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.
Professional development is strongly supported.
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.
In keeping with our focus on values, we involve children in real and relevant experiences in the school and in the larger community to help them develop a personal ethic and put it into practice. Within this context we offer a service learning program, opportunity for off-site projects for older children, and multiple opportunities to work on projects that make a difference in our world.
