Welcome to the Lower School

The Montecito campus at Laguna Blanca School is a very special place for children in Early Kindergarten to fourth grade to learn, and it is designed purposefully for the elementary-aged student. Centered on the values of scholarship, character, balance, and community, learning here is both engaging and transformative.

These important Lower School years are the beginning of your child’s educational journey, planting the seeds for learning, creative exploration, and community involvement. We are dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities for our students while expanding every child’s curiosity for and understanding of the world around them. Our high academic expectations and passionate and talented teachers will challenge your child in a supportive and safe environment with opportunities to learn and grow in many different and meaningful ways.

We hope you will give your child the opportunity to nurture the seed for learning by beginning his or her academic journey at Laguna Blanca School.
