Our school is located just off Highway 101 in Novato, California. We are in the heart of Marin County, just 30 minutes from the city of San Francisco. Our county is renowned for its beaches, hiking trails, countryside, and old-growth redwood trees. Marin’s residents are dedicated to preserving the natural splendor of this region. Consequently, our unspoiled coastline is protected by thousands of acres of parkland and is one of the most desirable areas to live in the United States.
