The primary and middle schools are coeducational, while the high school is all-girls.

Background[edit]

Founded in 1850, San Domenico is the oldest independent school in California. Situated on 500 acres (2.0 km2) in Marin County, San Domenico is a Catholic school operated by the Dominican Order, although it welcomes students of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.

San Domenico has some 500 students. The pre-K through 12 program is a day school, while the high school is both a day school and a boarding school.

San Domenico is the recipient of the National Association of Independent Schools' 2007 "Leading Edge" award for sustainability. In 2008 the school's Garden of Hope was registered as a Bay-Friendly School Garden by StopWaste.Org, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority which promotes waste reduction.
