Marin Country Day School
- Private School
- Corte Madera, CA
Parent: My husband and I are both products of public school education so we were hesitant to send our kids to a private school but once we toured the campus and saw how happpy the kids were we knew we had to apply. 11 years later, we have no regrets! MCDS is so much more than a school - it has changed our family for the better. Strong academics are a given (graduates are well prepared for high school); the faculty and staff really know your kids and work hard to make them succeed; kids love going to school; and at the end of 9 years, they come out the other end as pretty nice teenagers. We are a family of color and we appreciate that our kids have grown up in a school culture that celebrates difference and perspective.

Works Here: I am a proud after school teacher at Rosa Parks. This is a school community that works together to support students and families in every way possible. Each student is tracked carefully and provided math and reading intervention when needed. Equity and inclusion are a number one priority at Rosa. Gender neutral restrooms, a yearly PRIDE parade, and daily morning school gatherings where we all recite a pledge by Rosa Parks and practice our social/emotional "tool box" make this school an affirmative environment for all. The after school program called Kid's Village offers amazing enrichment classes-from the yoga class with Papa Da to slime making. Kids just don't want to leave at pick up time!
