We transferred from Riverside Presbyterian Day School (RPDS) and are extremely happy with St Mark's! My child has been warmly received by the other children, teachers, administration and parents. Parental involvement is strong. Teachers are brilliant and experienced. St Mark's administration hosts family picnics, fall festivals, classroom parties, etc.. There is a true sense of community and caring. The resource center is excellent. This is such an AMAZING school. We love it!

We have two children who have been at St. Mark's for the past 7 years and the school continually exceeds our expectations. Our children love going to school, and the teachers have inspired a true love of learning in both of them. The facilities, academics, and resources all are first rate, but the character development program truly sets St. Mark's apart. Children are recognized for demonstrating the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness, and self-control, and each grade has a special service project that helps even the youngest children learn to think of others and help those in need. I love that this school focuses on developing the whole child, mentally, physically, socially, artistically, and spiritually. St. Mark's is a very special place!

What an amazing school. My one year old started in the ELP this year and the morning teachers and afternoon care workers are outstanding. They love her so much and are doing an amazing job raising her while I work full time. The socialization with other toddlers is a bonus. From what I've seen of the older students (through 6th grade) I can only hope my daughter will become as confident, well spoken, and mannered as these children are!

Could not be happier with this wonderful school. The campus is beautiful, the teachers are excellent with the children and my little boy comes home brimming over with stories about his day. There are no negatives. All positives! Happy parents!!

My children have been at St. Mark's for nine years! They absolutely love going to school and adore their teachers. It is such a warm and caring environment, what an extraordinary way to grow up. They benefit from cutting edge technology and challenging academics in a setting that cultivates strong character development. The school continues to look for ways to improve instead of resting on their laurels. The administration seeks and appreciates honest feedback from parents. In the upper grades, the leadership opportunities help each child to develop their strengths and be an active example for the younger students. We are grateful to have this experience for our children, and know we are fortunate to have such a remarkable school in Jacksonville.

St Marks is a nurturing and wonderful school. We moved to Jacksonville and instantly we had a great community supporting us. St Marks is a loving school with a great curriculum. Our children have received a fabulous education there. The teachers go above and beyond to help each child. The small class sizes are a bonus.

We are so fortunate that we have a school like St Mark's where Christian values, leadership and top academics combine in a nurturing atmosphere and spectacular campus. I have had 5 children at St Mark's and we could not be more pleased.

This school is excellent! When we moved to JAX, we looked for a school with a challenging academic program & extra enrichment opportunities, dedicated & nurturing teachers, cutting edge technology in the classroom, a safe & pretty campus, a strong values-based program, and friendly staff & parents. We have been at St. Mark's for 2 1/2 years, and it has met all of our criteria. Our children are happy to go to school every day. This school provides a superior education in a nurturing environment. It is perfect for our family.

We have been attending St. Mark's school for seven years and it has been a really great experience for our three children. It is a rare neighborhood school that has a high quality of education - 100% of the teachers have bachelor degrees and almost 50% have master degrees. It has an open and green campus - where our kids get "a breath of fresh air" throughout the school day. St. Mark's school has a high standard for christian values and these values are actively nurished in our children through several spiritual and leadership programs at the school. The campus is very safe and I feel 100% confident that our children will be safe during the school day. St. Mark's also has a very good Academic Support Center that is included in the tuiton cost - the center provides enrichment for the advanced students as well as assistance for students who are not as smart and need a little extra help. St. Mark's is Jacksonville's best kept secret!

I couldn't be happier with my child's development at St. Marks. It's a wonderful environment and the teachers and staff care for my son so much so that he loves to go to school and dreads summer break!

I have been a parent at St Mark's for 5 years. My children have enjoyed loving, dedicated teachers in a small nurturing environment. I pass up several A rated public schools to bring my children to this school because the school is challenging to even the smartest children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
