School Reviews

As a professor Rice University and mother of two young children, the academic learning environment is very important to me. I have found St. Mark's to be outstanding regarding academic rigor (many teachers are studying at the Early Literacy Leadership Academy at Rice). The school provides a good foundation for faith and the love of learning. The majority of families are dual-income, and most parents have advanced degrees. This is a great school that emphasizes intellect and faith in an unpretentious environment.
