Your child learns at his perfect level

CONSIDER US A personal trainer for your child's brain

For math and language arts, students are grouped by ability level, rather than by grade. This structure (made possible by "band scheduling") allows children to learn at their own natural pace, and is especially well-suited to gifted and unique learners.

Using an assessment-driven approach, we identify your child's abilities on a granular level. We map his progress in traditional subjects, as well as his physical, social-emotional, and artistic development.

We then work with your family to craft a customized learning plan for your child. We meet him where he's at, and allow him to progress at his own natural pace. Like the perfect workout, our students find that this on-point learning solution feels just right. (Our point-of-need approach is especially appreciated by students who have come from a one-size-fits-all school, and know from experience the discomfort of a poor fit.)

At Terra Marin we adapt our curriculum to fit your child - instead of trying to change your child to fit our curriculum. And the sky is the limit when it comes to our expansive, robust academics.

Terra Marin students embrace challenge. We strive to stay ahead of them by providing course content that can go as broad or as deep as our students wish. Our robust, challenging program includes Spanish, Mandarin, Engineering, Drama, Art, and Music. We even offer our students access to high-school-level courses. We also offer a home-school support program for 5th-8th grade students who want to augment their at-home coursework.

We believe a child should be challenged, not pressured, and inspired, not forced, to learn.
