The best elementary schools are in Tiburon, Ross, Mill Valley, Kentfield/Greenbrae, Larkspur/Corte Madera. This gives you many choices--and there are moore good ones, like Brookside in San Anselmo! Please see http://www.livinginmarin.com/marin-schools-ratings.php for ratings amd more info. Given your interest in schools, we recommend Tiburon or Mill Valley. Depends whether you want to be near the water or mountain--and your price range. Tiburon homes will cost more. We love Sausalito, but it is lower on the list for schools.
