Capistrano Elementary School provides learning opportunities for students through rich instructional programs. We offer an integrated approach to learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM), Reading and Math framework, third through fifth grade one to one laptops, dual language program, 25 book campaign, art, band, and orchestra.Our extra-curricular activities include cheerleading, drama club, and student council.
