    "Summerland School has been such a huge blessing for our family. We had always imagined that our kid would go to Family School until we learned that there was a lottery, and our kid did not get in. In retrospect, we feel so lucky that we ended up at Summerland School. Summerland is like a charter school with a very active gardening, art, music, theater and PE program. The teachers are very passionate about teaching and instill such a love for learning in our kids. Our kid just loves to act out the water cycle! The K-1 class begins each day with a community circle, where the kids greet each other in different languages, sing songs and do many other exciting activities. The result is that all 20 kids in the K-1 class have so much love for each other. They come from many different backgrounds, but they are like a tribe, and so are the families. Parents linger around after school, so there is a great sense of community, and many of them are very active in the parent organization. There are regular K-1 play dates in the park. Most importantly, our kid is on fire and cannot wait to go to school each day!"

    "Summerland School is definitely one of the best-kept secrets for families in Summerland and Carpinteria. It s a public school but with such a private school feel. It has a very vibrant gardening, music, art and theater program. The teachers are absolutely amazing. They care so deeply about their students and really know how to make learning fun and interesting. This place has so much heart (and it doesn t hurt that it s only a block away from the ocean). Our kid loves it here (and can t wait to go to school every day), and we love it, too, as well as the wonderful sense of community it provides. We re so glad we found our way to Summerland. We couldn t be happier."

    "Our son is excelling at Summerland Elementary. He loves school. He is bummed when he has no school. Summerland is a small school, only a handful of students in 1st grade. Our son is far beyond his grade level in all aspects. Thank You to the Teachers,, Staff, and involved Parents. I may not be the most involved Parent...But I recognize the important foundation my son (and younger son eventually) is getting to develop good study habits, strength in friendly academic competition, challenging assignments with reward incentives, and the list goes on. The teachers care. The students care. And Each student looks after the other students to achieve their goals. It is amazing...and I was an early skeptic."

    "As an involved parent at Summerland School, I am horrified by the review of another's perception on May 8th about ours being a "horrible" school... and I disagree wholeheartedly. I see our AMAZING CHILDREN growing, learning, thriving in small classroom environments. I see incredible teachers with undaunting drives to educate and understand each child. I see a new principle with an eagle eye for details and a heart full of compassion. And I see passionate parents who care deeply about their children in our little Summerland School by raising enough money each year to pay for teachers aids in each classroom, a P.E. teacher so ALL the kids can get some phyical education a couple of times per week, plus separate arts and music teachers to round out their cirriculum.. .and more! When I look at Summerland School, I see happy children and a lot of HEART. I'm thrilled my kids are a big part of such a small environment for elementary school; and I'm proud to be part of the school by involving myself and my family in it's sucesses."

    "We totally agree to this parent's review on June 9th, 2009. This school can make a parent or his child wrong if they have a different opinion from the principle. But here are two parents have the same opinion on this school and its leadership: "This school is a horrible school. They claim to care for the children when in fact they do not. Tricia Price is not a welcoming person and makes it very hard to approach her. We tried for over a month to get in contact with her and she never returned our calls. Finally, we had to go to the other school (Aliso) to speak with her. " Submitted by a parent"
