St. Mark Elementary School

Saint Mark School reached a peak enrollment of 923 students in 1957 and became a sixteen-classroom school the following year.
A Kindergarten opened in September of 1981 with 25 students.
Other rooms were used to create the library, the upper and lower grade learning centers, the art/science room, religion/music room, school offices, religious education offices, faculty and supply rooms.
From 1989 till 1992 an after school day care program was initiated to provide a safe environment for our students after school.
In 1992 after-school day care was eliminated due to low enrollment. Current enrollment is approximately 275.
