Marin Horizon School offers a challenging academic curriculum that prepares its graduates to succeed in school and in life. Our program offers traditional core disciplines—cultural studies, language arts, science, mathematics, and fine arts—within an enriched and interdisciplinary approach. Specialists provide instruction in Spanish, visual and performing arts, music, library, media, science and physical education. Children are encouraged to work at their highest academic potential.
Marin Horizon offers a challenging curriculum where learning is based on the following principles:
- A child’s life is a continuum in which each stage of development is preparation for the next. Like a mirror of the developing child’s natural states, the curriculum complements our children’s needs and interests as they mature academically, socially, physically and emotionally.
- Children naturally love to learn. Marin Horizon teachers are committed to providing an environment and direction that promote learning through discovery at a child’s own pace.
- Children are grouped in multi-age classrooms. Older children in the class benefit from helping the younger ones, reinforcing their knowledge by modeling for their peers. The youngest children imitate and internalize skills before they even receive lessons. Knowledge and behavior is passed on from one level to the next.
