General School Mission

"Marin Primary & Middle School is an 18-month through eighth grade learning community that fosters ethical, confident and compassionate individuals.
At Marin Primary & Middle School, we believe childhood is a time to be treasured. We believe that children respond best to kindness, encouragement and mutual respect. We also recognize that relationships, relevance and high standards are critical to successful education. MP&MS students are challenged to develop a lifelong passion for learning that includes equal measures of wonder and rigorous inquiry. We teach our children to learn with and from each other, and we teach the group to respect the individual.
Our curriculum is built around “teams of teaching.” We believe education requires an integrated and interactive approach, inside the classroom and beyond - from physical education to science and technology, the arts and languages to outdoor education. Our faculty identifies and cultivates the varied ways in which children learn. Using the best practices in education, our teachers encourage children to trust their natural desire to question and explore. Our staff creates dynamic and collaborative environments where children can excel in the acquisition of both social and academic knowledge.
We are committed to diversity, community service, and global citizenship. Our school builds relationships that involve the family, creating a strong, intimate, and nurturing community. Our final measure of success is the enthusiasm of our students. We strive to create an environment where joy, responsibility and academic excellence can flourish, where children love to come to school each day. And we know we are successful when our students graduate with both a love of learning as well as an unshakable belief in themselves
