Top 5 Ways TMS makes a BIG impact:
We teach individuals at The Marin School.
"The Marin School offers the extraordinary opportunity to learn in an atmosphere that is warm, individualized and happy. Students here are deeply engaged with both their work and their teachers. This is what education should look like."
-Madeline Levine , Ph.D., Author of The Price of Privilege and Teach Your Children Well
We're redefining what it means to be College Prep
At The Marin School, we consider mastering content and subject matter important, of course, but we believe it's equally vital to teach students how to think, reason, interpret, analyze, and improvise. Our graduates leave TMS ready to embark on life's journey as thoughtful, confident, contributing members of the global community.
We are a small school by DESIGN.
Our small class size (9 on average) and low-student-to teacher ratio (8-to-1 average), naturally encourage more personalized teaching, experiential learning, innovative lessons and non-traditional, yet effective, learning opportunities.
We take a creative approach to everything we do.
Creativity is encouraged and embraced at all levels of the learning process, in the classrooms and across disciplines. The Marin School teachers are empowered to teach, and students are free to learn in surprising, sometimes unorthodox, yet thoroughly effective ways. We celebrate project-based learning and STEM programming, including integrative use of coding and hands-on tools in our Fab Lab and coding classes. Creativity is also evident in the traditional sense of drawing, painting, photography, design, film, technology, creative writing, drama and music.
We have a World-Class Faculty
The Marin School faculty is made up of passionate, skilled, motivated teachers who love what they do. They also know that not everyone learns in the same way. As a result, creative approaches for teaching and learning are cornerstone values at The Marin School.
