We were really looking forward to start at Marin. The disappointment was huge. You can check almost everything on that school checklist: the school is clean, the library is good, there are pizza and movie nights, PJ days and field trips. What this school lucks is actual teaching. Kids in 2nd grade did ...  Read more

The best school in the East Bay. Outstanding teachers, great students, excellent science/math/chess/music programs, and involved parents.

This school has a sweet community and dedicated staff who try really hard with the limited funding available. Unfortunately, there has been unnecessary administrative turnover and the district seems to have an agenda that I believe is not in the students' best interest. However, in terms of public ...  Read more

I think that the third grade is the best because the teachers are the best and I love the computer and card club in Room 3. All the teachers are great and I love the playgrounds. I also love that my friends at Marin come from countries all over the world. Happy Marin Student

I love Marin school because the teachers are wonderful! I couldn't ask for a better community of parents and kids. My child is so happy to be attending Marin school.

I agree 100% reviewer from June 2003. We had a similar experance. We have not had a very positive experience at all with the whole Albany School District.

From the teachers to the principal to the volunteers, this is a wonderful program. I picked Albay after a divorce which found my ex-wife relocating to Berkeley. I did all the research I could and landed in Albany as a result. I do wish they had a little more in the area of sports but am planning on ...  Read more

Excellent school. Academically strong, teacher involvement high and music program excellent. Parent involvement similar to private schools - lots. Although it is public it feels like a private school with all the support both academically and parent/teacher.

Marin Elementary School
Albany City Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
