Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Marin Horizon School makes a difference in children's lives so they can make a difference in their world. MHS accomplishes this by providing an engaging and challenging curriculum in a supportive environment where learning is based on the following principles:

A child's life is a continuum, where 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. MHS teachers are committed to providing the environment and guidance that promotes 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 often imitate and internalize skills before they receive a formal lesson. Knowledge and behavior is passed on from one level to the next.
