Marin's Community School serves students from 7th-12th grade from throughout the county. Students must register with a District, and then can be referred to our programs through the District.
We are excited to offer a viable alternative program for students and families who are seeking a smaller setting with a higher staff-to-student ratio, personalized learning, and increased supports so that students can be prepared for college, career and life. As we challenge the traditional identity of alternative education programs, we encourage referrals earlier for students who would benefit from the program we have here.
Generally, districts refer students through SARB or explusion. However, we do have students who self-refer, and many who elect to stay with us after the completion of their contracts because they value our programs. In these cases, we would work with the MCOE team as well as the home District to ensure our school is the best placement for the students.
