Gracious homes, stunning views, wooded neighborhoods and good schools distinguish the communities. Suburban growth was augmented by construction of the popular Bon Air Center, home of a number of businesses. Because of the way development and annexation proceeded, many Greenbrae homes are actually in Larkspur. Greenbrae is home to Marin General Hospital, the county’s largest medical facility, and a wide range of clinics and medical specialty offices.
The Kentfield School District serves the central Marin communities of Greenbrae and Kentfield. The district includes two schools: Anthony G. Bacich Elementary School (K-4) and Adaline E. Kent Middle School (5-8.) Most Kentfield School District graduates attend Redwood High School in the Tamalpais Union High School District. Kentfield is home to the College of Marin.
