With an uncompromising commitment to exceptional academics and universal Jewish values, we ignite a passion for learning that propels our students to become caring and engaged global citizens.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Brandeis Marin is a learning community committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This commitment emanates from the school’s core Jewish values of kindness (Chesed), integrity (Ometz Lev), and service (Tikkun Olam) as well as honoring the dignity of every person (Kavod HaBriot).
It is our belief that our community is intellectually and morally strengthened when many different voices, viewpoints, and backgrounds learn with and from each other.
Through formal instruction, spiritual reflection, and student activities, we cultivate a school culture of empathy and principled action. We facilitate experiences to educate our students, faculty and families towards a richer understanding and appreciation of diversity so that they feel a deep sense of belonging and ownership and are prepared to be global citizens capable of becoming productive agents of change for a more just world.

KINDNESS – CHESED חסד
