During this part of the school day, students utilize the Engineering design process to create solutions to real world issues. Our focus on the arts (visual, social, language, physical) will be integrated into our daily instruction and specialized fine arts classes.Beginining with the 2017-2018 school year, Capistrano Elementary School was awarded a grant for training to implement Blended Learning.
