Welcome to La Patera!


We are proud to be part of the Goleta Union School District. Our school’s mission is to provide excellent learning opportunities for ALL students to reach their greatest potential in a diverse world. The La Patera staff is committed to providing ALL of our students with a school experience that is engaging, meaningful, and positive. We are dedicated to working as a collaborative team to create the best possible learning environment for ALL of our students.


At La Patera we strive to offer instruction that supports the development of 21st century skills, provides a strong academic knowledge base, enhances social emotional wellbeing and self-esteem, and prepares ALL of our students to be lifelong learners. We are a strong community of students, staff, and parents/guardians and we recognize the vital role each one plays in the education of our children. We encourage ALL families to get involved and take an active part in school activities. As a partner in education, we welcome, encourage, and value your questions and input, so please reach out with your questions or concerns. Go Tigers!
