    "My son attended Reed District Schools (Tiburon) prior to our relocating to San Anselmo. All of our friends were preaching to put our boy in Marin Catholic, which I was ready to sign the check. Before doing so, we took a closer look at Sir Francis Drake (SFD), and can only say that I am thankful that we did. To summarize, SFD is the kind of High School which most parents search frantically for to place their children in, however never find. SFD methodically and effectively prepares their student body for accredited universities and the trials which lay ahead later in life. It is always amazing when I engage one of these young people from SFD, how well rounded and able they are to converse on a variety of topics/issues. My son is in his junior year, earning top marks and is emotionally healthy thanks to the safe, friendly learning environment he has the privilege of attending each day. He is an honors student, has a wonderful, responsible group of friends, and is actually interested in attending YALE when he graduates (my alma mater)! Thank you SFD!"

    "This is the best High School in Marin. My daughter is thriving in this thought provocing environment, has a kind, go-getter group of friends, and the balance between academics, sports and extracurricular activities is well balanced. There always seems to be enough time to accomplish Drake's requirements. This is because the curriculum is so well planned and being delivered by expert teachers who do not capitulate on excellence. To put into perspective, because of where our residence lines up in Kentfield, I had a choice to send my daughter to either Redwood or Drake. Before making my decision, I visited both campuses, met with both Principals, studied their academiic and sport histories, even researched the percentage of students who directly atternded accredited Universities (i.e., Cal, Stanford, MIT, USF, etc.) - and after the dust settled, decided on Drake. That should sum it up. I am absolutely delighted with my choice."

    "Son formerly attended Drake, then Redwood now Tam. Of the 3, Tam and Drake rate highest (forget Redwood s controlled API all window dressing). If the Tiberon/Belvedere kids were not allowed to skip down the road to Redwood, and made to attend their school of residency (Tam)as is everyone else in Marin, it would be TAM all the way. This would balance the Marin City influence which continues to drive Tam s API rating down. However, it I had to do it over, would have stayed in San Anselmo and kept my kid at Drake. Due to progressing demographic changes and school performance, within the next 5 years, there will be no question which is the premiere Marin High School DRAKE, all the way!!"

    "Drake is the greatest because the staff and students sing and laugh and enjoy being there. We work hard and have fun. All students are respected; no one is bullied and it is definitely not cool to use slurs."

    "Everyone I have met here at Drake, both staff and students, is kind, respectful, and cares about learning. Students in our community are taught the values of tolerance and community service. Most people here seem genuinely happy to be here learning, and that is a wonderful thing."
