Our Vision for Student Success       

Santa Maria-Bonita is committed to preparing successful citizens who are college and career ready.  To achieve this level of readiness, every student will learn at grade level and beyond through effective Tier 1 practices.  We have a deliberate, intentional culture of learning with high expectations where every day, every educator, every staff member, and every student seeks to learn and strives for growth.  We support and challenge each other to stay focused on what matters most:  ensuring that in every classroom our students are tackling relevant, challenging content, taking ownership for their learning and improving every day.
