Marin Horizon School

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Marin Horizon School, which offers education for children from toddler through 8th grade in Mill Valley.

Children as young as two years old are already beginning to build social awareness and an understanding of their place in the world. Parents often chose schools with strong character-building programs, like Marin Horizon, because they value having their children educated in a culture of integrity, respect, and responsibility.
