Novato has great public and private schools; from pre school, elementary, through high school
For pre-schools, there are traditional day care/pre schools/nursery school, Montessori, YMCA run, Novato Youth Center, and others. For K to 12 schools, you have religious school, none denominational; alternative schools, charter schools, and traditional public schools; there are GATE programs, special ED programs and many others; same as high schools. Our public schools have some of the best academic and performing arts programs, along with excellent athletic and extra curriculum programs. Coupling with that, the Novato Parks and Recreation offers many enrichment programs throughout the year.
