About Leap


LEAP is the parents of the Lagunitas School District, working hard to build a fundraising community to benefit all of our programs: Montessori, Open Classroom and the Middle School. We need your support!

Help us bridge the gap between state funding and what it actually takes to produce happy, well-rounded, well-adjusted kids. We need you to participate in any way that you can!

LEAP, a non-profit foundation of parent volunteers, develops, cultivates and sustains resources to benefit all the children in the Lagunitas School district. We raise funds for  the Montessori, Open Classroom, and Middle School programs.

LEAP volunteers raise funds through the annual Valley Visions Gala and Auction, Community Sponsorships, the Book Fair, and Read-a-thon. LEAP also administers the Parent Pledge appeal each year, generating additional funding for school programs.

The Lagunitas School District provides outstanding education through unique programs, excellent teachers, and extraordinary parent involvement. Our innovative programs serve as models for other schools across the nation. Our graduates consistently excel in high school, emerging unusually well adapted to the real world with many going on to attend the best colleges and universities in the nation.

Strong schools like ours develop responsible citizens and leaders. Your support is essential to provide the children of San Geronimo Valley with the quality education they deserve.

Remember: LEAP is US!
