Hello, my name is Claudia Caudill, Principal of Montalvo Arts Academy.  It gives me great pleasure to represent and respond to our students, staff, families, and community in my role. I have been leading and learning at Montalvo for 7 years, and I believe strongly in its excellence. You know you are at Montalvo when you see students represented in the curriculum, at the core of decision-making, and in the heart of all we do.  

You also see staff passionate about making a difference in the lives of students. We all believe students can and will learn and thrive as we live out our commitment to data-driven collaboration, the implementation of best practices, and integration of The Arts. 

Our school has been serving students since 1898, in 2011 we received a CABE Bilingual School of Excellence award, and several of our teachers have been recognized and awarded for their outstanding work.  We are a VUSD School of Choice and a choice neighborhood school for generations of Ventura and Montalvo residents.
