Topanga Mountain School

Tel: (818)346-8355
Topanga Mountain School is a small private middle school for grades 6,7,8 located in Woodland Hills at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains.
TMS was founded in 2001 to serve the nearby community of Topanga and has since expanded to include families from neighboring communities.
At TMS we believe that a school is not only responsible for a child's academic growth but is in a partnership with the child's family in helping both spiritual and emotional development.
The aim of TMS is to endow the student with a sense of personal responsiblity and motivation.
