Student Support Services

Marin Horizon strongly values the development of the whole child. Children who struggle with any aspect of their learning, due to learning differences and/or social-emotional challenges, are supported at Marin Horizon through our Student Support Services. Our learning specialists and school counselor work alongside teachers and parents to develop student support plans.

Student Support Services Program

Marin Horizon offers a child-centered, developmentally based academic program. The majority of our students enter the school at the pre-school level before any learning differences or issues become apparent to teachers and parents.
When learning issues are identified, the school makes every effort to work with parents and outside specialists to determine strategies and accommodations that help children find success in our program. Agreements and timelines that result from conferences will be formally documented with copies for the school and parents.
Learning issues can be complex, and every child presents a unique learning profile. As children grow older some issues may resolve themselves, while others may persist and interfere more seriously in a child’s success as academic expectations increase. New issues may also present themselves at later stages of development. In some cases, periodic review may be needed to evaluate how Marin Horizon can best serve an individual child’s needs.
