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.
Students change classes every 45 minutes, giving them freedom of movement, time for socialization, and a chance to switch gears as they change their area of focus.
