Mission Statement

The Marin Preparatory School mission is to provide opportunities for students to achieve their personal best, to become proactive community members, and to embrace learning in a warm and productive environment. We provide a progressive, Spanish-infused educational program that pairs interactive thinking with an experiential curriculum, and that nurtures the individual strengths and needs of a diverse student population. Our goal is to stimulate a lifelong desire to seek knowledge and to build a strong sense of community among students, faculty, and parents.

Educational Approach

Our rigorous academic program is a balance of traditional and progressive approaches. Through a curriculum that pairs project-based learning with 21st Century skills (collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity), children delve deeply into subjects, see connections to the real world, and broaden their perspectives. Additionally, our Spanish-infused program ensures Spanish proficiency, global awareness, and appreciation for Spanish-speaking countries. We practice Mindfulness and incorporate Responsive Classroom in our daily lives at school, and center our program on the knowledge that a strong social/emotional component serves children well throughout their elementary school years and beyond.
