On September 9, 2022, our SBMS 8th grade students were featured on News Channel 3-12. Students helped the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade in their efforts to develop one of the largest humanitarian community gardens in the central coast. Experiential learning is at the core of the SBMS educational philosophy. This type of community service initiative is the perfect classroom for students to learn building and communication skills - all while giving back to the community.
Santa Barbara Middle School cultivates in our students passion for life and life-long learning, a deep sense of trust in themselves, strength and courage to succeed at life's challenges, and compassion and respect for others.
