Working at Marin Horizon

Marin Horizon offers a wonderfully creative and supportive environment for teaching. All core classes are team-taught and teachers are encouraged to use their imagination and inspiration to engage children in their classes. The curriculum is interdisciplinary and integrated and is designed to help children reach a deep understanding of big ideas and the interconnectedness of everything. The teacher to student ratio is 9:1, including specialists.

The school is Montessori-inspired. Montessori training is required for teachers (and desirable for teaching assistants) at the toddler and pre-school levels. In the elementary and middle school programs, we look for teachers with subject area expertise who share our philosophy of teaching and learning.

Salaries are competitive and a strong benefits package includes full medical insurance, dental and vision coverage, TIAA-CREF retirement, as well as tuition remission and childcare for faculty children. Professional development is strongly supported. Applicants from other parts of the country should note that the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the most expensive areas in the nation.

Marin Horizon School embraces "celebration of diversity" across a wide spectrum as a core value. We teach a multi-cultural curriculum that helps children develop understanding and respect for the ways people in our community and around the world are alike and also different. We seek diversity in our students as well as our staff and we are an equal opportunity employer.

It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunities to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, genetic disposition gender identity or military status.  

Thank you for your interest in Marin Horizon School. We wish you the best in your career search!
