Marin Montessori School Ratings & Reviews

I can't think of a better place for teaching, guiding, and creating thoughtful, kind, smart, self-aware, and peaceful young adults. It prepares them academically (my oldest graduated from the Jr. High and is currently at Branson), but more importantly, it teaches them how to think deeply and find the answers to their questions. It teaches self-control, self-awareness, kindness, and respect. And best of all, the students at Marin Montessori aren't anxious and stressed. They are given the guidance and time to become true learners and thinkers, not hoop-jumpers who will do anything to beat the competition. They are very happy people who sincerely care about the community.

Marin Montessori has nurtured our children's curiosity, fueling their learning of academics and also of life. We are blown away by the invaluable life skills that our kids are gaining – collaborating with their peers, guiding their own work, discovering how they learn best as an individual, experiencing the joy of solving a problem after truly struggling with it, meaningfully contributing to a community – which few schools are set up to instill in children. Most importantly, they have developed a love of learning and truly enjoy going to school. We are pleased knowing that when our kids graduate from Marin Montessori, they will be kind, capable, and confident to pursue their dreams.

Straight-up excellent! The Montessori pedagogy can seem mysterious and opaque at times, because it doesn't conform to conventional methods with which most of us are familiar from our own childhoods, but the results are hard to deny. The kids become learners of great character and integrity, and they excel in their educational and career pursuits beyond MMS. Our alums are amazing, and they go to top schools and are judged to be superb students and leaders by their peers and teachers. The transition from the Montessori practice to that found in most conventional high schools can seem like a big step at first, but MMS students are well prepared and adaptable. The Junior High program bridges that divide with fairly rigorous testing and homework practices, so there are no surprises on the other end. This stuff simply works, and it's the future.

I have a son who is extremely active and verbal. Already - at 2.5 yrs old - I feel that Marin Montessori School’s program has channeled him into his best self. Montessori classrooms are made to be a “children’s house” where all of the materials are designed for the child so that he or she can succeed in using them and feel proud of his or her accomplishments and independence. What Marin Montessori School (MMS) offers is beyond what I can provide at home- for, in this environment (held to international standards under the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) accreditation), my son can be entirely independent. He is also not only able to be so under the guidance of his teachers, but in the mixed-age classroom, is taken care of by his peers and given the opportunity to look after them as well. My son was quick to call everyone in his class his friend, learn all their names, and confidently and articulately speak of them and their days together more than many others he’s known his whole life! “Grace and courtesy” is a vital component at MMS. It is something, as a parent, I highly value and have not found in any other school system at such a young age. This practice, by all staff and students, instills an awareness of each other and respect that cultivates a compassionate and caring community. After attending the Primary program for two months, my son tells his younger brother “I’m here for you” when he cries, explains to him how things work (with patience), helps my husband and me fold laundry; and notices when my water glass is empty and asks if I’d like it refilled - all of which he does voluntarily with pleasure! At MMS, my son is given uninterrupted time to develop his concentration. Whether through washing windows or cutting paper, he finds so much joy in his activities, or “work” as they’re called! He always has the option to choose time for “movement” outside or to work in the garden - among many other “works” in the classroom that harness his language and mathematical skills (among others!) at such an early age. I can’t recommend it enough and am more and more thrilled with MMS and our community every day.

We could not be happier with the school. Our child was struggling with a learning disability that led to depression and anxiety and we made the choice to pull her out of public school to start her at the Junior High level. She started very isolated and with a very low self esteem. She ended the school year with a zest for life, many friends and a capacity to develop warm social bonds. She cried at the end of the year that she wanted to stay in school to stay in touch with her friends! She has regained a passion for learning and while homework is still a bit of work in progress for her, she was able to meet her academic level. We are very grateful for the many back and forth and conversations we had with everyone at the school. From the principal to every one of her teachers. We have felt heard, seen and taken care of as parents of a double gifted child. I highly recommend this school.
