    "Teachers are very dedicated and administration is devoted but the socioeconomic situation here is daunting. If you don't drive a black luxury car or take fancy vacations continents away and your child does not dress impeccably you and/or your child is bound to feel left out. There is very little diversity here, but the academics are commendable."

    "Awful, just awful! The new admin, not to mention the majority of parents, are a bunch of elitist, entitled dimwits. If you are a shallow trophy wife, with a penchant for gossip & drama, this is the place for you. If, however, you would prefer to place your child where there is kindness coupled with innate intelligence, I highly recommend Cold Springs School as a much healthier environment."

    "This is the best school any parent could possibly send there child too. Outstanding students, teachers, staff and parents. This is better than the private schools I have interviewed."

    "We looked at so many schools in the area and feel so fortunate to have chosen Montecito Union. We have state of the art facilites including a fabulous computer lab, science lab, and fabulous art room complete with a kiln. Our after school enrichment programs span from great sports programs to unique foreign languages such as Chinese and Japanese. The teachers and specialists are the top in their field. We are fortunate to not be affected by the cutbacks that many of the California schools face and our classroom sizes remain smaller than even private schools. The community is equally warm and dynamic. We couldn't be happier with our choice..."

    "Montecito Union School (MUS) is simply the best school in Santa Barbara County without question. It has the most resources of any school in the area, and probably in the nation. In addition to the academics, MUS strives to offer a well rounded education by including foreign languages, exceptional art and drama program, as well as ongoing education for the parents. Most families attending the school are able to afford private school tuition, however, they have chosen MUS because most elementary schools, both private and public, cannot get any better than this one. Don't take my word for it, go ahead and visit the school and see for yourself. Our motto: 'Together We Are Better'."
