Welcome to Marin Primary and Middle School! I have been a teacher and educator for almost thirty years, but I will never forget my first day visiting this campus and experiencing the shared sense of mission and purpose that was apparent everywhere I looked. Teachers and students clearly respect, trust, and enjoy one another, which is at the core of all deep learning experiences. Children’s original work hangs throughout the school and highlights the learning process. The active learning I saw at MP&MS demonstrates how robust and rigorous curricula can engage children’s minds and excite their spirits. Moving between buildings, passing through the garden and the amazing outdoor spaces, I was struck by how respectfully designed and thoughtfully created the campus is. I remember turning to my student guide and proclaiming, “This is what school should look, sound and feel like!”
Since 1975, Marin Primary & Middle School has been an innovative learning community where integrated, experiential projects complement a strong core curriculum. Our founders envisioned a school where childhood is treasured, where learning is relevant, and where students thrive personally and academically. Our graduates leave MP&MS well-prepared as 21st century thinkers who have the confidence to take risks and meet challenges in the next chapter of their educational lives.
The dynamic MP&MS curriculum and team teaching model provides opportunities for students to explore their passions and deepen their learning alongside talented educators who value collaboration and creativity. Our enhanced campus provides opportunities for learning that extend well beyond the classroom, with STEAM projects, extracurricular offerings including drama and athletics, and an engaging after school program.
We value, seek, and foster a diverse and inclusive community. Our school encourages application from children who love to learn, who rise to the challenge of a strong academic program, and who thrive in an environment that promotes leadership, independent thinking, self-advocacy, and empathy. I am thrilled to be part of this exceptional community, and I invite you to browse our website or better yet, come visit our campus to learn more about what makes Marin Primary & Middle School so unique.
