This is a great school with great teacher's. My nephew's and son are at McKinley and we have always had a good teacher. Now we have a good relationship with the new principal. The 1st grade class is currently doing 2nd to 3rd grade work. The teacher makes sure all the kids are on top of it. GREAT SCHOOL!

I would like to thank Mrs. Julie Guajardo - preschool teacher. Mrs. Julie, Mrs. Maria and Mrs Lili-Beth are all wonderful. I have never seen teachers care for the kids as much as they do. They make learning fun, interesting and make sure all kids are involved with everything. My kids have learned so much from this preschool. I can't wait to have my 2 other boys join her class this coming up year and future years. I also have to thank Mrs. Candelaria. She is a grandma that keeps coming back every year to help the class because she loves it. Mrs. Candelaria no longer has a grandchild that attends the class but she is part of Mrs. Julie's team. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL! Thank You to all the Teachers and the new principle as well! Best Emma Arroyo

Set in a nice old building near downtown Santa Barbara. The racial mix is a concern however. More representative mix needed.

Both my kids love this school. My son has always been an advanced students since he started here in kindergarten and wishes they'd challenge him more. My daughter wishes the teachers had more one on one time, she learns quicker this way. They both feel there's not enough music and art.
