This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
I owe thanks to everyone at that school because in some way or form they have an continue to effect my children's lives. The teachers offering the education and guidance, a parent helping in some way, the staff members all play a huge part in making things run like clockwork and the tireless hours the parent volunteers give to helping out. I see you guys, I know who you are, you guys are great and I can not thank you enough.
I have 2 kids at this school and have been part of this community for the last 3 years, we could not be happier. The Principal has made huge changes and is striving to continue to make this the best Elementary School on the West Side. The faculty are all committed to providing my kids with best educational experience ever. When every Faculty Member from TK to 8th Grade knows my kids names, I know they are interested, committed and they care. We helped plant 40+ trees this past weekend on the first part of the transformation of this campus and water reclamation project by providing shade, create habitat for birds and butterflies, reduces our energy consumption and creates science learning opportunities.”with features to help increase the learning experience highlighting nature. This is such a wonderful place, we are so happy for our kids
We joined St. Mark 7 years ago, when our oldest son started Kindergarten and we have nothing but great things to say about the school. Mary Ann McQueen the principal, is a strong and talented leader. We love the sense of community and the diversity. It is amazing to see how the kids interact with each other as a real family, the older kids know the younger ones by name, and there is a feeling of brotherhood all around. The Greening and Water Reclamation project that has been going on during the past months is making the school unique in the West side, and the first phase culminated this weekend with a Tree Fest event, where parents, students, faculty, and other community volunteers worked together planting trees around the school. It was inspiring seeing everyone in action! We are very proud to be part of St. Mark!
My wife and I moved our daughters over to St. Marks two years ago. The school is amazing. The teachers are engaging and challenging for the students with innovative teaching. But they also care about the students as individuals. And, the principal is an amazing leader who has a vision that is embraced by the faculty and parents. Great community and learning environment for kids!!!
