The school is simply extraordinary! The integration of both arts and academics truly makes for an enriched and rigorous education/curriculum. In addition, the school administration, staff, and students are all extremely accepting and are constantly looking to improve upon themselves. I could not ask for a better experience!

As a senior at Cab, I've been here for almost 7 years, all of which were amazing. I've met friends for life, and learned from super supportive teachers, all under one really accepting roof. I've been asked countless times about the school by prospective parents or students, and every single time I say they should apply. I blossomed at Cab, and it's a family I know I'll have forever. If you don't know if you should apply, just try!
Cab is an amazing school with dedicated, passionate teachers who blend the arts and academics into their lessons every day. Because the kids have to go through an audition process to get in, they take a lot of pride in being a "Cabbie" and hold themselves to high standards of behavior and academics. My kids enjoy going to school every day and feel safe there. Cannot say enough good things about this school!
