Marin Academy Ratings & Reviews

July 18, 2016 Submitted by a community member
Lacking in grade-wide curriculum (one history teacher assigns 2 1/2x the reading of the other history teacher equivalent), teacher-run school, so lacking in objective oversight, passive, lackluster, disappointing head of school, poor teachers stay until they retire or choose to leave. Art and music are very good.

Wonderful School with very good staff and students and kind community that cherishes good people
February 02, 2014 Submitted by a parent
Marin Academy offers a rigorous college preparatory academic curriculum and a top notch music and art program, but it is not a school where kids that are shy and not super confident will thrive. MA attracts very outgoing and confident students, so if your child matches that description, it is a great place. If you child needs any help or is struggling at all (academically, emotionally or socially), they are not likely to get much support from the administration or faculty.

We are an upper-middle class family with enough - no fancy homes in Stinson or Tahoe, and our cars aren't the newest, but we pay our bills. Having had one child go through MA and another who will be finishing up there shortly, I would have to say that my children have reported the opposite of what another poster wrote about flaunting of wealth and "alpha kids." My kids felt well-treated and well-accepted by their peers. Both kids in classes separated by a few years felt their peers would gladly help them out with a ride or with homework, even if those peers weren't their best buddies. Another poster wrote about the unevenness of teaching, which I think is true - at MA and anywhere else. The first kid was able to advise the second kid about which teachers to avoid, if possible. Yes there are drugs, and yes there are parents who supply alcohol, and your kid is bound to find drugs, on any campus, if that is his or her thing. This is a nice school with nice kids. It's not a perfect school. No school is.

Although there are some good teachers at MA, the institution as a whole has a very elitist, privileged gestalt. Although the teachers deliver a program that is progressive, the "alpha kids" and their wealthy parents rule the school. My daughter was very intimidated by the vast number of students who are extraordinarily wealthy and socially connected, and/or highly competitive in athletics, academics, and even in the arts. There is very little socioeconomic or racial diversity; even a middle class kid feels "poor" at MA. I believe that MA does very little to help support kids who are struggling to fit in, having a difficult adolescence, or who are not developmentally ready for the academic rigor of the MA program. Teachers have "Tutorial" time available to help students, but some of the teachers are cold and demanding, launching their college level expectations on the students. There is a very real drug problem at MA. The open campus is conducive to student drug use during the school day. The administration and teachers seem to ignore this problem with rare exceptions. The school deceptively markets itself as being fun, friendly, and supportive. This was not our experience.
