The only elementary school in Santa Barbara area to offer the IB program, Harding is amazing! They are more than prepared for the Common Core thanks to the IB, inquiry-based instruction that has been occurring there for at least 4 years. My child attends Harding, and we are so happy. She loves her teachers and classmates, is challenged academically, and truly loves learning! Thank you Harding!! I can't recommend this school enough!
My child's school is awesome. It's amazing to see the collaborative effort when parents, teachers and principal come together to educate not only the children but the parents as well. My child teaches me new and exciting things he learns everyday. I love Harding!!!
I just recently enrolled my 3rd grader and Im very happy I did. The office staff , class teacher and the principle made us feel comfortable.
This is the best school in the entire world!!!!!!!!! i am so happy to have been there since preschool and it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My two nephews go there and they love it. They say their teachers are awesome and they look forward to going everyday. That to me speaks wonders.
The teachers are wonderful, and so is the principal, but I feel like the entire school is aiming way too low. The test scores reflect that. Not having much money, and not speaking English fluently is no excuse. Other schools in the area have 40% and above of English learners and they can still pass state tests. I also feel like this school lacks discipline and consequences for the students, and the staff speak very condescending to parents.
This school is by far one of the best I have ever sent my children to.
I went to Harding School, I now have a son that is attending kindegarden there. I have to say that Harding just is NOT the same!
Harding School has teachers who really try hard to educate their students. I was a volunteer working with students there who had a number of problems but by the end of the semester, they were back on track.
It's a true neighborhood school that does a great job in the face of very challenging circumstances.
My grand children just love it here, they are learning so much. The teachers are wonderful and they truly enjoy the children.
