elementary school is pretty good but middle school is not great. some teachers are very quick tempered and can easily be seen to not appreciate their students work. although academics and discipline are OK.

I used to be a student at St. Mark, but my family had to move. We live in Georgia now, but I miss the amazing teachers and incredable students. It was just a wonderful environment to be in everyday.

We switched our son to St Mark to get a real middle school experience. He has grown academically and socially in the friendly environs of St Mark. The teachers are excellent and inspire children to achieve beyond what is considered normal. The children learn discipline and social graces from the teachers' example and coaching. We're very glad that our son is a part of this great school.

My children were placed in St. Mark Middle School because at public school they were adrift in a vast sea of students and peer pressure. At St. Mark Middle School, the students wear uniforms which drastically inhibits peer pressure. The staff is very in tune with each students academic needs, as well as knows each students personality. There are high expectations on personal responsibility, and no innappropriate behavior is tolerated. The highly educated staff keeps the learning exciting and current. Students grow academically and have a sense of belonging. It is worth every penny!

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
