    "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"

    "We do not recommend anyone we know of send their kids to this school! Like most other parents, we originally heard some positive things about this school such as its high academic performance and small sized class. We also heard that this school is snobby from a parent who took their child out of this school. These are all correct. We also found out that in one year the school's enrollment went from more than 70 down to 50. It was true that the 6th grade was terminated that year, but it was also true that there were only 3 six graders in Summerland School at that time. WHY were people leaving? What we learned about this school is as follows: 1.) There is a high pressured push for academic performance for its external PR purposes regardless of student's readiness. 2.) The principle does not return phone calls for weeks if you are not her type of parents. 3.) Awards are frequently given to students whose parents are financial sponsors of the school. We hope children can go to a school where kids are supported and nurtured, and equally treated. Mostly their curiosity is encouraged as the motivation for their success, not just some score report for elementary students!"

    "I do not understand why Summerland School is not considered part of Carpinteria Unified School! I searched for Carpinteria Unified School and I couldn't see it. Summerland School countinually earn the highest academic ranking in Santa Barbara County; and Summerland School is among the top 5% of California Distinguished Schools in The State .Summerland ranked # 1 in Santa Barbara County to this date. Please give Summerland School credit!"
