Welcome From the Head of School

Welcome to Marin Horizon!

I am delighted by your interest in Marin Horizon School. Since its founding in 1977, Marin Horizon has been educating students in a fundamentally different—and impactful—way. Marin Horizon is a place of creative, active learning built around the intellectual and social needs of children. While I could write at length about the strengths of Marin Horizon, the essence of our school is best summarized by our 5 pillars:

  • We are insatiably curious
  • We are complex thinkers
  • We embrace challenge
  • We are active community members
  • We have a voice

To further your understanding of Marin Horizon's philosophy, I encourage you to learn more about our pillars and read our mission statement.
At Marin Horizon you will see and hear a dynamic and motivated community of learners. You will also observe skilled teachers using proven methods to help students develop academic mastery, social character, and personal confidence. Beyond our classrooms, you will find enriching outdoor education programs, field trips, and extracurricular opportunities.

I invite you to visit our school. Tour the campus, observe a classroom, and discover the unique opportunities that await your child at Marin Horizon.

I look forward to meeting you in person!
