39 Parent Reviews for Ring Mountain Day School

Ring Mountain Day School is like a little island of positivity. I am a member of the faculty, and I can't tell you how warm and welcoming the whole school feels now that we have had our new Head of School with us for 2 years. Children are excited to come to school, and we, the staff, are excited to ...  Read more

We wish we had found Ring Mountain at the start of middle school but are lucky my son attended last year and this. I was afraid it was too small and it wasn't. With the Harkness methodology these students learn more at Ring Mountain than in a traditional classroom and the balance of the whole child ...  Read more

Our son came to Ring Mountain's middle school last year and, each day since then, I have felt grateful for this school. The teacher-student ratio allows for the sort of education not possible in other private or public schools. The teachers are extraordinarily in tune with each individual child and ...  Read more

Ring Mountain Day School's faculty and staff genuinely care about each and every student - and my child is not "odd", neither are his many friends. Teachers are open and welcoming and have high academic expectations which are reinforced through a focused approach on social and emotional development, ...  Read more

I guess the students who are not "odd" are thriving at this school, but just that the reviewer calls students "odd" is a little worrisome. We are new to the school and still do not know everyone after a year. If you want a small school, this is the school for you. It can't get much smaller. This ...  Read more

My son has attended Kindergarten at Ring Mountain. He was attending Pre K last year in another well known private school in Marin. We chose Ring Mountain because of small class size and individual attention that the students get. My son has blossomed academically ever since starting here. He's above ...  Read more

The recent post seems to say more about the reviewer than the school. A school in which an odd child has been bullied, teased, or called a name - what a terribly unique experience in American education. Obviously all of these problems are idiosyncratic to Ring Mountain and don't occur anywhere else. ...  Read more

The last review is quite humorous considering that the head of school retired in December. We have an excellent interim head, who has years of experience pole vaulting schools into the future. Our 8th graders placed into their 1st and 2nd choices for high school. When parents write 1 star reviews, ...  Read more

I liked this school very much for one of my children, but I could not agree to send my other child here. The head of school put her son in charge of the school, and then she left without notice or explanation. Unfortunately her son has no experience as an assistant head of school. He failed to complete ...  Read more

This is one of the Bay Area's best kept little secrets. The school is small and nuturing and promotes creativity and independent thought. With the small class size, my child is getting twice the amount of attention she would be getting in the upscale S.F. private schools at a comparitively reasonable ...  Read more
