- St. Mark's Episcopal School opened its doors in 1960 as a preschool full of eager children.
- As a parish day school of St. Mark's Episcopal Church its dream was to provide a nurturing early school.
- The dream continues with a strong commitment to exemplary education which integrates the academic, physical, interpersonal, and spiritual development of its students.
- Within this framework, instruction, which recognizes the propensity of children to learn, challenges children's natural enthusiasm for new discovery.
- By differentiating instruction, teachers begin where the learner is and motivate students to advance themselves to their potential.
- Students are encouraged, engaged, and challenged to seek depth in their experiences and utilize resources from multiple sources.

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.
