This is an especially thrilling time to join Marin Montessori, a highly-regarded Bay Area not-for-profit school with an inspiring sixty-year history, a newer and thriving Junior High program in San Rafael, and accreditations from both AMI (Association Montessori International) and CAIS (California Association of Independent Schools). MMS recently expanded our campus, creating a stunning waterfront and nature-rich elementary wing, allowing for tremendous indoor-outdoor learning opportunities and close connections between teachers and classes. MMS is a school with passionate educators and engaged and enthusiastic families.
A recognized not-for-profit school committed to inclusion: $1mm of MMS’s $9mm annual budget is awarded in tuition assistance annually. As a Green-Ribbon awarded school committed to making a positive impact on our environment, MMS was proud to welcome former Vice President Al Gore as the keynote speaker in 2019-2020; he spoke on climate change and youth activism at the school’s annual fundraiser in support of tuition assistance. In the spring of 2021, chef and food activist Alice Waters was the keynote speaker.
