La Cumbre Junior High School 5

The Core Knowledge program here is unquestionably the best public junior high school experience available in Santa Barbara. Passionate teachers offer an academically challenging, content-rich curriculum. But even better---the school as a whole, in and out of the Core Knowledge program, has a wonderful sense of community. Physically, the cleanest school in all of SB--the floors sparkle!

Best junior high in the Santa Barbara area by far, both in the way the school is run and in test scores. Kids are engaged and challenged--my son loved it and learned so much! Definitely try the Core Knowledge program.

La Cumbre, is such a great school, and all the teachers are nice and great at teaching us! This school offers us so many options and programs, and we know we are going to do good on the SAT's this year, and maybe one day we will beat Locolina's scores!

We are very pleased with the seventh grade GATE program. La Cumbre has the highest CST-Algebra I scores in the district. Probably one of the most beautiful school buildings in California.
