Thank you for your interest in Marin Montessori. Our admissions process is designed to give you a variety of opportunities to understand and experience the wonder of Montessori education. Through the admissions process you will be able to determine if we are the community where your child and family can blossom and thrive.
I encourage you to learn as much as possible about our programs. Throughout this process, please don’t hesitate to call me or email me. It is my absolute pleasure to help. I love getting to know families through the Admissions process – it’s what makes this work so gratifying.
Most importantly, please join us at one of our upcoming events, which will give you the opportunity to experience Montessori education first hand. On campus, you will meet MMS parents, experience our warm community, and get a taste of the special culture we have built. Joining us while our community is in action will ensure that you feel confident you have made the right choice for your child when it comes time to make your decision.
Should you choose Marin Montessori, you will find that your son or daughter will love learning, feel valued, and be an active contributor to the school and classroom community. Choosing Montessori will provide your child with a strong foundation to lead a joyful and meaningful life.You won’t find any place like Marin Montessori. MMS students come from all over the Bay Area with transportation to serve our thriving community of San Francisco Families. It’s a very special place and I look forward to introducing your family to all that we have to offer. I hope to hear from you soon.

NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATORY POLICY AS TO STUDENTS: Marin Montessori admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, our Open Hose events will be limited to applicant families. At our Open House, you will tour with a current parent and meet AMI–certified teachers. There will be time to explore our carefully prepared classrooms and our beautiful school grounds.
After completion of an application, applicant parents will receive an invitation to join us for an Open House event in January or February 2021.
As Montessorians, we believe in the power of human connection and adaptation. In moments that feel unfamiliar, we thrive.
Keeping Our Connection
Marin Montessori School is committed to our students and families. To ensure the safety of our community, we are not touring in our school building. For families who are interested in learning more about our school, we are now offering virtual tours.
Select a date/time that works well for you. Virtual tours are personal and individual. You'll have a one-on-one tour and discussion with our Director of Admissions. We'll learn about you and your child(ren), while providing you with a full introduction to our school:
- What the “Montessori Method” is and why it leads to a lifelong love of learning
- Who makes up our talented, dedicated staff
- A “day-in-the-life” of our students
You’ll Have Questions - We’ll Have Answers
You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions! No matter the circumstance, we want you to be as informed as possible before making a decision on your child’s future.
COVID-19 is Temporary, Our Students' Love of Learning is Lifelong
In our community, we see challenges like these as opportunities to learn and gain deeper connections with each other. We are still learning together — albeit in new ways.
