A wonderful, mission-driven school. Mark Day has committed and nurturing teachers and a very challenging program, delivered in an innovative and inspired way. My boys made lifelong friends, learned who they were as citizens of the world and practiced gratitude daily. They figured out how to be organized as students and how they best learned. They were very well prepared for high school and college, and as college grads, they still practice gratitude. I always appreciated the excellent communication from faculty; I felt my children were seen as individuals and encouraged to bring their best selves to school every day. The administration and staff were accessible, helpful, thoughtful and communicated often and well. The community was warm, and welcoming. Mark Day was a great educational foundation, a gift to my children.

Mark Day School is great. We did fun and interesting projects and we had traditions like joke assembly and track & field day for the community. My teachers were really nice and it makes high school easy.

We have a son and a daughter who have attended Saint Mark s School for the past 7 years and we couldn't be happier. Our kids are learning how to think critically, advocate for themselves and work collaboratively with their peers. The curriculum is academically rich, challenging, innovative, purposeful, compassionate and thoughtfully designed to challenge each child at their best. We love the fact that the teachers and the administrators know our children well and value their individuality, while striving to educate the whole child with a growth mindset. The unique global education and media literacy programs have broadened our children's awareness of the world they live in and ignited their desire to become responsible citizens. We''ve been wowed by the professionalism of Joe Harvey, the head of school and the administrative staff, thoughtful teachers, and personal resources available for Saint Mark s kids and their families. Saint Mark's School is a very warm and inclusive school for students and parents alike!
