Marin Country Day School

5221 Paradise Dr, Corte Madera, CA 94925

Founded by a group of parents as the only country day school in the San Francisco Bay Area, MCDS provides a broad and balanced program. Located on a 35-acre, waterfront campus, the school enrolls students from San Francisco and Marin counties. Students work in self-contained classroom groups in grades K-5 and in a homeroom/departmentalized arrangement in grades 6-8. The program emphasizes inquiry and experiential learning at all grade levels. Spanish and Chinese language instruction begin in grade 3. MCDS is characterized by a focus on interdisciplinary teaching, the arts and the sciences. Teachers make use of mobile laptop computer labs to integrate technology instruction across the curriculum. Community service is included in the program at all grade levels; in addition, eighth graders may engage in a three-week service learning project.
