Mission, Vision, and Values


Horizon Community School is an early childhood education program that advances educational equity and social justice. We leverage public and private resources with Marin City community expertise to prepare children for academic success.  


Equitable high-quality early childhood education in a model of community partnership.


Partnership – We partner with families, educators, and community members and value each other’s voices in our decision making.

Kindness – We respect and honor each other, listen with empathy, and seek to understand each other’s perspectives.
Cultural Emphasis – We recognize that each child brings a unique cultural background to the classroom and value these contributions of our children, families, and community.

Transformative Leadership – We maintain high standards in our research-informed pedagogy. We develop and support passionate educators who exude the joy of learning, reflect the community we serve and mentor others to teach our students effectively.

HCS Parent

Horizon Community School has been a lifesaver for my family. I love that my child attends a school that embodies diversity in the curriculum, staff, and student body. Being around teachers and students who look like her provides her with self-confidence, and she is flourishing!
