The Cardenas Elemantary School’s aim is to achieve the highest student achievement within the atmosphere of a safe, healthy and inviting learning environment. 

We do this by addressing the intellectual, social, physical and emotional needs of a child in a rigorous, challenging academic program with emphasis on creativity and the arts.

By taking full advantage of the middle school years, all students will have the chance to grow academically, physically and emotionally. 

Our goal is to prepare our students for the educational, social and technological changes present in our society. 

At the same time, we strive to develop new insights and new perceptions for our students that will enable them to meet the challenges of the present century.

Amongst its other educational endeavors, the Los Angeles Virtuosi Orchestra is currently partnering with the LA's BEST after-school enrichment program to offer violin instruction classes at the Andres and Maria Cardenas Elementary School in Van Nuys.

These violin instruction classes are taught by LAV musicians using instruments purchased with funds generated from LAV’s performances.
