School Profile

McKinley Elementary School, spectacularly situated overlooking the Santa Barbara coast, was refurbished and reopened in September 1986. The school, built in 1932, was the focal point for the Santa Barbara mesa for many years and now serves the lower westside of the city. We envision all students as thriving citizens, successfully integrated into their communities and possessing skills needed to access unlimited opportunities in the 21st Century.
