Marin Montessori School:
This is an especially thrilling time to join Marin Montessori, a highly regarded Bay Area school with a history of over fifty years, 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 completed a $3.5mm capital campaign and completed a stunning waterfront and nature-rich elementary wing for our campus. Committed to inclusion, $1mm of MMS’s $9mm annual budget is awarded in tuition assistance every year. 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. This coming spring, chef and food activist Alice Waters will serve as the keynote speaker.
