Timothy Murphy School
We are a nonsectarian, not-for-profit, non-public school committed to helping special education students achieve academic success. Founded in 1985 in San Rafael, CA, we proudly serve students in grades 1-12 from the St. Vincent’s treatment home for boys as well as students from all over the Bay Area, including Marin County and San Francisco.Our programs are built upon decades of experience with children who struggle with profound emotional disturbances and behavioral challenges, often due to early trauma and exposure to domestic abuse and neglect. As such, positive behavior supports and professional mental health services are deeply interwoven into our comprehensive state-adopted curriculum. Our evidence-based programs provide students with a unique opportunity to grow, heal, and learn in a safe and nurturing educational environment.
