San Marin High School Reviews

The campus is absolutely beautiful and open! The science department is one of the best departments there with many programs such as STEM and biotechnology. The teachers are usually helpful when it comes to your schoolwork as well as your personal life. The campus usually remains fairly clean. I would like to see more enthusiastic teachers who actually seem to enjoy their jobs more.
Review San Marin High School
There are many different clubs/organizations that are offered at San Marin. We have had many clubs do awesome things, such as, Travel Club took a trip to Costa Rica this past summer, JSA went to two conventions regarding debates and public speaking, and many other clubs raised awareness for many world issues. Since there is a vast selection of clubs to choose from I think that there is one out here for everyone!
The majority of students are eligible for UC/CSU based on excellent test scores.

The STEM Marin program is excellent. The students have experienced project-based learning, use of technology, work-based learning, community service and have been empowered to manage their own learning in a small program environment. Small group projects have included designing and building a Rube Goldberg machine, creating a video on the physics of sport, developing a hybrid vehicle with an alternative energy source, and a creative engineering project to solve a world issue.
