This is our fourth year at St. Mark's, and I can't say enough about the school. All three of our children have had an excellent experience. The administration at St. Mark's is dedicated to making each family feel welcome and part of the community. The teachers and staff provide a safe, supportive learning environment in which they focus on the strengths and learning styles of each child. During the current situation with COVID-19, St. Mark's made the transition to distance learning with ease. I was amazed at how quickly they were able to resume teaching. The school has done an incredible job with communicating and keeping the kids engaged.
