Technology at Marin Horizon

As the culmination of our program, the middle school years are all about developing the ability to engage in abstract thinking and to synthesize and analyze complex issues. Middle school students participate in grade-based classes along with mixed age co-curricular arts and technology classes. The program is strongly project-based, with a focus on integrated, hands-on learning. Outdoor education, service learning, and advisory programs support students’ growth in study skills, organization, self-knowledge, resilience, and empathy. Middle Schoolers act as mentors and leaders of the school community in the Student Leadership Council, on the playground and in buddy Primary classes.
