Love this school! My child has been here through junior high and has really blossomed as a student, as an athlete, and in her faith. The teachers are helpful and really help the students get ready for the next level. The kids all seem to get along well with each other, and any issues that may arise are dealt with quickly.

I graduated from St. Mark and now my children attend. I am very active in the school and know exactly what's going on. There's always some parents who will never be happy and think uprooting their child is the solution to their own problem of being unable to hear constructive criticism about their kid. It's a small school with one teacher per grade. If you can't get along with one, be an adult and suck it up. There are excellent teachers who not only teach, but care for our kids 7 hours a day, 5 days a week. After graduating, I attended a Catholic High School, and obtained my RN in college. There are expectations for the children's futures. It's not IF you are going to college, but WHERE. There's a list in the school office of graduates and their status at their High Schools. 90% are on Honors. Some have received academic scholarships for college. So St. Mark must be doing something right. It is a wonderful place to raise your child while giving them a great Catholic education. I've met many lovely families there, and am still friends with the "kids" I graduated with. For low tuition, the excellent education, and the "old school" atmosphere, St. Mark is an easy choice.

This school is awesome. It has great children that are fun to be around. The atmosphere is great with a church next to it that the children go to worship God on Tuesdays. The administration is very nice and they have wonderful education here. One of the examples is a former student here is now the "Director of Legislative Affairs" for the state of Florida, under Jeff Atwater, the CFO. Overall, it is a great school and it is fun for the kids.

God be with you if you send your child to this school. Very poor administration dont go to them with a problem because they will tell you it's your child. The VP is never seen i wouldn't know her if i fell over her. Teachers dont want to be bothered if your child needs any extra help so your child better keep up or o'well this is mostly 6-8 grade the lower grades the teachers are good. The class size are low and very cliquish mom's who wont even look at you if your not one of them. And if it's one of their kids who is a problem it will never get address. I am so sorry i sent my children to this school. i have to finish the year but i will be looking for a diffrent school come summer. i can go on forever about this school

Very poor administration lacking in educational experience. Academics are low compared to public. If you want a good education, St. Mark is not the place for you. Overcrowded classrooms and frustrated teachers having to deal with poor administration and disrespect. This school is losing enrollment due to parents seeing that St. Mark is lacking in alot of areas crucial to their child's education.

The tuition at this school is low when compared to other local school...but the expression you get what you pay for applies here. The school suffers with poor administration and overly involved cliquish parents.

School's greatest strength is it's diverse mix of students. Tuition is very inexpensive. Class sizes are way too big. Other resources are strained as well. Has many students with problems that go on for years unaddessed. Both learning and behavioral problems. This impacts the learning environment adversely.

St Mark is not the school for you if you child has any learning issues.The teachers have been there for so long they really don't care.my children left and attended a well know private school & they were so far behind it was a embaressment.It is a very cliquish school.The education is not worth paying a dime.Please do your research,too many kids in a class.

Poor structure in middle school Religion and Social Studies classes. All other teachers are qualified and do a good job teaching.

Nice school. Good teacher to student ratio. The only complaint I have is that there are two fee structures for tuition. Catholic and non-Catholic. You can guess who pays more. Doesn't seem very fair.
