The Santa Barbara Unified School District’s philosophy is that all students will reach their full potential through programs designed to meet their needs. The Advanced Learning Programs are designed to meet the needs of those students who demonstrate exceptional intellectual capability, and have been identified as gifted and/or greatly exceed grade level expectations. Through differentiated instruction, advanced learning students have equal access to the core curriculum and opportunities to not only meet, but to exceed grade level standards.
