    "The best thing about Marin Catholic is its happy, friendly, and respectful community. Its education does not only focus on religion but also on the importance of respecting others and recognizing truly important values in life. The campus is also beautiful, the school size is optimal, and food is very good. The athletic program, especially football, is known for being the best in the area. Someone said in an earlier review that "basically if you are rich, you are popular," but I have never witnessed such an issue. However, it is important to note that, contrary to what many people believe, this school is not academically rigorous. In fact, the SAT average of MC is about the same as that of Redwood high school, a neighboring public school. MC is also pretty bad at sending people to top colleges, so if your goal is to get into top colleges, you may want to consider public schools nearby or other academically more rigorous private schools such as Branson or Marin Academy."

    "Funny how so many reviews do mention the word " wealth " when it comes to describing Marin Catholic Students. Well... This is Marin county and people Do seen to have money around here. BUT, most kids At MC are in fact from " normal " homes. Many of them Making daily sacrifices to pay the tuition. Our child did Great at MC! Played sports and had excellent grades. Most - if not all students come from families of college educated parents And that was VERY important to us. Our kid now is attending One of the best colleges in the west coast and simply Doing very well. MC has a formula... And that is the Beauty Of attending this school! If your child is adventurous, friendly, likes to be challenged, Athletic, balanced, and hard working... Then MC Is perfect. But there is room for art, music, theater, AND COMMUNITY Service!!! The dress code/ uniform is great. Nice to see fully dressed Students. If we had to do it all over again we would! Marin Catholic rocks! So so so lucky we were able to Be part of such an amazing institution."

    "Marin Catholic is a TOP notch School! Sending our children to Marin Catholic was the best decision ever made! They received an outstanding education and so much more! Marin Catholic holds kids accountable for their actions and expects and recieves respect from their students. The spirituality that is taught and followed on a daily basis is just another bonus of attending MC. Student and parent participation is above average as most want to be involved. The Alumni program and attendance to Alumni events speaks volumes for what MC breeds. Could not be more proud to have had three graduates of this amazing school!"

    "Marin Catholic was an amazing place for my child. Teachers, on the whole, made themselves available whenever my son needed help. I had concerns about the success of the athletic program (as my child was not an athlete), but came to find the opposite existed. The art program flourished and my son fell in love with ceramics there. The academics were challenging and the teachers inspirational. Upon return from college, my son always pops by "MC" to check in with his teachers and they welcome him with open arms."

    "Both my sons attend Marin Catholic and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it a rigorous academic environment but they each get such amazing support from their teachers. The teachers at MC make themselves available before and after school as well as lunchtime and through email in the evening. They bend over backwards to help the students. They want every student to feel included and to succeed. Although my kids do play sports - the Arts program has blown us away. My sophomore has discovered a new passion for ceramics because of his inspiring teacher (and I have a new set of bowls!). We didn't also didn't realize how fantastic the drama and music departments were until we started going to the plays and musicals. This school is a gem and my husband and I feel blessed to be a part of this amazing community. We couldn't imagine our children anywhere else."
