- "There`s something special about an ELMO kid."It`s something so deeply rooted that you can still see it decades later. At the core is a strong, pervasive faith and personal character. Character that cannot be taught only molded over time. Investing in a Christian school education which provides discipleship raises up students of faith, integrity, humility and compassion who are ready to make an impact inside and outside the classroom.
- At El Montecito School we are a family. A love for one another and a prayerful, intentional obedience to God knits student, teacher and parents together. With thanksgiving, we worship, pray, serve, and learn. With joy, we equip students to lead lives of faithful service to God.
- El Montecito School students love to learn. There`s a lasting curiosity and respect for others that spills over. Teachers come alongside students as they explore, question and wonder about the world and develop a biblical worldview. El Montecito develops students with a love for learning in a private school environment. We are located in the San Roque neighborhood of Santa Barbara.
