One of the first public charter schools in the state of California, NCSA serves a diverse population of over 400 K-8 students, offering foundational and curriculum-integrated arts instruction, as well as music, dance, theater, film and other electives. Unlike most traditional public schools, NCSA must pay to rent facilities, and thus relies on fundraisers such as A Matter of Taste to fund its highly enriched curriculum.
