Marin Horizon School is an independent, progressive school serving 310 students enrolled in Toddler – 8th grade on two campuses in Mill Valley. This year is our inaugural founding year of a third campus, the Horizon Community School, serving Marin City residents with early start education for two-year-old students.
The school was founded as a Montessori-inspired preschool in 1977 by a group of parents and faculty. The program has grown to incorporate other educational approaches that complement our Montessori foundation. Most classes serve multi-age groups of students that enhance the learning process for both older and younger students. The curriculum is strongly multi-cultural and interdisciplinary. Arts, Music, and Drama are often integrated into cultural studies and have an important place in the program.
