Santa Barbara Montessori School, 7421 Mirano Drive, has had a number of promotions and graduations as the school marks its 33rd year.

The school’s primary objective is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment that will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. The school’s AMI-trained teachers attend and contribute to seminars, workshops, and national and international conferences to maintain and continuously develop their own understanding of the needs of children and how Montessori education better prepares them for their, and our, future.
