    "My two children have attended MCDS since kindergarten. It's an amazing school, and I recommend it without reservation. The school works hard to create a strong community that includes students, parents, teachers and staff. The curriculum is excellent. And the teachers are top-notch. The school welcomes and celebrates diversity."

    "On first glance, MCDS is like a small liberal arts college except the students are much younger. The beautiful, sprawling campus provides an idyllic setting for student learning, which is founded on a healthy mix of progressive and traditional approaches. The facilities themselves are truly world class, but it's the community of faculty, staff, students and parents that put MCDS on the map as a premier independent K-8 school. It is a place of possibility, an all-you-can-eat buffet for teaching and learning where you have to be careful not to put TOO MUCH good stuff on your plate. The place is teeming with inspiration, joy, challenges and people who truly care about students' educational well being. Faculty members meet children and parents where they are on their path. They foster growth in a positive, supportive manner, and genuinely love their craft. Current initiatives include Creativity & Innovation, STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Math), Mindfulness education, Education for Sustainability, and diversity/inclusion community initiatives. In many ways, MCDS is truly the holy grail of independent schools. Those who get to join the community are tremendously fortunate."

    "MCDS is a warm, supportive, and joyous community. Students are encouraged to explore their social-emotional self in addition to their academic identity and have many opportunities to integrate play and experimentation with their learning. The campus is a gorgeous outdoor space which allows for studying the bay and wildlife, playing in the creek, gardening, hiking, tending to chickens, playing sports, and meditating."

    "Thoughtful instruction, great teaching and support staff, rigorous research-grounded academic approach, increasingly diverse students, and a 'whole child' approach in a gorgeous country setting."

    "I can't imagine anyplace better than MCDS. I can't imagine going anywhere else either, for there is no one I would rather be than myself and I only got here because of MCDS. The person who gave four stars: Our school isn't just based on you kid's reading level. Everyone will get there at some point. Our school is based on who the kid is and what the kid will become. I mean no offense to you or your kid, but maybe they just were not the correct fit. But MCDS could be the most important thing that has ever happened to me."
