  • Welcome to Old Mill School!

    Old Mill School is a wonderful place to learn and grow. All of our staff are highly trained professionals and deeply caring individuals who love what they do. Our parent community is one of the most supportive you will find anywhere and help make our school such an amazing place for children and families.

    MR.D Since 1921, Old Mill has provided an excellent education for its students. In addition to the daily guidance provided by our homeroom teachers, we currently offer music, art, library, physical education, and dance classes. Throughout the year, assemblies, guest speakers, field trips, Character Education activities, and other programs take place to further enrich our children’s lives. Mindfulness lessons, poetry, theater lessons, art shows, and various day/evening events (e.g. Lapathon, Art Show, Winter Book Fair, STEAM Night, Spruce it Up, etc.) will be part of this current school year. The district foundation, Kiddo!, and our own Old Mill PTA, make many of these programs possible entirely because of parent donations. Check the district Kiddo! and Old Mill PTA webpages to find out more about these programs and how you can support the children in Mill Valley.

    Old Mill is a place where we care about others and our planet. Our students, staff, and parents find opportunities every year to help those in need and improve our local and global community. We have fundraised in the past for the local Marin Food Bank, homeless shelters, connected with other schools, supported families hit by natural disasters, and this year, we will continue to work with Zero Waste Marin to make our school more sustainable and eco-friendly. We are also implementing the Old Mill Learner Profile, to encourage the development of global citizens.

    We encourage you to participate and support our rich educational program. Without parent support, many of these programs would not be possible. Be sure to stay informed by reading weekly classroom newsletters, and subscribing to the school’s Raccoon News and the PTA’s “The Creek” here.

    Thank you for visiting our website. It is a work in progress and constantly developing, so come back soon…

    I wish you all a fantastic school year. Old Mill is a special place to be, and that is because you are part of it!

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Kind regards,

    Jason Deppong
