Visit TMS

Visit The Marin School

Prospective parents and students are encouraged to visit The Marin School to experience what makes us unique.

Due to the current school closures related to COVID-19, TMS is engaging in Remote Learning.  TMS faculty and Administration are committed to providing the same dynamic, engaging learning environment as we truly move "beyond the classroom."  We also recognize that maintaining our social-emotional curriculum and sense of school culture is equally important.

One of the BIG benefits to such a small school is that with our average class size of 8-10, The Marin School will be able to easily adapt to projected social-distancing measures in the Fall of 2020.

We've compiled some resources to allow families to "drop in" on some of our online classes, and to take a virtual tour of our campus!  More content will be added in the coming weeks, so be sure to check in frequently!

Student Shadow Visits

The best way to fully experience life at TMS is to spend a day in our shoes! Prospective students will visit classes with a student ambassador, meet current students and faculty, and tour our campus. Student Shadow days are an essential part of our Admissions process.

Student/Parent Interviews
