Our child has benefited greatly from her education at the St. Mark School. The environment is warm and nuturing. The academic curriculum is challenging and creative. The principal and teachers do a wonderful job to challenge the students while helping instill the confidence they need to succeed (math, writing, science, public speaking, special projects, are all excellent). It's amazing how much children learn and accomplish at this school. Also, we love knowing that our child is growing up with strong Catholic values, while also learning about and respecting the many religions that people practice around the world. There are many fun seasonal social events, and opportunities to participate for good in the community. Families participate and volunteer in this tightly knit community. It's a special school. Highly recommended!

You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
