The resources and programs in this school are exceptional. The student teacher ratio great. It can compete with the top notch private schools, but is still a free public school.

Cold Spring is at the top of the class. It's teachers are experienced but still relatively young on the whole. It 's music program is exceptional. It has a parent club.

Cold Spring is an incredible school. My daughter has been going since kindergarten and loves it. She recieves extra help whenever needed and the parent involvement is very strong. It is why people come to Montecito. Both MUS and COld Spring have great teachers and a positive learning environment.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
