Core Values & Portrait of a Graduate
In 2020, representatives from the MP&MS leadership team and board of trustees joined a working group, led by veteran educator and independent school advisor Al Adams, to define and distill the institutional core values that distinguish the MP&MS learning journey. Over the course of six months, in collaboration with key constituents and subcommittees, the Core Values and Portrait of an MP&MS Graduate documents took shape. These living documents represent both what MP&MS stands for today, and what we aspire to be as a flourishing and evolving educational community.
We Value Courage, Curiosity, Connection
Our core values at Marin Primary & Middle School are rooted in the importance of developing character through courage, inspiring curiosity, and fostering a connected community. We measure our success by the behavior and accomplishments of every student, in every classroom, every day.
