Marin Schools

Public Schools in Marin County

Marin County has a wide range of residential areas, including larger cities like San Rafael and Novato, smaller enclaves such as Fairfax and Ross, more rural locales that can be found in San Geronimo Valley, as well as unincorporated areas along the coast. To best serve the education needs of children growing up in Marin, school boundaries are not always strictly tied to city limits. Some districts may just cover a portion of a town, while others cover a larger geographic area and serve multiple communities. If a particular school district is important to you, it’s critically important to check the most recent boundary maps with the Marin County Office of Education. It’s advised that you confirm directly with the school district prior to making an offer to purchase a home if this is a pivotal part of your decision in the home-buying process.
