At Marin Primary & Middle School we make education meaningful, while encouraging pride in self, respect for others, and enthusiasm for learning.
We honor and enjoy children's natural curiosity, competence and exuberance.
Using teams of teachers and educational methods tailored to how children learn best, we connect with our students, build trusting relationships and make learning relevant, memorable and fun.
Asking not "how smart is the child" but "how is the child smart," we guide our students to see their full potential, and we equip them to pursue it with passion and purpose.
We value academic excellence, personal integrity and community action, and encourage our students to become informed, engaged and ethical global citizens.
