Marin's Community School (MCS) serves youth ages 12 to 17 years in grades 7 through 12 who have been referred by their juvenile probation officer or a School Attendance Review Board and/or expelled from their district of residence. MCS may also serve foster or homeless youth if needed. The program offers board-approved and standards-based curriculum including intensive instruction in English/Language Arts and Mathematics. Students and their parents/guardians work with the program administrator to develop an Individualized Learning Plan which may focus on achieving a high school diploma in our program or on a return to the home school district.
As most of the students referred to the program have social/behavioral challenges, the program focuses on the development of pro-social skills, positive self-esteem and resilience through provision of a variety of support services. Students benefit from learning support services that include Special Education, on site mental health counseling, Aggression Replacement Training (ART), community service opportunities, substance abuse prevention/intervention services and School To Career/Regional Occupational Programs.
Through a close partnership with the Marin County Sheriff's Office, Marin County Juvenile Probation and Marin County Health and Human Services Department, we are able to maintain a safe school campus serving the needs of the most high risk youth in Marin County.
