About This School

Creative Connections Arts Academy is located in North Highlands, CA and is one of 56 schools in Twin Rivers Unified School District. It is a charter school that serves 468 students in grades K-8.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Creative Connections Arts Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Creative Connections Arts Academy Reviews

By a Former Student on

this is a great school for the grades of k-5(elementary school). but the junior high and highschool campus is terrible. the teachers are rude. there is almost no challenge,and there are not as many offers as there could be in a public school. i would recommend the elementary school. but not the junior high or high school.

By a Parent on

My children go to this school and I am very pleased that they are getting an arts education along with a solid academic education as well.
