We just got back from 1st grade Back to school night. I feel so lucky to be part of this school. Our teachers are warm, caring, and wonderfully professional. It's clear that they take pride in what they do and spend a lot of energy being the best they can be. Plus, it is a child focused environment. ...  Read more

I have very mixed feelings about continuing my children's education here. On the one hand it is true the Lisa Zimmer and her staff and teachers are excellent and very hands-on. There are teachers here willing to put in extra time and effort to help kids like mine who are struggling to stay focused in ...  Read more

This school only works if your kid fits in "the box". Children that learn differently or ask a lot of questions are marginalized.

Great Teachers for the most part. The district and the local admin not super responsive to parents. They have work to do concerning oversight of kids as they move from school to after-school activities and programs.

I am in my third year being a part of Edna and I find it hard to believe the less than par reviews I've seen posted. Lisa Zimmer is an excellent principal who not only is a great listener to parents but she acts on finding solutions to issues. She is a do-er. The teachers are all stellar. Yes, parents ...  Read more

We moved to Mill Valley over a year ago and this is our second year at Edna Maguire. Mill Valley School District only assigns new students to one of the 5 elementary schools after proof of residency is established. In many cases, like ours, it may not be the neighborhood school - New Residents Beware! ...  Read more

* 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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
