Ruby Bridges Walk

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion aren't just words at Marin Horizon - they are part of the DNA of the community. Lower and Upper school students walk to Marin City to support equal access and civil rights - an experience in using their voice for causes greater than themselves.

"It's one thing to read about injustice, and another to speak out against it."

Wizard of Oz

Performances like the Monty Python, The Wizard of Oz, A Midsummer Night's Dream - students use their acting and vocal talents, and have a blast doing it. Each year, the school is talking about the breakout star who no one knew possessed such a talent for the stage.

Trail Running

The school may not have a track, but you wouldn't know it when you see the upper school students compete in regional events. The Physical and Outdoor Education programs leverage the surrounding natural trails to hone their running skills, on road and on trails. 

"Every upper school student participates in the track meet - we value courage."

Community Events

Parents are a frequent presence on campus, immersing themselves in primary classroom readings, appreciating student projects, and joining events that unify us all. This community spirit is reflected in our students, who form friendships spanning different grades, fostering a sense of belonging that's increasingly elusive in modern times. The profound bond between the school and its families facilitates the holistic development of every student, underpinned by aligned principles and shared values.
