A Word

From Our Principal

Dear Parents and Community Members,

Cold Spring School continues to be ranked as a top 100 school in the State of California for its Academic Excellence in Education!ย  Itโ€™s our outstanding teachers and staff, parents and community partnerships who work together to provide an outstanding learning environment are what make Cold Spring School truly special!ย ย 

Cold Spring School has created a learning environment that encourages self-discovery with multiple hands-on learning opportunities. ย  The committed teachers and staff are constantly striving to identify and support each childโ€™s Passion by offering a comprehensive core program that incorporates Art, Physical Education, Music and Theatre, Technology and Design/Engineering.

Together, we are working to ensure every student leaves sixth grade with a desire to โ€œmake a differenceโ€ by following their Passion. We empower every student by encouraging him or her to think differently about the world we live in through these comprehensive enrichment programs.

These enrichment programs would not be available without the financial support and involvement of the parents and the community as all of these enrichment programs are supported by parent and community contributions made through the Cold Spring School Foundation.

I am thankful to be leading a community that believes we can make the world a better place by supporting the creativity and innovation inside each one of our children. ย Thank you for your continued support!

– Dr. Amy Alzina

I look forward to leading the Foundation for the 2021-22 school year!

While our school works to maintain our high educational standards in a COVID-19 world, we at the Foundation have the important role of raising funds to help keep Cold Spring School strong.ย

Since 2014, my husband Justin and I have been lucky to call Montecito home! We are grateful for the wonderful friends we have met in our community and are inspired by the philantrophic culture here in Santa Barbara. We feel fortunate that our children have the opportunity to learn and grow at Cold Spring Elementary School. The teachers, staff, and students give vibrancy to our town as our public school is the anchor of our community. Our two daughters, Scarlett (3rd) and Vivian (1st) thrive in this environment that encourages self-discovery, positive thinking, creativity and innovation.

For over 40 years, the Cold Spring School Foundation has helped keep Cold Spring School strong. Private donations play a vital role in keeping Cold Spring School one of the best public schools in the state of California. I look forward to giving our community members and friends the opportunity to financially support us in our efforts to ensure every student has a bright future.
