School Reviews

We love St. Mark''s! The faculty is dedicated, loving, and truly cares about every individual child. The academics are top-notch and results and standards exceed the local public school system. Being a private school allows St. Mark''s to keep the best academics without being burdened by the sometimes questionable requirements the public schools have based on the politics that drive them. St. Mark''s also offers great extra-curricular activities like athletics (the new gym is beautiful!) and the performing arts (plays, voice/choir, instrumental music, and so on)

St. Mark''s is serving our family well with a balanced program of Christian education. In addition to the excellence in core academic subject areas, our children have opportunities to develop their talents in sports, music, drama, and leadership. We are impressed with the sense of family and school pride instilled in our children.
