Santa Barbara Middle School

Santa Barbara Middle School, studentsFounded in 1976, Santa Barbara Middle School is the only accredited, stand-alone middle school for grades 6–9 in California. Through our students’ immersion in stimulating Academics, Creative Arts and Sports, Community, Career Studies and our acclaimed Outdoor Education Program, we prepare students for their future by providing a defining educational experience. Our community is based on mutual respect, teamwork, compassion, gratitude, and a unique understanding of the adolescent years. SBMS was created specifically to serve this age group; we value it, nurture it and delight in it wholeheartedly! Few adults remember junior high as an affirming high point in their lives; our alumni do.

SBMS graduates are admired for their intellectual curiosity, academic excellence, creativity, and "can-do" confidence. Our motivated graduates excel in the GATE/Honors and AP programs in high school and go on to attend the finest universities across the country and abroad.
