We are an independent, coeducational day school for grades 6-9.

SBMS was founded in 1976 by a group of students, parents, and teachers concerned about the junior high years. This group, many of whom are still involved, sought to create a school that would combine an innovative, challenging academic program with an environment responsive to the many needs of adolescent students.

For over 35 years Santa Barbara Middle School has worked to fulfill and exceed these goals. Enrollment in our dynamic student body is limited to the middle grades, our specialty.

We are located at 1321 Alameda Padre Serra, Santa Barbara, CA 93103, and can be reached by phone at 805-682-2989. See About Our School for more!

Open House: Thank You for Visiting

For those who attended our Open House, here is the link from John's presentation, showing what some of the Teen Press's interviewees have to say about what we call the Four Sides of the DIamond.

Welcome Visitors

DIAMOND DAYS

Diamond Days are upon us! Come find out what you need to know about starting at SBMS on August 27 and August 28, 3-5 pm.

We ask that all new families (at least 1 parent and SBMS student) attend Diamond Days. The event will be held in an “open house” style, so please stop by between 3-5 pm on August 27 or August 28. You do not need to bring your student’s bike to Diamond Day. If you would like to bring the bike, our bike specialists will be there to answer specific questions and help with bike fitting.
