Inspiring students to become passionate learners, beacons of kindness, and
advocates for positive change.
Welcome from Head of School
Since its founding in 1977, Marin Horizon has been providing a challenging and robust academic program combined with character-enhancing life skills. Marin Horizon is a place of creative, active learning built around our commitment to developing each student’s confident voice.
Meet the Faculty
Many of the faculty have been in the school for more than 20 years, and leverage their experience to shape the academic program to instill the love of learning.
In addition to being experienced and passionate teachers, the Marin Horizon faculty are learners themselves - they keep abreast of and adapt to the most advanced teaching methodologies with professional development.
Our transformative curriculum is designed to inspire students to embrace challenges, think critically, and become compassionate advocates.
Each grade’s curriculum has been thoughtfully crafted to generate intellectual curiosity, and purposefully connected to the next grade for a seamless continuity of learning.
Our experienced teachers make each lesson an immersive learning experience for deep, conceptual understanding.
Marin Horizon School offers a challenging academic program combined with character-enhancing life skills to give each student a voice. The curriculum is designed to ensure every student develops a strong learning foundation, a wide set of academic knowledge, and critical reasoning and problem-solving skills along with empathy and leadership skills for success.
Students focus on self-advocacy, academic resilience, and critical thinking skills. They take ownership of their learning and graduate with a strong sense of self, ready to contribute positively to the world.
Learning Beyond the Classroom
At Marin Horizon, learning extends beyond the classrooms into our beautiful surroundings and community, where students learn character development skills and become advocates for change. The experiential learning program teaches leadership, teamwork, independence, problem-solving, and care for the environment and our community. The Performing Arts program focuses on developing creative expression, imagination, and self-confidence.

from Indexed Tuition
Our deeply engaged community of parents are a frequent presence on campus, immersing themselves in primary classroom readings, appreciating student projects, and participating in events that unify us all. This community spirit is reflected in our students, who form friendships spanning different grades, and feel a sense of belonging that's increasingly elusive in modern times. The bond between the school and its families facilitates the holistic development of every student.
