Our close and welcoming community is one of the most incredible aspects of SBMS and we invite you to get to know us! We will be offering tours, Q&A sessions with our admissions team and Head of School, Open Houses, and so much more so that you walk away with a strong sense of Santa Barbara Middle School. To make sure you are receiving up-to-date information on our admissions events, please fill out our request information form (if you have not done so already) so that you receive announcements and invitations via email. For now, we invite you to explore our Diamond Curriculum through our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions at admissions@sbms.org.
