An excellent Marin elementary school. NC excels in the fundamentals, math, and language arts, as shown by the high recent CA proficiency scores. A friendly campus with dedicated teachers. Would definitely recommend this school.

Neil Cummins Elementary School was outstanding for our daughter. And, a group of 12 fathers with young daughters would get together every month for activities and almost all of these active dads were also pleased with the administration, staff, and teachers. This school is adjacent to a large Town park and has safe walking and bicycle access. There are also options for after-school care nearby.
