We are coming to the end of our second year at St. Mark`s in the Preschool Program and we could not be happier. My son LOVES going to school everyday and we have no doubt that he is learning what he needs to (and more!) to prepare him for Kindergarten, while also being instilled with the values and skills that will help him become a child with excellent character and strong morals. The teachers are outstanding role models and extremely well qualified educators. We also love that the Preschool Program includes P.E., Music, Spanish, Library and Religious Education. The Program is truly so well rounded. We are so happy to be a part of this community that will not only challenge our kids academically, but will help shape them into genuinely good people at heart.

Making the transition from middle school to high school can often be a nerve-racking time for a student. This statement described me as I was about to graduate St. Mark`s and voyage to a high school, where a new story would begin. After the first week of my new high school, I looked back and wondered what I was so worried about. The transition was seamless and I have one place to thank: St. Mark`s Episcopal School. Academically, St. Mark`s made the switch easy as I found all of my high school classes effortless. Most prominent was the writing education. The English department does a fantastic job of preparing children for all of the writing they will have to do in high school. Additionally, the teachers are a hallmark of St. Mark`s. The loving faculty make learning fun and personal, as all the teachers strike meaningful bonds with the students. Finally, the community at St. Mark`s is unparalleled. From the weekly gatherings at Friday Eucharist to the numerous school events on the weekend, St. Mark`s truly feels like a community! I`m so glad I went to St. Mark`s as it was a truly marvelous time of my childhood. I will always remember St. Mark`s and the everlasting impact it had on me.
