We are a vibrant kindergarten-8th grade independent school located in Sausalito, California, that's open for in-person and virtual learning. Academics are rigorous, and our students grow inner resources to thrive in a profoundly changing world. Since fall 2020, we have safely and successfully offered both in-person and distance learning lessons for all ages.
In 2008, a group of teachers, parents, and teachers decided to create a place where their children had ample time and space to play the old-fashioned way, climbing trees, playing tag, and running free. They wanted studies to be rigorous and lively without the added adult pressures to perform by standards. They wanted the arts, nature, and culture to be more than an afterthought.
With progressive insight and guidance, a teacher-run school was born full of adventurous, thoughtful, kind, and creative souls who bring a sense of beauty, understanding, meaning, and hope to the next generations in our human story.
