Saint Hilary School provides a positive learning environment and it is a wonderful school community. Students are inspired to be their best in all areas - intellectually, socially, and spirituality. We achieve academic success in all areas of the curriculum in a nurturing environment.

I love the attention given and the environment provided to my son at St. Hilary School. He regularly interacts with people of good moral character and learns much more of value than the basic curriculum. My son is becoming a responsible person of integrity. And he is developing a thirst for knowledge and a desire to maximize his abilities, which makes learning and growing that much easier. I look forward to some great years for him at St. Hilary.

Our family recently moved from the Midwest and were looking for a private school in Marin County that could provide a great education for our children - and we were lucky to discover Saint Hilary School. Three years later, we could not be happier with our choice. If you want to give your child the best in education with a caring environment, you and your kids will be happy with Saint Hilary School.
