Did you know that Leonardo Da Vinci was more than just an amazing artist and scientist? He was also an educator/philosopher. His guide to thinking aligns with current brain research into teaching and learning. Our Wildomar Da Vinci Academy (TK-8) provides a unique program of learning based on the 7 Da Vinci principles for creative thinking: Curiosity, Independent thinking, Sharpen your senses, Embrace ambiguity, Balance logic and imagination, Balance body and mind, and Make new connections.

Creative projects, core mastery and positive interpersonal skills are the focus of every grade. Core classroom days are offered 4 days per week with an optional 5th day.
