New School Opens for Gifted Kids


A private school for gifted and talented students opened its doors 9/3. Located at the Unitarian Society on Santa Barbara Street, the Knox School of Santa Barbara enrolled its first five students and is taking applications for more. Founder Angela Tanner was inspired both by her experience as a cognitive neuroscientist and by advocating for her own school-aged children. She will seek accreditation by the California Association of Independent Schools. “The main focus for this year was in developing a stellar curriculum and finding amazing faculty,” said Tanner.
