Marin Montessori School is a private, non-profit, AMI accredited school serving the diverse needs of children 18 months to 15 years of age.
The school is a community of faculty, families, staff, administration, and a board of directors.
Collectively, we nurture the development of each child to his or her fullest potential – intellectually, physically, socially, creatively, emotionally, and spiritually.
Therefore, we strive to provide more than an academic education alone; our goal is to provide education for life.
The mission of Marin Montessori School, in adherence to the principles of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) as envisioned by Dr. Maria Montessori, is to nurture the development of each child in our diverse community to his or her fullest potential – an independent, responsible, compassionate learned individual who thinks critically and realizes clearly his or her role in the world.
Thus, our mission is to provide education for life.
