Mount Tamalpais School provides students with a solid academic, artistic, and athletic foundation to foster a lifelong passion for learning. Our departmentalized curriculum is structured so that teachers specialize in their particular areas of expertise and teach their subject at various grade levels, often in both the lower and middle school. Students interact with a variety of teachers on a daily basis, translating into a deeper and richer student experience as they progress through their years at MTS. This close bond with teachers helps our students develop independence and maturity, while also fostering a deeper connection to our community.
With our departmentalized structure, students frequently change classes throughout the day, allowing all students K-8 freedom of movement, time for socialization, and a chance to switch gears as they change their areas of focus and instructional space.
