Terra Marin TK-8 is a progressive private school located in Mill Valley, California.
Our mission is to spark wonder and intellectual curiosity in each child. We achieve this through a purposeful blend of:
- Engaging academics custom-tailored to each child's abilities, strengths and interests;
- An unparalleled social-emotional program; and
- Earth Education, allowing students to learn from our world's best teacher - nature
Terra Marin’s robust social-emotional learning (SEL) program sets your child up for lifelong success in his interactions with peers, family, community and himself.
Children need to receive instruction in social-emotional competence, which is just as critical to their success as any academic subject. Our SEL program helps students develop skills in conflict resolution, self-regulation, responsible decision-making, and positive relationship-building.
We fully support your child, both emotionally and academically, as he realizes his individual potential. We believe each child has his own marvelous "superpowers," and that it is our fundamental responsibility as educators to help develop these special gifts. On the flip side, you can count on us to support and bolster your child's individual needs.
In addition, small class sizes (max of 12:1) are a cornerstone of our educational philosophy. Our small classes contribute, by design, to an intimate environment where your child is fully known, supported and valued. In this environment, our teachers are able to meet your child at his edge, and help him cultivate the courage to push through his edges to new levels of self-discovery.
