The Marin School currently serves 90 students in grades 9-12. We honor each student's unique learning style and act in accordance with an unshakable belief in the potential of each and every student. Our motto is "Small School. Big Impact.” The school’s Program for Academic Success (PAS) was created to better serve students with mild to moderate learning differences, to ensure each student's scholastic and personal success.
