden Conejo education.  This web site will give you a glimpse of what Carden Conejo School is all about, yet it cannot fully capture the excitement, happiness, or nurturing atmosphere the students feel on campus.  We welcome your requests to come and visit our school.
