School Highlights

Adams Elementary School enjoys a modern campus on a ten-acre site, situated in Santa Barbara’s northside. It is located between the community golf course and the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Adams School opened in 1954.

Teachers and staff provide a challenging academic program for all students, with additional support in English language development, speech, vocal and instrumental music, art, library, computer literacy, Gifted and Talented Education, and special education.

Adams Elementary School students performed well on the state-mandated Sanford Achievement Test. An improvement plan has been designed with the goal of improving overall student performance five percentile points a year for the next five years. In addition, extra efforts will be made to bring up 15% of our lowest scoring segment of students to grade level performance standards. A process of continuous monitoring of student performance and progress will inform and direct teachers and support staff efforts toward yearly improved student achievement.
