Marin Montessori School is founded on confidence in the potential of each child and adolescent to learn and flourish. It is our core belief that for students to flourish, ours must be a community of belonging--one in which each person is known, valued, and warmly included. Recognizing too that we are preparing students for an interdependent, globalized world, MMS builds a vibrant school community in which we learn to expand our horizons by viewing the world through the lenses of a wide variety of outlooks and backgrounds. At MMS, students and families from all walks of life are welcomed, included, and honored.
Inclusion requires investment. MMS allocates over $1 million each year to support thirty percent of our families with tuition assistance. This allows us to create a sustainable, inclusive, and socio-economically diverse school community.
A three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Maria Montessori envisioned a world in which all children and adolescents are given the guidance, resources, and environments they need to learn, reach their potentials, and become positive contributors to the world. Diversity, equity, and inclusion work requires ongoing investigation and dedicated effort, and it is in this same spirit and aspiration that MMS continues today in the twenty-first century.
