SMALLER CLASSES. BIGGER RESULTS. At Summit Tamalpais, we take personalized learning one step further – every student is assigned a faculty mentor who is the student’s coach, college counselor, and advocate. Students learn and grow in a small, safe, and inclusive community.
COLLEGE-PREP CURRICULUM. Students engage in real-world learning projects. These projects teach students to become critical thinkers and develop the habits to be successful.
WORLD-CLASS FACULTY. Our committed educators come from the nation’s top teacher-preparation programs and care deeply about our students. Our teachers focus on building relationships with students and families and coaching students to become truly empowered learners.
AN ENRICHED EXPERIENCE. Beyond the classroom, Summit Tamalpais students can receive academic support, play sports, or lead a club. We are open after hours so students can continue to work on their goals, meet with teachers, or participate in one of our athletic teams or student clubs from soccer to yearbook and music and basketball.

What Parents Say
What I like most about my son's experience with the school is the personalized learning and mentor program. The students all seem to share the same goal of wanting to do well in school now so they can go to a 4-year college. They encourage and build upon each other's confidence.
