San Geronimo Schools

Golf, horseback riding, meditation, cycling, and hiking in the redwoods; the San Geronimo Valley has something for everyone.

Public Schools in San Geronimo

Two public school districts provide educational services to students living in the San Geronimo Valley. Lagunitas School District is the home district for the elementary and middle schools. Most high school students from the San Geronimo Valley area attend Sir Francis Drake High School in the Tamalpais Union High School District.

Lagunitas School District serves the San Geronimo Valley, which includes the small towns of Forest Knolls, Lagunitas, Woodacre, and San Geronimo. There are two schools in the district. Although they are public schools, the elementary grades are not the traditional classrooms that are generally found throughout most of the state.

Tamalpais Union High School District provides secondary school education to students coming from ten elementary districts in Marin County, including the Lagunitas School District. It includes three comprehensive high schools, all of which have been designated as California Distinguished Schools, and two alternative schools. Students from the Lagunitas School District attend Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo.
