Saturday, July 27th
Located at 1525 Santa Barbara Street, the Knox School will be housed in classrooms on the campus of the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, which sits directly across from the lovely Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens. Gardens surround the campus buildings, and our classrooms look out onto the landscaped Jefferson Courtyard to the front and the amphitheater to the rear. Behind the classrooms is a small garden where students will incorporate designing and planting into their studies.
The School lies across the street from one of the city’s most beautiful spots often called the “crown jewel” of city parks. Alice Keck Park Gardens feature a large botanical collection (75 different tree and plant species), a pond with koi and turtles, a sensory garden, a low water-using demonstration garden, picnic areas and gazebo. A block away is Alameda Park, the home of Kids’ World, an 8,000 square foot playground designed by children in consultation with playground experts containing a castle, swings and slides. These large parks are a perfect venue for hands-on learning, physical exercise, and exploration.
Please join us for light refreshments at our Open House and view the facilities, meet the exceptional Faculty and Specialists, and see the curriculum. We encourage you to bring the children!
The Knox School is thrilled to begin our inaugural year in such beautiful surroundings and such an inspiring and supportive atmosphere and we look forward to welcoming you to our new location!
